Retro-bot LED watch shows the time robo-style.

Design submitted by Heather from the USA.

I was inspired by an older blog entry posted by Tokyoflash that used two colors of LEDs to count the time: http://www.tokyoflash.com/blog/2010/02/time-to-streamline/ The Retro-bot LED watch concept is meant to be similar to the classic Tokyoflash watches, but instead of using counting to tell the time, the display shows a distorted version of the digital time.

Turbofan Mechanical watch with armour plated blades!

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: This is “Turbofan” a remake of an earlier design called “Fan”.

Code TFT watch emulates computer terminal.

Design submitted by Scott from the UK.

Scott says: I’ve watched a fair amount of sci-fi, from Star Trek to The Matrix and of course Tron! ;-) In nearly all of these there are super hi-tech computers and interfaces that look unbelievably complex, almost impossible to understand; yet they always have someone happily pushing buttons seemingly understanding everything?!

I’ve always thought they must know something we don’t, there must be some kind of trick or some sort of ‘code’. So i decided to see if i could come up with my own interface/display that would look like gibberish to most, and obvious to others.  Kind of like the dreaded ‘Blue screen of death’ on a broken computer.

Revelation watch features pop-up cylinder.

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam Says: The inspiration for this watch comes from a cylinder watch I made years ago from a normal battery clockwork. I wanted to make an analog wrist watch which shows the time on the outer edge of the case, not on the top.

Encryption LCD watch with morse code style display.

Design submitted by Lloyd from Australia.

Lloyd Says: “Encryption” is an LCD concept watch that displays the time and date in an enigmatic way using what appears to be Morse code.

Don’t worry you don’t need to know Morse code. If you just ignore the dots, you’ll see that the remaining dashes form 4 digits giving the time or date.
