This is “Drone“. I wanted to come up with a new watch using elements of Turbine, I thought what could be better than one Turbine? four Turbines was my answer.
This version is inspired by quadcopter drones, a popular gadget lovers RC toy. This theme combined with the animation of Turbine and the time telling format of Hunter Time Killer gives the result you see in the images.
The time is told by the four Turbines, each Turbine shows one part of the time in an analogue format. The top two Turbines display the hours and the bottom two the minutes. The four displays could be either backlit LCD of LED in the same manner as the LCD version of Turbine.
This display format allows for engine spinning animations and time telling animations.
This design may appeal to the same people who liked Turbine and Hunter Time Killer, those who like sci-fi films, gadgets and big boys toys.
This design stands out due to its striking look, funky animations and novel inspiration. The design could be either LCD or LED so therefore is viable from a manufacturing perspective.
