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.

ZION e-paper watch is a colourful take on the digital time.

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: This is a parallel development of a more feasible version of the ITO idea next to the ITO•E. I called this version ZION.

ZION uses colored segmented e-paper to display sharp numbers, aligning them vertically. The number style is reflected in the watch geometry – some sharp angles here and there, some small decent details, and looking generally simple.

ITO•E watch draws the time with a continuous line. (update)

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: Since my first ITO design (my second blog entry) I thought about alternatives, especially when it comes to feasibility.

Adapted to what’s possible today, the ITO•E uses a color filmed segmented epaper display embedded in a structured silicone unibody.

QUATTROGRID forms cryptic time modes using luminous lines. (update)

Design submitted by Wilhelm from South Africa.

Wilhelm says: The idea for this watch module came from the square metal grids used in the building industry, combined with 2 methods for reading time, the normal digital “grid” mode for easy time telling and the “quattro” binary method for reading digital time, hence the name “Quattrogrid”.
