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.
Smart watches are the must have gadget of the moment. They have been a popular theme on the blog too, with various weird and wonderful schemes suggested. One of the main issues the blog has highlighted is that not everyone who likes these weird and wonderful schemes necessarily needs all the expensive features that come included in a smart watch, and more importantly they don’t want to pay for features they don’t need.
Andrew says: I decided to create a watch that uses old fashion / calligraphy styled digits.
This lead to the “Gothic” wristwatch design. Which uses a: LED, LCD or E-paper / E-ink to display the time Display. Constructed in either: IP black, Gun-Metal or Stainless Steel This watch has three display modes: Alarm, Date & Time (Default).
Sam says: I was scribbling around for a time display, that would be cool as tattoo or graffiti, some sort of iconic symbol that would draw it’s justification from the look first, then by the hidden meaning.
The idea of stacking numbers isn’t new, but there are many ways how to do it. I chose a 12-5-9 time format and gave the numbers of each category different proportions. This is where the name PLUS comes from, because the first and the last digit have the opposite proportions and form a cross.
