The inspiration for this concept comes from oscilloscopes. I like the imagination of having something scientific on my wrist.
The display shows a green x- and y-axis on a black background. Once a button is pressed, a green, slightly horizontally moving graph shows up. It’s mostly a sine curve. Its number of maximums on the screen indicates the current hour, 1 – 12.
The maximum function value (the projection of the upper apexes on the positive y-axis) indicates the current ten minute increment, 0 – 50.
The minimum function value (the projection of the lower apexes on the negative y-axis) indicate the additional minutes, 0 – 9.
If it’s currently a full hour and there wouldn’t be a function value of an apex on the y-axis, the time is told by tangent graphs. Their amount tells the hour. When the button is pressed twice, the date is shown in the same manner (hours -> months, minutes -> days). Below the activating button is a little navigation stick. Left/right influences the horizontal movement speed of the graph. If a spectacular effect is wished, it can be set fast. If the time needs to be read, it should be slow or not moving at all. With some practice, a moving graph can be read. Moving the stick up and down controls the brightness of the display. After ten seconds of leaving the stick alone, the display deactivates. A quick deactivation can be enforced by pressing the upper button again. An animation option can be chosen which makes the watch oscillate randomly. Holding the button for 5 seconds activated setting mode which requires the navigation stick.
