My fiance stumbled upon these yesterday and I loved them so much I had to share. The links below take you to the original sites. Basically these are watches that use LEDs to tell time without numbers (for the most part). Most of them have a "ring" for the hour, minute in groups, and minute in singles. Some have "rings" to tell the dates as well.
This is the Kiasi RPM LED watch. I love this one the most, as it has a traditional look mixed with a 21st century feel. You can get this one in black or silver, with green or blue LEDs. The rings are actually really easy to figure out. The inner ring is the hour, the outer is minutes in groups of five, and the very top is single minutes. The only problem I see with the design is that the lights only show when you press the button, so you can't just glance down and get the time. That, and its kind of a manly watch...LOL. I have very small wrists and have a hard time finding a watch that doesn't swallow my wrist whole. This one would definitely be too big! Click Here to read the full article (with video).
This is my second favorite of the group. It is the S-mode Oberon LED watch. This one is more traditional, with the solid face. It comes in silver and blue LEDs. I like this one because it has a date function, just by pressing the button twice it gives you a date. It's a little different to read though, which may cause me some confusion. For time the outer ring tells the hour, the innermost ring tells groups of minutes in 10s, and the middle ring tells single minutes. For the date, the outer ring tells the month, the innermost ring tells days in groups of 10s, and the middle ring tells single days. I like the outward spiral on this one a lot. Again I run into the size issue, but its still a pretty cool watch. Click Here to read the full article (with video).
This one I can't even begin to understand. Click Here to try your luck (with video). There are quite a few more on the site that are pretty interesting, and some that are so complicated (like this one) that it makes time reading feel like a job.
Check them all out! Tell me what you think. Do you have any cool watch concept ideas?
