Depth watch creates 3D tunnel effect with EL paper

Design submitted by Justin from the UK.

Justin says: I was toying with different shapes and decided that a square would be easier to work with this time. For those who know my work (few though they may be) you may have seen my “Mad Scientist Sketch-Pad”…this is a Frankensteins monster of that pad…

“Inverse” Drivers style analogue watch with mirror system.

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: Back in the day I did a design called “UFO” which featured a wrap around display that went around the perimeter of the watch and would have been useful as a driver’s watch.

I then had a eureka moment and realised that it could be done relatively easily using an off the shelf analogue movement.

Minimalist ‘EInked’ ring-watch and companion wristwatch

Type-X watch makes its mark on your wrist

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: This is “Kisai Type-X” a back to basics 12-5-9 design.

I didn’t have a particular inspiration in mind when I decided on an “X” shaped LCD display, but in retro-spec I wonder if  I was subconsiously influnced by the “microsoft x-box” logo or the drones in the “Oblivion” film.

Constellation watch is the astronomers companion (update)

Design submitted by Delphine from France.

Delphine says: I was looking at a rotating sky map and I thought it would be great to have one small everywhere I go. Date and time are already on it so why not a watch? And this is how Constellation was born.
