'About Time' Watch Faces

March 15, 2017

We have been looking at time the same way for eons. Let these five unorthodox watch faces reframe the flat circle.

We concepted, designed and developed a package of five watch faces called “About Time” which use humor to affect your perception of time throughout the day. After creating a series of faces for the launch of Android’s wearable line as well as developing Nixon’s Mission watch and companion app we felt compelled to create our own take on the smart watch.

Yolo

A reminder that our time is precious, so live it to the fullest. The Y acts as a traditional analog watch face, and throughout the day will align to spell YOLO.

High-Five

Sometimes, we need some encouragement throughout the day. High-Five personifies the hands of a watch, to literal hands. Every time two hands pass each other, they greet each other with an epic high-five.

Spin

Time never starts or ends, but is continuously progressing and cycling. This watch face does not tell time in relation to our days, but acts as a reminder of how infinite time actually is.

Buffer

Buffer displays a 24 hour clock that actively buffers the future, allowing you to stream through your day.

Minutes to Midnight

When exactly is the end of the world? Based off The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists' Doomsday Clock, Minutes to Midnight displays the doomsday clock which is counting down to possible global catastrophe. The closer we are to midnight, the closer the world is to the end. The time fluctuates closer and further away from midnight, depending on current events in the world.
