Heather says: I came up with the idea for Concave when I thought about making circular digits, one behind the other. In order to accomplish this, although the display is flat, I imagined each digit to be a curved surface, like a contact lens, for example. By placing the digits one behind the other, and increasing size, we can see these concentric circular digits, each whose center segment is being partially blocked by the digit in front of it.
Colby says: With inspiration from the intrigue of The Bermuda Triangle and crop circles, coupled with the classic feel of 1960-1980’s sci-fi movies, the ‘Bermuda’ was born. My underlying principle was to use an unconventional watch shape, and include a one-of-a-kind function.
Cory says: There are no seasons on a starship. No weeks, months, or years. The minute becomes meaningless, since there are 60 of those in an ‘hour’ and 24 of those in a ‘day.’ Star faring humans long ago began using the Kilosecond. Metric time, for when the rotation of a distant homeworld no longer holds any bearing.
Laszlo says: This watch keeps its LCD screen always on. The built in light sensor is activate the backlight in dark environment. The upper two digits is the hours the two of the middle is the minutes and the lower two digits is the seconds.

Peter says: I was trying to think of a very simple and intuitive way of showing the time with essential a digital “one handed analogue” type of time telling format. The easiest way it seemed to do this is to have a hand moving in two directions, rotationally for one part of the time telling and towards and away from the pivot for the other. I soon realised after looking at one of my older designs “Tri-Ripple” that the most intuitive way of doing this is an expanding orbit around the pivot point. Like a satellite slowly moving slowly away from the object its orbiting.
