Logan says: Space Engine is a subtle geometry for the 12-5-9 method of telling the time. I wanted to see how close to a traditional watch layout you could use with 12-5-9, to make it as easy to read as possible.
Galen says: There are many designs of watches that use binary numeral system to represent time. I wanted to use a different numeral system which looks cryptic and in the same time needs less calculation then binary.
Peter says: I had an idea for a simple LED watch using inspiration from the rear diffusers sported by modern performance cars. These diffusers are often elaborate looking extruded forms with various fins and facets. I decided this inspiration could create a nice display frame. “Exostrusion” was the result.
Peter says: For a while now I have thought about creating a watch using Topography as an inspiration. “Topography is a field of geoscience and planetary science comprising the study of surface shape and features of the Earth” This is often shown using curved lines to show the shape and lie of the land at it’s various altitudes.
It was only when I did an internet search I found that someone had beat me to it. The existing design uses the Topographic element as a decoration on an analogue watch face. So I decided to make a digital design using the Topographic element as the time telling.
Brad says: Video games have long been a part of my life. Today’s games have incredible graphics and story telling power, but some of the real old school games are the ones that made big impressions on me. This is a watch designed to honor some of the old shooter arcade games. This is the Genesis.
Peter says: I was doing some sketching and scribbled a simple 12/5/9 display layout made up of three ellipses. This simple layout had a slightly alien look to it that could interpreted as some kind of unidentified flying object, or some yet undiscovered creature from the deepest and darkest parts of the oceans. Hence the name “Batiodea” (Batoidea is a superorder of cartilaginous fish commonly known as rays)
