This is an updated take on an old submission of mine: Sliderule (hence the name; like sliderule, only more so). It’s been rattling about in my brain for ages, and I just recently found the energy to finish it.
Anders says: I’ve tried to design it to sit somewhere between art deco, raygun gothic and steampunk.
It is a classic analog watch where the ‘pole’ of the globe indicates the hour, the thin end of the inner orbit marks the minute, and the outer orbit the seconds. This ensures that the display is constantly moving at a noticeable speed, giving a more dynamic impression. Continue reading →
Customization is the theme with this concept watch design. Watches from Tokyoflash Japan are all original, unique designs but this design idea takes personalization to a different level.
The watch module is a touch screen LCD display and is a self contained unit, so it can be easily transferred between different watch cases, allowing you to more freedom to choose a color and a shape that suits you. You could even collect a number of watch cases and wear a different one each day. Continue reading →
Cory says: “I’m a big fan of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, and my favorite character was always the Cheshire Cat. I don’t much care for most of the depictions of the cat in popular culture, so I thought I would make my own. Most depictions of the cat are either too playful, or too sinister. I aimed to create a work of art that depicted the cat as mischievous, playful, and a tad sinister; one that is also a timepiece. Continue reading →
Sam says: “I saw a documentary on TV about the “fifth pocket” on a a pair of jeans. They interviewed people on the streets and asked, “What is this little pocket for?” The most people said, it is for coins, chewing gum packages or condoms. Some people knew it was originally made to carry a pocket watch. After seeing this, I wanted to revive the initial usage of the fifth pocket also known as watch pocket. Continue reading →
Andreas says: “Watching the starcraft 2 trailer I saw Arcturus looking at his pocket watch. I liked the idea of a pocket watch, because nowadays watches are again more a lifestyle object than a necessity. I don’t like the old antique design style, so i decided to build my own. The result is a steam/cyber/retro punk pocket watch.” Continue reading →
A new concept from the Tokyoflash Design Studio, this time an adaptation of the Night Vision concept. This is a great alternative to wearing a watch in the traditional manner. The image below shows the time piece attached to a key ring but this is a concept that would also look great on a key chain or worn on a chain like a pocket watch. This design has blue LEDs, rather than green in the previous design. Do you have an LED color preference?
The shape of this concept is unusual but is definitely original. As you can see, the time can be read at a glance; hours around the edge of the hexagonal shape, the gap in the lights showing the hour. Digital minutes in the center.
