I was looking at designs on Tokyoflash website and thinking that many of them are based on “codes” of some sort. Then I hit upon the idea of colour codes.Three concentric circles show hours/ month and minutes/ day. The three circles are colour-coded to represent the numbers from 1 – 12. After looking at the colour-code chart and a few example watch faces, it’s easy to see how to tell the time. The watch is also colour-blind friendly.
This design has sophistication and practicality, as well as beauty. The colourful design makes it stand apart. The code is partially derived from “ROYGBIV” to make learning easy. The show time/ date function is a useful “cheat” feature, and makes it accessible to colour blind people and learners.
