Cory says: While toying with an interesting take on an analog design, I thought of an interesting way to make use of E-ink technology. The RingSix was the result.
The circle in the middle of the display has a capsule shaped minute hand in classic analog time. The hours are displayed as segments of the background, one segment is equal to one hour, up to six. For times over six, an additional ring appears near the center as a +6 indicator. Even hours are displayed vertically, odd are displayed horizontally.
Tokyoflash fans who like analog designs may find this one appealing, as well as those who enjoy bracelet style watches that seamlessly transition from the watchband to the case.
The line which the links draw around the band continues partway through the case, and creates a nice asymmetrical feel to the aesthetics. The case mirrors the capsule shaped minute hand with similar elements in both the buttons, and the geometry where the band attaches.
