Cybernetic wristwatch gauges your internal power cell.

Design submitted by Andrew from the UK.

Andrew says: In the future humanity is extinct & only the artificial intelligence machines initially created by man remain. These Androids have created a time portal to travel in the past & try to save humans from their own environmental , political, historical mistakes. Cybernetic is inspired by Peter’s Edge wristwatch.

RESET watch tilts time to your wrist movement.

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: This watch concept is a proposal for the usage of an accelerometer. The tilting angle of the watch could define the look of the display. Only one special angle lets the watch show the time in a readable fashion. The wearer could define this angle by pressing a button when facing the display. Doing so would RESET the display. Any other angle different from the defined one, causes the numbers to dissolve. The bigger the tilting angle, the stronger the effect.

Hourglass e-paper watch simulates the sands of time.

Design submitted by Heather from the USA.

Heather says: In an attempt to “change the way I think about time”, I pondered ways of telling time that could be different.  In doing so, I thought about an hourglass, which led to the creation of rounded digits that could appear to fill an hourglass.

Keysay watch design inspired by keyboard symbols.

Design submitted by Jose from Spain.

Jose says: I could say that this idea came to me after exciting reading about the machine “Enigma”, developed by the Germans to encrypt their messages during II World War, or has been the result of using a metalanguage as Leetspeak, or such once a strange code suggested by a science fiction movie, but none of this would be true. The truth, is that the idea came accidentally to stay absorbed looking at the mini keyboard of my Macbook; suddenly, there it was, the first line of keys, and above each number a symbol, and thus the ¡1 to 0!.

Timeline LED watch uses motion to display time

Design submitted by Zoltan from Hungary.

Zoltan says: I wanted to created a watch that looks special, but you couldn’t tell at first glance what it is.

Nevertheless it’s easy to tell the time by looking at it.

The watch has 13 LEDs in a single row.The LEDs are controlled by an accelerometer and as you shake your hand they light up at the appropriate time to show the digits.

Tilt watch uses light, shadows to tell time.

Design submitted by Ron from The Netherlands.

Ron says: I was playing around withe the iPad tilt function and wondered if I could make it work into a watch.

The watch should be sleek, sophisticated and simple. You see a lot of tiny cubes. By changing the tilt of the watch you change direction the light shines on the cubes. The numbers also consists of the same cubes but they stay the same so you can see them by changing the rest of the cubes by tilting the watch. Sounds hard but it is simple.
