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.

Design submitted by Sam from Germany & Peter from the UK.

Type-X watch makes its mark on your wrist

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: This is “Kisai Type-X” a back to basics 12-5-9 design.

I didn’t have a particular inspiration in mind when I decided on an “X” shaped LCD display, but in retro-spec I wonder if  I was subconsiously influnced by the “microsoft x-box” logo or the drones in the “Oblivion” film.

Design submitted by Wilhelm from South Africa.

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.
