ViLIGHT watch design was inspired by the eye

1

This is a modern watch design inspired by the eye. ViLIGHT is a concept watch based on vision and light.

2

There are three semi-transparent rotating discs that represent the hours, minutes and seconds. In a bright environment, natural light can pass through the rotating discs to show the time. This watch has been designed with led light to glow from inside the core to the back panel while in the dark. It seems that adding lights on analog watch can also be elegant.

A watch to share time with others

12

Normal wrist watch is worn so that the numbers are visible at the front when arm is folded toward the trunk of body. However, if through a slight change of turning the display board 90 degree, the intrinsic meaning of the watch changes. The information of time that I read is the same as those of others just as they are mine. The subject of sharing is elevated from physical dimension to behavioral dimension.

22

Such a small change of idea enabled sharing of time with others nearby or others standing opposite site. Through this sharing in this unfamiliar change, we can newly experience the relationship with others by way of time, and that is how Maezm wanted this watch to serve.

The rubber strap does not have a fastener but instead wraps around the wearer’s wrist. It can be made tighter or looser by bending the strap’s stainless steel core.

Without typical hands or markings, the Gravity watch uses two rings that resemble rotating comets to indicate the time.

32

The main theme is minimalism, so there are no distracting elements in the design, and after a short time you will acquire a feel for reading the time.

Light gap energy efficient clock

19This energy efficient clock uses light and a single gap on its surface to tell you the time. That’s why it’s called “Light Gap”. Light Gap is a simple clock that has nothing but a gap on its surface. You need to place it near glass window in order for this clock to draw solar energy from the sun. This energy powers its rotation.

211

During the day, you can tell the time from the sunlight filtered through the gap. At night, this clock’s gap will illuminate the hour hand with its LED lights powered by the energy stored during the day. This clock has been designed to be able to sense the strength of the light in its environment; therefore, the LEDs will illuminate gradually to make sure you can always see the light which tells the time.
