Make Your Time

I just hate to make the title of the post so similar to the title of the design it’s about, but this is the internet, and it’s only my most sacred duty to continue one of our most essential moments in history: All Your Base Are Belong To Us. That said, look at this watch. It’s called “Lock Your Time.” It’s made as a metaphor for the perfect moment. One you wish you could lock down forever.

The lock portion of the watch is the hours, the outer rim is the minutes. Metal! Runs nice like a normal analog watch. Needs a battery though, this one doesn’t run on steam or magic.

Three different styles, all nice and clean.

    But in the middle and left watch, the dials are actually the opposite.

    I can’t see how to read the watch. The first one seems accurate… But I would read something like ’08:14 / 20:14′ on the second one and ’10:20 / 22:20′ on the third one

    What’s the code?

    • K says:

      It seems like he got it mixed up too
      Clearly he seems to read the dot as hour and lock as minutes !

      I have to agree with most, it’s too hard to read.

  • Michael says:

    It basically shows how dumb this design is. It looks pretty and unsual, but what’s the point if it doesn’t actually do what it’s supposed to do i.e. reliably display the time.

    If there’s confusion about the time being displayed, I’d say the watch is useless.

    I agree with you Bob, I think the middle one is showing something like 08:13 and the right hand one is showing about 10:20.

    For a watch do do its job properly, you should look at it and pretty quickly know what the time is.

    Form FOLLOWS function not the other way around,

    • Confucius says:

      Its a very strange design. I think the time you have stated Michael is correct. I think the 14:35 and 03:49 is incorrect.

  • GI says:

    First thought – wow

    Secont thought – how UTTERLY useless and NOT designed. Don’t call it a watch.

  • BG says:

    WOW, THIS IS AN AWSOME DESIGN. I like watches that are a conversation piece and this one fits the bill. I want one!

  • SD says:

    the render doesn’t impress me. where are the details?

  • Terry says:

    One of the design principles that ever industrial designer should apply before releasing any design into the wild is to ask himself/herself this:

    “Does it do the job it’s for?”

    Since so many people cant tell the time on these watches, you’d have to say the answer’s NO.

    Whether it’s pretty or clean or cluttered or a talking point is totally beside the point – it doesn’t do the job it’s for, because when you look at it you have to stare at it for ages, mentally add in the little check marks and count around the face to figure out what the time is.

    Having said that, they are beautiful, but no more useful than a lady’s bangle.

  • Brian Enigma says:

    As best as I can tell from the explained times and the callouts to hours and minutes, I think the labels for the hour and minute “hands” have been flip-flopped. Reading hours as minutes and minutes as hours, they match up to the three given times.

  • jp182 says:

    the watch looks cool. i’m hoping that the times in the jpegs are just wrong.

  • jackholexxxx says:

    the second two watches are upside down. thats why it seems the time is incorrect.

  • my says:

    lol! Funny how u kind of presist on rebel against such a simple thing as naming things for what they are 😛 We need more people like u 😉
    but have u ever considered that the title is named based on what there’s in the article that makes it interesting? wouldn’t ‘lock your time’, ‘perfect moment’ or ‘your moment in time’ be a more correct title? on the otherhand u weren’t going for corrrect or perfect but for YOUR title… I like it! 🙂 and the watches are cool! but u would have to look twice not to get it wrong (wich i normally do anyway)

  • Great article, well written.

    A part of the proceeds from the vacationers go into this.
    This kind of luxury is all about your individual requirements and dreams for
    the perfect winter break, and perhaps the little things you haven. These charters are
    strongly built keeping into mind safety of all those who will board the cruise,
    even the ones who take the trip as adventure.

    Blue water yachting offers a great range of Mediterranean yacht charter and this
    includes luxury yacht charter, and Super yacht charter.
    It can be a bit boring if all the time during your vacation you are cooped up in the yacht no matter how luxurious
    it is. The bedrock of the resort is its three PGA championship standard golf courses.
