The latest creation of future watch is a design submitted to Tokyflash by Peter Fletcher from the UK, and the watch combines both LCD (or LED) with a mechanical analogue watch movement, as you can see in the photos below.
The time telling method is very simple, the arrow shaped hand has 12 LCD (or LED) blocks representing the hours. This hand is part of a disc which rotates powered by the mechanical movement to point towards the minutes. Around the outside of the disc is a ring of LCD (or LED)blocks that represent the seconds, this gives the watch some animation.
This design is just a concept for now, but we think that this one could end up going into production, you can find out more details over at Tokyflash.
