A colorful binary LED watch design that uses six bi-color LEDs to display the time behind a sleek smoked black lens. Red LEDs indicate hours, yellow LEDs indicate minutes. Binary is simple to understand when you know how and this format of time telling allows for a minimal but unique time display.
Sam says: “Two things guided me to make this watch design. The first thing was the idea to make a wrist watch that the wearer can adapt as they please. The second thing was, I thought about why should one use e-paper for a watch? It is just black and white, has no background light and doesn’t look spectacular at all. The big benefit is, it can show anything you want (within the restriction, e-paper has) and the black-white is pretty artistic actually, so it was the perfect display type for my idea. And the word “spectacular” is subjective, you decide how the display on your watch looks! This watch is your canvas… Continue reading →
This submission, which seems relevant in the current climate, is reminiscent of the Radio Active watch design previously sold by Tokyoflash Japan. The nuclear themed display shows hours 1-12 across the bottom, groups of 5 minutes, 5-55 in the top left section and four single minutes in the radioactive symbol in the top right. The effect is something that looks like a display for measuring radiation levels. Continue reading →
Cory says: “Golden Ratio, known also as Phi or Fibonacci proportion, is pervasive throughout nature. φ is the mathematical symbol for it and it forms a beautiful loop called the Golden Spiral. You can see it in everything from tiny sea horses, nautilus shells, ram’s horns, the human face, and even galaxies. It is now also represented in this analog watch design. Continue reading →
The Cactus is an LED watch design, but it has a clever feature. When the lights illuminate to display the time, they point in the direction of the hour, group of 10 minutes and single minute enabling time reading to be that much easier whilst at the same time giving you a truly original and artistic watch design.

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 →
Laszlo says: “This analog watch design displays the time using two screen printed acrylic dials. These dials spin above the numbers. Hours are shown on the left side, minutes on the right side. Both dials are divided into two sections. The hour dial shows 0-6 hours on the outside and 6-12 hours on the inside. The minutes dial works in the same way on the other side.” Continue reading →
