Inspiration for this design was the "Watch of the Year" award winner Vacheron Constantin watch. (Patrimony Contemporaine retrograde day and date)
This spectacular 18K gold timepiece costs around $40000 (yes, with 4 zeroes) and I don't think Christmas sales will be of much help here.
So here is my affordable Vacheron concept:
In my opinion, this watch’s unique half-circle retrograde "day of the week" and "day of the month" indicators show that our weeks and months are "finite". There is an „end” of this week/month. So, it is a great motivator if you are into resolutions like „I’m gonna quit methamphetamine at the end of this month!” or „When this indicator hits 31, I will weigh 2 lbs less!”, „Until this Sunday, I will finish this book (or this relationship)”
The lower „text note” part of the watch can be conveniently configured for motivating slogans, calendar reminders, alerts or simply the name of this concept watch: Vacheron. If there is no text here, that means you lost the bluetooth connection! (Sweeeeet!)
The logo of Vacheron Constantin is a Maltese cross, which doubles, here, as a battery indicator and triples as an indicator of your loyalty to the order of the Knights Templar (Assassin’s Creed, anyone?)
If there are any programmers out there, who would like to bring this concept to life, I am ready to contribute with image editing part. Please feel free to use the following background 144x168px image files of this concept.
Let this week be a successful one for you and let this month be a fulfilling one for all of us!
