This idea came while I was working on another design (the AD 1224). It’s a combination of an analog hour display with digitally displayed minutes and second (or month and day ).I’ve put the icons over and under them to encapsulate all the info, except the hour, in a circle in the middle.
I’ve stuck with a “sliced pie” shape to get a round display. For the hour, there are some segments of the analog display that light up. It’s a standard one, which start at 1 o’clock and go clockwise. For the minute/second and month/day, I’ve used 4 digits, just like a conventional digital watch, placed in the middle.
Over the minute and second, there are 3 icons : A sun between 2 arrows. One arrow goes up and the other goes down. They are used to indicate am/pm. ( sun go up = am : sun go down = pm ). The sun is always on + 1 arrow. Under the minute and second, there is 2 icons : A circle with three waves, on the left, to show that the alarm is on and a capital d, on the right, that light up when you select to show the date.
This model has 4 buttons, 2 on each side. For the commands order, you can check the diagram picture. The user can choose between 4 displays modes and between many colors and positive or negative display. This one will appeal to people who are looking for a distinctive analog watch. The user can choose between several choices of display, depending on his taste or cloth.
