Peter says: I really have a fondness for LED watches and the sense of depth and mystery the displays can give you. LCD or TFT rely on the graphics or shapes of the blocks to create a feeling of depth. The trouble with deep looking displays is they tend to make for a deep watch which isn’t always appealing to all.
Colby says: With inspiration from the intrigue of The Bermuda Triangle and crop circles, coupled with the classic feel of 1960-1980’s sci-fi movies, the ‘Bermuda’ was born. My underlying principle was to use an unconventional watch shape, and include a one-of-a-kind function.
Dietrich says : This idea was inspired by my inaccurate memory of a 1980s video game called Qix, and also by sun-dials. I originally had two watch ideas – one for the outer triangles and for an inner triangle, so I merged the two.

Firdaus & Heather say: The display for this LCD watch concept, Codex Cube, was inspired by the Kisai 3D Unlimited display. By using triangular digits (originally developed for our previous Codex submission) instead of rectangular ones, we can display two digits on each “face”, allowing room for hours, minutes, and alas, the ever-changing seconds.
