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 →
Sam says: This time I liked to make an expressive watch based upon a pyramid. I was inspired by the theory, that the big pyramid in Giza (also: Gize, Gizeh) or mayan pyramids were build by aliens. The pyramids influence architecture in sci-fi movies so why not a watch? This I thought a futuristic alien pyramid watch would be cool.
Sam says: The inspiration for this watch came from the number sign (hash, pound sign, rarely octothorp in different variations). This symbol divides an area into nine squares.
I sketched around for a digital display and quickly came to the double square numbers, you can see in the images. I took the name Octothorpe due to it’s emphasis on the number 8. There are 8 squares forming the time display and each of them is made of 8 segments.
