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”.

Labyrinth watch uses cryptic maze to tell the time, surprisingly easy!

Design submitted by Andy from the Ukraine.

Andy says: I decided to realise a watch concept based on the ancient greek myth of the minotaur and the labyrinth. I used 6 cross-sectioned rectangles to display time.

Skyline LED watch impossibly tunnels through your wrist (update)

Design submitted by Anders from Sweden.

Anders says: I was on the tram about six months ago when I caught sight of a concrete buttress of some sort, which was shaped like a number of intersecting blocks. It was an interesting shape that I thought might make an interesting watch face, so I sketched out a few ideas. None of them worked, however, but I kept coming back to it.

Grid watch generates a triangular mesh of time.

Design submitted by Justin from the UK.

Justin says: As usual I doodle the numbers first, then simply mould the rest of the watch around them. I always set out with a specific technology in mind, E-paper, LCD, analogue…

This time I chose LED…I created…GRID!

Sandwatch is never the same twice.

Design submitted by Chingiz from Kyrgyzstan.

Chingiz says: I sat by the river and thought why modern watches don’t tell the true time. Because all known classic and digital watches repeat everyday. But we consume our lives/time/ like water, fuel or cigarettes and we must see it being exhausted constantly.

Oscilloscope watch tells time with waves.

Design submitted by Rodrigo from Portugal.

Rodrigo says: Im a Electronic Engineer,and i came up with this idea after using an digital oscilloscope.

You can tell the time by tracking the evolution of the wave signals and combining the 3 waves you can tell the time.

The people I see using my design, are all those who love sci-fi and technology.

It is easy to see the time, and its simplicity will pull the imagination of each of us.
