Seoul-based designer Jiwoong Jung has recently put forward a beautiful new minimalist watch concept that uses a color gradient to indicate time. Entitled “Hidden Time”, Jung proposes to replace the hour hand with a sweeping color gradient that will reveal time as the gradient circles the clock dial. The hour marks are printed on the watch glass and as the gradient goes around, only the current time and the time in its vicinity is visible.
Simple. Classy. Unique.
Check out how the concept watch works from the video below:
Is it just us, or are you guys also hoping that this will be an actual watch we can purchase in the future?
With a BA in Industrial design from the Seoul National University of Science and Technology, Jung has also created a bunch of other items, ranging from coffee tables to shelves to lighting fixtures, which you can check out here!
