Untrod: Watch Designs

Untrod is a project which collaborates with international designers on various project themes -the first theme is ‘watch’. Designers have been asked to investigate the possibility of bringing new meanings to the conventional form of a watch. Most of these are the initial design concepts.

madokadoke by ross mcbride – a timepiece which exists without the utilitarian presence of a wrist watch.
the bracelet style design camouflages the buttons into the surface of the watch, with digits only apparent when they need to be.

ororon by fumie shibata – the strap of this watch has the face on one end and a loop on the other.
the loop is pulled over the face of the timepiece simply fastening it into place.

skew by ross mcbride allows you to adjust your watch’s digital display to your ideal viewing angle.

this analog alarm watch called analarm by industrial facility takes its starting point from the alarm clock image.
here, sound is replaced by vibration (through the use of a small motor), which indicates that the alarm
is activated. simply by moving the hand to the desired time and lifting the alarm button,
the watch can be set and used for daily alerts.

shin azumi has designed a solar powered watch name sol which instead of disguising the solar cell technology, he has made it a design feature, visible on the face of the watch.

duo by ross mcbride – the date display mechanism within the crown along with the buttons which normally protrude abruptly from a watch case, are concealed under a silicon flap.
