Exostrusion LED watch diffuses the time.

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I had an idea for a simple LED watch using inspiration from the rear diffusers sported by modern performance cars. These diffusers are often elaborate looking extruded forms with various fins and facets. I decided this inspiration could create a nice display frame. “Exostrusion” was the result.

Topographic watch maps out the time in 3D

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: For a while now I have thought about creating a watch using Topography as an inspiration. “Topography is a field of geoscience and planetary science comprising the study of surface shape and features of the Earth” This is often shown using curved lines to show the shape and lie of the land at it’s various altitudes.

It was only when I did an internet search I found that someone had beat me to it. The existing design uses the Topographic element as a decoration on an analogue watch face. So I decided to make a digital design using the Topographic element as the time telling.

Batiodea watch inspired by ocean stingrays

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I was doing some sketching and scribbled a simple 12/5/9 display layout made up of three ellipses. This simple layout had a slightly alien look to it that could interpreted as some kind of unidentified flying object, or some yet undiscovered creature from the deepest and darkest parts of the oceans. Hence the name “Batiodea” (Batoidea is a superorder of cartilaginous fish commonly known as rays)

Invader LED watch with chevron display

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: This is the third and final instalment….or is it a prequel? of the model used to create “Stealth II” and “3Delix” a long long time ago in a galaxy near the west midlands in good old blighty. It occurred to me that the chevron shaped segmentation on this model was slightly reminiscent of the arches of the Sydney Opera House. So I decided to create this 12-5-9 format watch based on this inspiration.
