K-sec LCD watch for star travellers

Design submitted by Cory from the USA.

Cory says: There are no seasons on a starship. No weeks, months, or years. The minute becomes meaningless, since there are 60 of those in an ‘hour’ and 24 of those in a ‘day.’ Star faring humans long ago began using the Kilosecond. Metric time, for when the rotation of a distant homeworld no longer holds any bearing.

The easiest way it seemed to do this is to have a hand moving in two directions, rotationally for one part of the time telling and towards and away from the pivot for the other. I soon realised after looking at one of my older designs “Tri-Ripple” that the most intuitive way of doing this is an expanding orbit around the pivot point. Like a satellite slowly moving slowly away from the object its orbiting.

11°11'11'' Watch Design Points to the Time

Design submitted by Romain from France.

Romain says: “I had the idea of an arrow-shaped watch design, with also digits like arrows. In short, an arrow-watch! I also wanted that, at a specific moment of the day, there to be three arrows instead of the digits. For this moment, I chose 11 hours, 11 minutes, 11 seconds.

ZeroPointOne Watch Design Inspired by HAL 9000

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

My idea is an LCD display, that reacts to light, like a human eye does. To express this idea, I let myself inspire by HAL 9000, the ship’s computer in Stanley Kubrick’s motion picture 2001: a space odyssey. Continue reading ZeroPointOne Watch Design Inspired by HAL 9000

Sliced Watch Design Lets You Decide How To Read Time

Design submitted by Matt from Canada.

Matt says: “This idea came while I was working on another design (the AD 1224). It’s a combination of an analog hour display with digitally displayed minutes and second (or month and day ). Continue reading Sliced Watch Design Lets You Decide How To Read Time
