Radical & Sculptural E-Ink Watch Design

Design submitted by Jonathan from France.

Jonathan says: “I wanted to use e-ink technology which is ideal for small displays like watches; low energy, sharpness, contrast. The clarity of black and white is also interesting.

Glossy black metal, embellished with small chrome parts. The contrast with the white background of the e-ink display is particularly sexy. The digital display is complete, it is adjusted using two button. On the bottom time appears on a black background and merges with the color of the case. Located on the edge, it can provide telling time without bending the handle.

The watch is rather large on the wrist, the lines are bold and radical. Some brutality emanates from that object. I think this is a model that is primarily intended for man who wants to wear an accessory refined, exclusive, radical but certainly elegant.

E-ink technology is rarely used but offers many advantages, both technical and aesthetic. The case design is radical and sculptural, it is easily recognizable and unlike any other. Horodron HD-01, stand out with style !

  2. J’aime beaucoup cette montre Jo! Très classe.
    But i do have a suggestion, you should stack more info into each of the stripes, which is to say, like put “sunday” aligned left on the first row and “09” aligned right on that same row that way you could have less rows. But that’s my point of view.

    Also, what does the last row stand for? 0-129? :/

  3. I’d buy that piece! I like the hard edges very much and the displayed information. The shape of the case is very cool. This could also be LCD, maybe cheaper than e-ink? Anyway: Very well executed! 5*

  4. When can I pre-order? ;)

    (Might want an LED or two in the ridge, to spill light over the displays for night-time reading. But this is one of the few watches I’ve seen that I’d be willing to wear without that.)

  5. I love the contrast of vertical lines on the face against horizontal lines on the strap and main time, really nice detail. I can see some influence from the Thix T3 that I bought for my girlfriend a few years ago from TF but I think the sharp edges and fine detail offer enough of a difference to make this a unique watch.

    I’m just a bit disappointed that the time is simply written in digits.

  11. I so wish an e-ink watch could be make one day. This one can appeal to both mainstream customers (simple to read) and people searching for originality (the technology used). In my opinion, the seconds indicator and the “day-since-beginning-of-year” could be removed, if it can help to lower cost or increase battery durability…
