[Draft] EyeKon - A slightly different vision in design

Hi everyone. I created a face a few years ago in a style that has fascinated me for some time. I never liked my original design for many reasons, so I revisited the concept with a new frame of mind. It must be simple, unique and easy to read. Now, I know many conventional watch lovers might find it a bit difficult to read the time at first, but after a few tries it feels very comfortable to my in-house “test subjects.” Also known as family. So, I’m looking for some new eyes to tell me if I did my job or not. I will probably publish in the next day or so, pending any technical issues.

The inner dial is the hour and the outer dial is the minutes/seconds. Inset number is today’s date and the battery level underneath that. The hour dial rotates with the minutes of the hour.

Thanks!

Thanks for the feedback. I get it, it’s a preference thing.

You’ve given me an idea on a sort of twist here. I really don’t care much for analog/digital blends that show the time in both analog and digital. In this instance, it would negate all the work I did to make this readable. But, now I have a new idea thanks to you!

I like a Hybrid as the Bus time Table is in 24 hrs.But I admire the work you guys are doing for this and the next generation. I know tge traditional style of Watch Face is going by the Board even Mechanical Watches. Very few know what goes in to getting that face to work. Good job.

You have given me an idea of how to make a hybrid without it being truly redundant in a direct way. Yeah, that’s a mouthful, lol.

Yeah. Always easier just to make something than talk about it. I have always struggeled to make manuals for things.

This looks nice. It wasn’t that hard to read, so that’s good. Have you tried a version where the hour is not moving smooth, but jumps (#DWFK# instead of #DWFKS#)? See which one reads easier.

I tried both. I prefer the smooth. The #DWFK# reads a little easier but it looks like it is “stuck” to the hour dial. Feels a bit odd to me. I will let you decide.

I think the first one looks cooler, but the 2nd one is better readable, especially in the last quarter

Thanks. I want it to be more easily read. Nice to have extra eyes.
