Design submitted by Laszlo from Hugary.

Laszlo says: The Sonar watch is ultimate minimalist expression of time keeping – TheSonar is intuitive to read. The concept, while appearing mysterious, is quite simple once understood.

Anders says: I recently found this half-finished concept rattling about on my hard drive. I’d left it because I wasn’t sure if it was worth submitting, but when I found it there was a cry of ‘let the public decide’, so I finished it and here it is!
