Centrifuge watch accelerates LED’s into time vectors

Design submitted by Justin from the UK.

Justin says: I was doing the usual search on the internet for inspiration, logos, weird shapes or scientific influences and I saw the Cern logo (The LHC or Large Hadron Collider) and I was intrigued by the swirl effect and how lines ran off of it. That simple shape gave the impression of movement and velocity…thus, Centrifuge was born.

Asymmetric LED watch is a cryptic fusion of analogue & digital (update)

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I wanted to come up with a simple LED watch that could display digits using as few LEDs as possible. I wanted the design to have a detailed industrial look, which would suit various finishes, materials and colours. I then decided with a couple of tweaks that a second time telling method was also possible.

Web watch spins up some LED time telling

Design submitted by Gabriel from Romania.

Gabriel says: I do not have a particular inspiration for this concept but as the clock display resembles a spider web, I thought to name it “web”. The watch has 60 segments that light up and in center a digital numeric display.

Eclipse e-paper watch silhouettes the time

Design submitted by Patrick from France.

Patrick says: I tried to draw a different watch that is like no other, at least I hope? The dial of the watch “Eclipse-Watch” is the sun and the moon is black pellet.

The “Eclipse-Watch” is a watch e-paper.

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.

Feasibility was one of the stumbling blocks for that design. Since that design, I have a had a few thoughts on how to make a drivers watch with a similar look but much easier to make.

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

Design submitted by Clement from Singapore.

Clement says: I have been looking at watches with eink screens but i have not seen any pretty ones yet. Eink screens consume little power and should last long if used in a normal watch.(Current smartwatches have too many functions that consume power). Hence i’ll try my hand at designing a watch that suits my fancy. I also realized that ring-watches are quite cool but not many people wear them.
