Switch watch activated by brute force!

Design submitted by Patrick from France.

Patrick says: When I had presented my “Kuranku-Watch”, comments are deferred mainly on brittleness of crank (even if it activates only LEDs), thus for the “Switch-Watch”, the handle is much more “muscular”.

Saturn II : Planetary analogue watch

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: This is Saturn II, a re-design of my original Saturn concept. Saturn was one of my first concepts submitted to the blog. It never made it onto the blog presumably due to being a little adventurous from a technical perspective.

This version is a lot simpler than the original but still retains the original’s feel.

STEAM watch ideal for the Victorian time traveller.

Design submitted by Matt from Canada.

Matt says: This is STEAM, because of the steampunk appearance. The idea for the display came while watching a movie, specifically a short animation of one of the producing company at his beginning.

Steam-punk pocket watch is deceptively easy to read.

Design submitted by Anders from Sweden.

Anders says: I recently found this half-finished concept rattling about on my hard drive. I’d left it because I wasn’t sure if it was worth submitting, but when I found it there was a cry of ‘let the public decide’, so I finished it and here it is!

Kernkraft Steampunk Globe LED Watch

Design submitted by Anders from Sweden.

Anders says: I’ve tried to design it to sit somewhere between art deco, raygun gothic and steampunk.

It is a classic analog watch where the ‘pole’ of the globe indicates the hour, the thin end of the inner orbit marks the minute, and the outer orbit the seconds.  This ensures that the display is constantly moving at a noticeable speed, giving a more dynamic impression.
