“This time I liked to make an expressive watch based upon a pyramid. I was inspired by the theory, that the big pyramid in Giza (also: Gize, Gizeh) or mayan pyramids were build by aliens. The pyramids influence architecture in sci-fi movies so why not a watch? This I thought a futuristic alien pyramid watch would be cool.
The time reading works pretty earthly (the aliens brought it to us actually). The red LEDs point at the hours, like a traditional analog watch would do. The blue watch hands point at the 5 minute steps (5,10,15,20 etc.) Four additional green LEDs on the pyramid edges are the 4 extra minutes.
The alternative monochrome display is a bit harder to read but looks more stylish. You can distinguish hours from 5 minute steps by looking at how they are bent. Clockwise bent watch LEDs are hours, counterclockwise bent LEDs are 5 minute steps. The edge LEDs remain extra minutes.
This is a watch for aliens among us, conspiracy theorists, sci-fi fans, and people who like to wear expressive accessory.”
