Swirl watch uses vertical gauge for analogue time.

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I was trying to come up with a simple but unusual time display using a bar graph like layout.

It would have been very easy and maybe a little predictable to use LEDs or LCD blocks to do this when I had a little Eureka moment and realised that it could be very easy to achieve with a standard analogue movement.

Quicksilver LCD watch tells time with virtual droplets of Mercury

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: I checked my thermometer recently (thanks to a summer flu) and and it’s one that works with quicksilver.

The inspiration came from the observation of quicksilver forming drops before joining a bigger mass of itself.

Rock out with the “Diapason” Guitar watch

Design submitted by Delphine from France.

Delphine says: I’m an amateur guitar player and I love music so I’d love to wear a guitar watch.

I see the design made with a metal case with luminous lines representing guitar strings. The strap is made in leather with metal frets (like a guitar fretboard) closed  by a “jaws” clasp.

I tell the time on a screen. The numbers are made with string lines.

Segmented LED watch stacks digits

Design submitted by Laszlo from Hungary.

Laszlo says: When I cut it in half in the classic segments, I discovered an interesting effect.

This is what I used to the design of this watch. The larger (outer) segments indicate the hours, the lower (inner) segments indicate the minutes.

Large LEDs with a little animation is very impressive effects can be achieved.

I recommend this for those who prefer the of the cryptic  appearance of the time.
