Invasion watch complete with alien time code

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: The idea for Invasion came at the time when I worked on Vein. Both concepts share the idea of letting the end of a line represent an analog watch display number.

Tri-Sector watch is a 3-sided alien timepiece.

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: In recent months I have had a bit of a thing for triangular watches, sporting 12/5/9 time telling formats. For some reason (in my eyes) these two things seem to go togther very nicely. So here is another version called “Tri-Sector”.

Incognito – The fashion bracelet with a secret second life.

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: It may come to a surprise to TF fans and blog submitters alike, but believe it or not not everyone wears watches.

Tri/5/9 LED watch is deceptively simple to read. (update)

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: This is “Tri/5/9″ a back to basics 12/5/9 LED design.

I was trying to think of a simple and intuitive 12/5/9 watch and the most logical format I could think of was a triangular layout. One side for hours, one for tens of minutes and one for single minutes.
