Andrew says: Because I have always been fascinated with watches, I decided to try my hand at designing one myself. I really wanted to create something unique, that hasn’t already been done like a million times before. That’s when I came up with Eclipse. You can watch a small motion graphic about it here: https://vimeo.com/70057038Continue reading →
Anders says: Scribbling away one day, I sketched a display with curving lines across it. It looked to me like some sort of scanner display as seen in countless SF films. A few more lines and I had a concept; Astrolabe. The always-on OLED display adds visual punch.
Devindh says: I wanted to design a watch that had an emphasis on texture as well as displaying time. I decided that the angular pattern of digital displays would provide a good way to combine both of these things.
Anders says that hydraulics has always fascinated him and he wanted to translate it into a watch design. He had the idea of a glass torus with two pistons, one fixed and one moving, telling time by pumping oil from one side of the pistons to the other while simultaneously rotating the whole torus.

This watch design tells the time like a standard analog watch, the difference is in how it does it. Everyone’s done the school physics experiment where you pour iron fillings on a paper with a magnet underneath. Anders says that that was the inspiration for this concept. A blank face sprinkled with steel particles. Continue reading →
Andreas says: “I wanted time to speak through the shape and surface, so I looked at a grown piece of crystal, the perfect symbol for time, and transformed it into a relief surface of my watch. The time is displayed by three circles of dots from inside to outside; Hours, Minutes, Seconds. Continue reading →
Devindh says: “This design combines 2 ideas. Stylistically it is influenced by the Mongolian tradition of reading and writing vertical text, a practice now common in other parts of Asia, including Japan. The second idea is based on the simple desire to protect the screen from scratches, making the piece more durable.
A simple time way to read the time, integrated into a simple case design. Laszlo suggests this design would use OLED to display the time but could alternatively use LCD blocks and then, like the Tokyoflash Rogue watch, could light up to highlight the time in green as on the example picture.
