A Watch for Lovers

A Watch for Lovers

This thoughtful 3d-printed timepiece by Daniel Kamp was designed to remind the wearer of their partner, family member, or friend. Appropriately named the Other-Half Watch, it features a secondary face meant to be set to a significant other’s unique timezone. This hidden face is located on the inner part of the wristband, keeping loved ones close even when they’re geographically far away.

Cryptic Time-Telling

Cryptic Time-Telling

This design is for all you decrypting puzzle lovers out there. The Hexagons LED watch uses neon tube-like hexagons to form an esoteric message that displays the time. Hours are shown in green and the minutes are in cyan, and the wearer can also choose between 5 different difficulty settings. Designer Samuel Jerichow says it’s ideal for the “geek within” but even though I might not be able to tell the time, but I’d still rock it. This of course, gets the Tron stamp of approval.

The Is That a Watch? Watch

The “Is That a Watch?” Watch

Gotta love this minimal design by Samuel Jerichow! The Dot watch is made of a single flexible strap covered with a stretchable, retractable PVC-based sheet. The center mechanism consists of three cylinders- one “on” indicator dot that is permanently visible as it presses up against the sheet, and two hour and minute indicators that magically appear when the center dot is pressed. After 5 seconds the dots disappear again. A simple and futuristic looking timepiece with a playful analog charm.

Tima Watch Gets Sporty

Tima Watch Gets Sporty

Tima was original concept by designer Julien Bergignat, but now it’s back with a sporty overhaul. Features include digital and analog display options that work simultaneously. The wide face and integrated apps make it easy to access almost any social mediums right from the screen. This e-paper watch is the ultimate social sports tracker! Not half bad looking either.

Wind Energy Watch

Wind Energy Watch

This interactive watch by Julien Moise uses the wearer’s own renewable wind energy to power it’s icy blue display.  To read the time the user simply blows on the propeller mechanism to generate just enough electricity to activate a short visual sequence. You might get some strange looks blowing on your wrist, but this watch’s cool minimal style totally makes up for it.

Time in a Bangle

Time in a Bangle

Leaves is a concept watch inspired by women’s fashion. Look closely and you’ll see the shape of two leaves, hence the name. One leaf indicates hour while the other – minutes. Other than that, there’s nothing revolutionary about the concept but it seems to be a nice balance between fashion and tech gadgetry which is actually rare in women’s accessories. Kudos Andy Kurovets.

Prophecy

Prophecy

Jerome Olivet is a man who loves his curved surfaces so when it came time to design a watch that properly suggested his design ethos, the Prophecy was born. Futuristic, organic, maybe even a little elitist, the Prophecy’s design is a continuous movement expressed by the tense curves of its surfaces. It feels fluidic and quite original. A polarizing design but I like it.
