‘new times’ by yael kristal and uriel zohar

‘new times’ by yael kristal and uriel zohar from israel has been shortlisted in designboom’s international design time BREIL competition. their design re-examines the archetypal watch, offering a new method for telling time whereby the command hands indicating hours, minutes and seconds are replaced by three concentric dials. these disks rotate clockwise with time determined by the indicator.

  • Nice design. The “60” would be better as a “0”.

  • Yes, nice design indeed. But hard to read.
    E.g. how do I read off the seconds at the innermost ring? Pointing downwards is 0/60? That would be rather confusing.

  • I quite like the cleanness of it, but I mean its just confusing and annoying to work out what time it actually is??
    Example of re-inventing the wheel…
