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.
Valentin says: I was going through my many designs that haven’t submitted and found this one I designed a while ago. I came up with this one when I was more into vintage video games and stuff. don’t really know what to call it. I though maybe something like “arcade” “perspective” or “emulator”? I don’t know since it really just is all that at once.
Matt says: I wanted a watch that was using 3-4 blocks for the hour/month and color changing LED’s for when the blocks are used for the 2nd/3rd/etc series of numbers. For the minute, I wanted 2 big digits for the minute/day.
I wanted to use a 1 piece lens & add a grid over it. The best size is a challenge. This is why I did 3 pictures/2 3D models. Engraving the lens was another option.
Justin says: I was browsing through a friends mathematics coursework and saw graphs, bar graphs, charts and numbers etc and I noticed how easy it would be to assign the basics of time telling to one of these simple looking forms.
