Shoji LCD watch merges binary & architecture

Design submitted by Laszlo from Hungary.

Laszlo says: In traditional Japanese architecture, a shoji is a door, window or room divider consisting of translucent paper over a frame of wood which holds together a lattice of wood or bamboo.

Many people don’t like the binary numbers, but some people prefer the japanese culture and architecture. This concept is mixed a traditional Japanese look with binary thinking.

The time reading. Vertically is the hours and horizontally  is the minutes.

  1. Very cool! The time-telling has a bit of a learning curve, but nothing too difficult to figure out. I especially love the look of the wristband :)

  2. Im not usually a big fan of binary watches as I often have trouble reading them. No such problem here, the display is easily read and has a simple elegence. The strap design too is very elegent.

  3. WOW I already designed an analog watch with the same title and theme several months ago, but didn’t submit it to TF (yet) due to several reasons.

    Off course this watch is LCD and totally different from mine but I do appreciate GMTA, yet different approach and uniqueness of this product.

    Good job Laszlo! 5*

  4. The display is nice. I would only buy if it was made with an always on tech, because I have a binary watch in my collection. ( the full lines idea is nice because it’s more visible than blinking LEDs )
