Unisex watches seem to be ever-popular, with their attractive combination of sleekness and strength. It only seems fitting that more smart and digital watches come in a unisex style. It makes sense, then, that the Grid LED Watch by Patrick Weingartner appeals to this trend of androgyny in completion of its futuristic style.
Like any unisex watch found on trendy sites like Polyvore or Overstock, this design features slender curves and square, masculine shapes to create the perfect timepiece for any gender. The strap is adjustable to any wrist without being too loose or pinching.
But style is only its secondary point of interest; its main objective is to tell time in a creative way. Harkening to many boys’ and girls’ digital watches from decades ago, its material and shape remind you of classic Casio watches. Its simplistic face and time display, however, point more towards the bold but plain design of Movado digital watches.
Grid Watch is, obviously, constructed of a grid which tells time in little squares, and may at first seem confusing – but once you see the pattern it’s actually quite easy to read. The sections for the hour are located in the same place as an analog watch. The minutes are determined first by a bar made up of squares that each represent 10-minute segments, and secondly by reading the grid of squares in the center of the display that each portray 1-minute segments.
There are 2 buttons to the side of the watch, to change between the Time, Date, and Alarm buttons. Its LED “always on” display means you can easily read the time in any light, including bright sunlight.
