Trax MKII 012

Trax MkII watch rolls into the combat zone.

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I wanted to come up with a watch design based on driven belts. The first thought that popped into my head when thinking about belts was caterpillar tracks and what caterpillar tracks are usually attached too. So I decided to use tanks as an inspiration for this watch concept.

The time on this design is told by either three of four tracks (belts) the track/s on the left side tell the hours and the ones on the right tell the minutes. The time is the row of numbers in the center of the watch which correspond to the rocker style button which also acts as a marker for the time. These belts could be driven by small motors or a mechanical movement. I have opted for a 24hr format but would also work with a 12hr format.

Clearly this design is very industrial as you would expect when the inspiration is military hardware. So therefore will only appeal to certain types of people who like the industrial look.

People who like mechanical objects, engineered products and military hardware may like this design. It may appeal action men, big kids and adventurers alike.

This design stands out because of its industrial look and time telling method.

The belts give it a mechanical feel which could be powered by existing movements adding to its feasibility.

    1. Hi ID, when I mentioned mechanical movement I ment a traditional analogue movement (which could be a kinietic powered movement). If this design was powered by a analogue movement it would be difficult to display the date without adding more belts/tracks for the date. If it was powered by digital motors you could in theory have a date mode using the existing belts/tracks.
      I hope this answers your question, thanks for taking interest in my design and thank you for the comment! :D
