Crimson watch tells time in a mysterious way

Design submitted by Firdaus from Malaysia.

Firdaus says: A mysterious way of time telling with eclipse code; this is Crimson watch design.

Despite its cryptic look, the time telling on Crimson is relatively easy to read. The eclipse ring indicates current hour and extended lights indicate current minute, all in analog +4 format. The watch material can be made in acetate (as depicted – black acetate) or stainless steel body and strap.                                                                                             

People who have interest in cryptic symbolism, mystery and art would  love this design.

This design can be achieved using LED technology and I believe it is suitable to fit in TF product line.

  1. Cool! It’s a nifty little design; easy enough to read, but unique enough to attract a little attention. But what happens when minutes == hours? Such as at 12:00, 1:05, 9:45, etc.

    1. Hello injust thank you for your time commenting. At time such as 12:00 and 1:05 etc, it would look almost exactly as depicted in silver+blue LEDs version on cover page, which shows 2:10pm. I think it is still cool! Please let me know if you need more example. Cheers and have a nice day!

  2. Mmmm a yummy creamsun! I love this one! I might have to change a concept I’m working on :P But I would really like to have this beauty. The time display looks fantastic! I would like to see times like 3:15 or 6:27 and hope it still looks great, when the big beam hits the gap. I think so. 5*/YES

    1. Hi Samukun, if example like 2:10 as depicted in silver+blue version couldn’t satisfy you, I’ve made one special in purple acetate for you. It’s 6:27 . I think it is cool, hopefully you’ll like it. ;-)

      Cheers and and have a good day. Thanks for your support!

  3. Stellar (hehe) work there, Firdaus. It looks like you’ve hit the sweet spot between readable, cryptic and make-able. Plus it looks really very nice indeed. =) Good luck!

  4. Very Nice Fir!
    For me like Anders says it really strikes the right balance between crypticness, readibility, makeability and wantability! 5ability and Yesability! :D

  5. It still looks good when the “minutes” are in the gap, like your 2:10 and 6:27 examples, but is even better when they don’t, which is a lot of the time (55 minutes out of every hour).
    I would definitely want to add one of these to my watch collection, the problem being deciding which colour combination to buy. An easy 5*/Y

    1. Hi Nev thanks for that insight. Yup would agree, perhaps that gap would look like special event is the series of cryptography or special message in the crop circle (such as missing link)… Cheers for the wish and have a nice day or night!

  6. I like the idea. The display would always be interesting. (It remind me of a concept I did, which was using a similar display, with e-paper tech, for the hour & hands for the minutes/seconds. In the near future, I’ll redo it with LCD screen)
