Design submitted by Cory from the USA.
Cory says: While viewing a droplet of water on high speed camera, I noticed two things. Each time the droplet enters the water, a smaller, lighter droplet bounces back to the surface, this happens many times over until the droplet is microscopic in size. Water droplets are also not tear drop shaped, but perfectly spherical. I wanted to make a timepiece that captured this.
The inner 3 ripples are hours, 3 6 9 and 12 are in their relative positions on a clockface, while the other hours build up toward them. Minutes in groups of 5 form the outer ripple, and single minutes are shown as the droplet in the center.
Those fans of Tokyoflash who are more fluid in their view of time would enjoy this concept.
The LEDs are heavily refracted by the curved glass of the face. When viewed from odd angles it gives the illusion of water, when viewed from head on, the LEDs are easily read.
