Eye of the Storm Watch : Designed by Yiran Qian
Designed by Chinese-born, German-based product designer Yiran Qian, you’re looking at the “Eye of the Storm” watch. The avant-garde timepiece rests on the wrist in all-black and only displays the time when required. Once the user presses the discreet button on the side, the watch displays two different sized lights, indicating an hour and a minute hand, which in turn illustrates the time in analogue format. Not only is the watch efficient on the display it has, the wearer has a choice in using the center of the piece as an open space, instead of filling it with materials that some people are reportedly sensitive to. The “Eye of the Storm” is still just a concept design, with no production being done as of yet.
