Mercury analogue watch with liquid metal time telling

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I wanted to come up with a back to basics analogue design with a hint of sci-fi which would be easy to make and traditional in its time telling. “Mercury” was born.

The time telling is traditional analogue using off the shelf movements. This twist in this case is that the hands and markers are organic in form and look like that they are a splat or splash of liquid metal or some kind of gelatinous alien lifeform.

MK-1 WEAPON watch displays alien countdown

Design submitted by Valentin from the USA.

Valentin says: I came up with this design when i was in a meeting and my friend asked me for the time, so i showed him the time with my my fingers using my left hand. I know its kinda corny the way i came up with this lol but i think it works. I called it MK-1 WEAPON. Being a alien weapon, i decided on one of the color schemes to represent master chief from halo.

Design submitted by Justin from the UK.

Justin says: The idea for this watch came to me while doodling (again). I wanted to have a watch that used simple to read numbers and that also had a cryptic mode. There seems to be a desire for both nowadays and so I began with that frame of mind.

ZION e-paper watch is a colourful take on the digital time.

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: This is a parallel development of a more feasible version of the ITO idea next to the ITO•E. I called this version ZION.

ZION uses colored segmented e-paper to display sharp numbers, aligning them vertically. The number style is reflected in the watch geometry – some sharp angles here and there, some small decent details, and looking generally simple.

3Delix futuristic watch uses a helix to gauge time

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: This is 3Delix an evolution of an older design called “Swirl”

Swirl worked by using spiral shaped hands connected to an analogue movement which converted radial movement to linia movement. Allowing the time to be display in a column like window. 3Delix takes this concept into the third dimension.

Graphikal watch graphs out the time.

Design submitted by Justin from the UK.

Justin says: I was browsing through a friends mathematics coursework and saw graphs, bar graphs, charts and numbers etc and I noticed how easy it would be to assign the basics of time telling to one of these simple looking forms.
