There are a ton of watches with extremely cool designs, but I doubt you’ll find one that resembles the Turbine LCD watch. It’s not really hard to figure out where the concept or inspiration for the watch was derived: turbines, of course.
The watch doesn’t really have a turbine that’s perpetually turning though. Instead, it’s been fitted with LED lights that blink and light up to give the illusion that there’s an actual turbine on it. Sounds pretty amazing, right?
Since it’s primarily a watch design, of course you’d be curious as to how you can read the time off of the watch. Designer Peter from the UK explains:
When the Knob is pressed briefly the time scrolls across the top of the display and would stay on for 10-15 sec’s. When the knob is double pressed the time and backlight are activated. When the knob is pressed and held just the backlight is activated for illuminated animation.
The Turbine LCD watch is a fun concept with a lot of possibilities and variations. It can be fitted with themed watch casings and straps to suit your taste and preferences. For example, there’s a NASA-themed watch and a one that’s got the UK flag all over the watch.
