Austin says: The hours are displayed on the left of the face, while the minutes are given on the right. The hands work from bottom to top, then start over again. The seconds are given by the top hand, and the lower hand shows the day of the week. So in the picture, the time is 07:45:40 on a Sunday.
Sam says: I played once more with digits that got stolen the center segment and thought about emphasizing the the void on the hardware level of the watch design. This is how the two columns of LEDs were made.
Justin says: This idea began from a desire to make an analog watch but by using LEDs rather than traditional hands. I wanted to make something futuristic looking and something that had a theme, I went for a microchip as a starting point and the rest of the design grew from there.
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.
Sam says: This is a parallel development of a more feasible version of the ITO idea next to the ITO•E. I called this version ZION.
ZION uses colored segmented e-paper to display sharp numbers, aligning them vertically. The number style is reflected in the watch geometry – some sharp angles here and there, some small decent details, and looking generally simple.
