Wrist watches have always been a luxurious item to purchase. Apart from serving its purpose, it adds up to the style and personality of a person. Owing to the recent trend, a Portugal based industrial designer Nuno Teixeira has developed a watch spectacularly built to enhance the looks and designs of wrist watches to the next era, called Equinox. If price doesn’t matter for you then this would be the best ever watch you could have. It represents the exact time when the sun is positioned directly over the equator. Its spherical displays give it a very elegant look.
KAARI is the latest creation of watch designer, Löytö Esineiden that features half face display with 24h analogue mechanism. The face of the watch features 2 arc shaped die cuts where you can read the hours and minutes. The small arc indicates the hour, it rotates 360-degree in 24 hours. The hour is actually shown by a disc in its full shape but divided in 2 equal segments with different colors (black and white) to indicate AM/PM.
The minutes are indicated by the upper arc, there’s a minute hand that moves to indicate 0-30 minutes interval. This design might remind you of Koko Muo watch, the difference lies in the material and mechanism which is more optimize but with less production cost. This watch design has won a Silver A’Design Awards 2014 in a Jewerly, Eyewear and Watch design category.

The inner ring represents the hours, as you can see the gap in the ring shows the current hour as on a clock face. The ring of large blocks informs you about the minutes the same way as the hours, using the gap in the ring. The outer ring of small dots represents exact minutes, every fifth dot being slightly smaller to distinguish five minute groups. Just look where the gaps are. [Buy TokyoFlash Kisai Rogue SR2 $179]
