This concept LCD watch design is called “Scigns” due to the strange, alien-like hieroglyphs used in the display.
Figuring out the time or date on this watch is pretty easy. It just looks weird at first. The structure of each sign in the display is created around an imaginary 3 by 3 square array of spots. Each sign, however, has only 1 or no spots showing. Each spot represents a digit between 1 and 9. A sign without a spot represents 0. The signs themselves don’t actually represent anything, but simply provide a framework enabling you to see the position of the spots and so determine their values. Consequently, any sign can be used to represent any digit. Please see the images below.
This watch is USB rechargeable via a computer. Its case and strap are made from stainless steel and are available in silver or black. The display is “always on” and is available in 4 colours: green, blue, pink and purple. It has an alarm and an EL backlight to illuminate the display in the dark.
I feel this design would appeal to anyone who likes sci-fi and quirky modern things.
This design stands out because of its unique, futuristic display which is also deceptively easy to read.
