Geometrix Watch Concept: Time for Lines

by Paul Strauss

Here’s a cool concept for a modern watch, which would tell time using just a few simple lines. The Geometrix watch was designed by Vladislav Novikov-Barkovsky of Red Richman Creative Studio. At its most basic, the Geometrix uses a single line to connect the dots between the current hour and its minutes.

The top dots indicate hours, while the bottom dots are minutes. Simple enough, right? But when you get to the fringes of the watch face, something interesting happens. When it’s exactly the top of the hour, both the “00” and “60” markers illuminate, creating two sides of a triangle.

And when it’s exactly 12:00 (or 24:00), all four corners light up, forming a bow-tie shape. While this additional display doesn’t really add anything to the readability of the display, it does make it just that much more interesting to look at. I particularly like how the design incorporates a conventional digital display for date and time too – I think more unconventional watch faces should do that more often.

Make sense? You can check out an animated version of the watch face here if you’re confused.

While the Geometrix watch is only a concept at this point, it seems simple like the design would be simple enough to execute (are you listening Tokyoflash?) If nothing else, its creator should consider making an iPhone or Android app version.
