Edge LCD 008

Edge LCD watch updates future device concept

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: This is Edge LCD, based on the original Edge design.

The machines sent an assassin back in time to the present to eliminate the leader of the resistance. The resistance countered and brought future tech with them. This future tech was replicated the best it could be using present day manufacturing methods. Edge was the first!

The time telling method is exactly the same as the original version, the 4 digit shaped ribbons express 4 digits. In this case the ribbons are replaced with a mirror LCD working in negative, the rest of the face has a mirror masking layer. The time is displayed by the darker areas which are illuminated when the backlight is activated. Above the LCD is a 3D shaped lens which has an extruded shape of the digits, this gives the display a hint of 3D gives a similar feel to the original version.

This design should appeal to the founders of the resistance, pioneers of the first cyborgs and bio-mechanically enhanced humans and of course your average Joe on the high street.

This design stands out from others due to its menacing looks, 3D effect LCD display and the strap mounted controls from the original. This design is totally feasible with todays technology and has twice as much internal space for the electronics as the original.

  1. Love this very much, and I think it’s an improvement. I’d always be worried about getting a piece of carrot stuck in the gaps (re the original). Way cool! 5y

  2. Nice update Pete! Mirror LCD is pretty darn cool…

      1. I’m not on Facebook, on principle more than anything else, but I do use Google+… Might’ve been an opportunity to talk about things other than watches (cars, for instance =). Ah well…

        Thanks, it did turn out quite pretty (if incredibly impractical as a candlestick). Yes, it’s a single strip of wood about 6ft long, steamed and wrapped around some formers, then glued to itself. If I recall correctly, it’s twisted to make it a moebius strip as well…

    1. Thanks Mr Mushy! Yeah there is no reason the numbers couldnt be more spaced out. I just left the geometry as close to the original version as it seemed to be well recieved. Cheers for the feedback the vote and the comment! :D

    1. Hi Patrick, it’s been a while, I hope you are well? I was going to email you the other day cos it had been a while. Yeah this is an update of the original edge design from about this time last year. It’s not as dynamic but hopefully more makeable. Yeah for the comment and vote, and it’s nice to hear from you! :D

  4. Hello,

    I love the dials with depth, as they are on analog watches or other displays (3d mirrors bottomless etc.).
    Compared to the previous concept, the most successful and really finished, although I like things “raw” side and “cheese grater” I liked :-)
    But … it’s mostly aesthetics of the strap that I like … I love this style sheet (certainly more portable and comfortable), and it is rare to see two bracelets with different pieces (Profile superb) and a box with different horns 12pm & 6am.
    how the connection is scheduled case/strap? (Tablecloth wire or cable directly from the horns).
    I put five stars for 2 (watch and strap … mostly)

        I am a watchmaker, and if I like the traditional watchmaking, I also love watches and avant-garde projects But it’s a pity that I did speak French only, because I would love to talk a lot more about the featured on Tokyo Flash projects.
        Sorry for my english pitiful :-/
        and thank you for your sharing :-)
