Ziiiro Aurora & Orbit Watches: It’s Color-Mixing Time!
April 19th, 2011
Watch brand Ziiiro has come up with two new watches use an analog mechanism to display time in a visually-striking way. This time around, we have the Aurora and the Orbit. Of the two, the Aurora looks most interesting since it mixes two colors to show the time.
On the Aurora, the hour indicator uses a blue gradient, from 100% to 0% while the minute indicator uses a yellow gradient. The overlapping layers create a color mix that changes throughout the day. Unlike some of the more complex modern watches you can get from Tokyoflash, Ziiiro’s watch will allow you to intuitively learn a new way of telling time, just by looking at the resulting color mix.
The Orbit was inspired by space and the solar system, simply using a red planet to indicate hours, and a white one to indicate minutes.
You can pre-order them watches online over at Ziiiro for €129 ($184 USD).
