Jacques says: In a quest for a minimalistic watch I excluded all time reading functionality from the front of the watch and placed it on the side.
It’s actually just a very minimalistic watch on where the time can be read on the side. The dot light represents the hour hand and the ring light the minute hand. The time can be read rather easy but this of course also depends on the hour of the day.
The time reading functionality on the side leaving the front blank, creates a surprising effect, compared to the many watches that have frontal displays with numerous clocks and pointers etc.
Peter says: Being a fan of watches its hard to believe that there are people out there that dont like them.
Some of these people are also not keen on mobile phones let alone having to look at their phones to tell the time. So it seems there is a niche for a time telling device that is neither a phone or watch but is compact to be carried on one person.
Most people carrier a wallet or purse as debit cards and credit cards are a necessary evil of modern living so I decided to come up with a credit card sized clock that is compact enough to fit into a wallet or pocket or could be worn on ones person. The creativly named “Time-Card” was born.

Peter says: This is Saturn II, a re-design of my original Saturn concept. Saturn was one of my first concepts submitted to the blog. It never made it onto the blog presumably due to being a little adventurous from a technical perspective.
This version is a lot simpler than the original but still retains the original’s feel.
