This concept watch design is called “Shadows” and is based on a puzzle idea I had some years ago. The display may look cryptic at first, but is actually very easy to read once you know the trick behind it. Shadows has both a time and date mode. Each strange looking figure in the display is a digit shown with its shadow in the same colour. There is an explanatory diagram below.
This watch is USB rechargeable via a computer and the strap is made from a man-made material that is animal friendly. The watch comes with a choice of several different coloured straps and the display is available in different colours too. I feel this design would appeal to puzzle, game and sci-fi lovers in particular. It would also suit geeks and anyone who likes quirky modern things, creativity, lateral thinking and thinking “outside the box”. This design stands out because of its unique and original cryptic display which is also modern-looking and very simple to read.
