Nico says: I like Tokyoflash watches ever since I read gizmag articles about Tokyoflash. In particular, I like the Kisai Rogue Touch Pocket Watch, how the twelve large blocks on the outer ring tells the time.
I then think how else I can tell time with a similar concept but adding additional information and not make it more complex. That is how I come up with a pie chart style that divides the watch into two parts: dark and bright/day and night.
Heather says: I was playing around with the idea of having a 3D sort of feel to the display, when I noticed that if I use different heights for LEDs, I could make a pretty readable digit-inside-digit display, and the watch would still have a really cool look when LEDs are off. I call this design Relief.
Pawel says: The quad watch was my first submission to the blog. Surprised by the positive feedback of the community I decided to develop the idea further creating quad². The objective was to design a minimalistic display that shows time in a un-obvious fashion but is easy to read if you know how. (original concept here)
