I was sketching for a simple way to deform the classic seven-segment-LED-digits and came up with the idea to just let the horizontal segments take a step aside. The result is a confusing bunch of lines. To celebrate this confusion, I wanted to emphasise the horizontal and vertical lines with according geometry, pretending, the segments are meant to be there. I own a 12-5-9 L and it’s my favourite Tokyoflash watch. The geometry of the IIE is inspired by that watch.
This is a watch for people who like edges and segments, angles and gaps and a confusing but cool looking display that isn’t too hard to be learned.
