Fans of motor sports might be interested in checking out this concept watch by UK-based designer Peter, who has modeled the faces of the watches based on select GP (Grand Prix) race tracks, such as Suzuka and Silverstone, and uses the “position” of the cars on the track in order to tell the time.
As you might have already surmised from the photo above, the “red car” tells the time in hours, the “blue car” tells the minutes while the “green car” tells the seconds. The hours will be displayed in intervals of three, which means that you will get etched number at the 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions, and with the “green car” acting as the seconds hand, it would be pretty much a race around the “track” constantly which we guess could look quite cool or annoying, depending on how you look at it.
It’s quite an interesting watch/design and will probably appeal to GP fans out there, and much like Tokyo Flash watches/submitted designs, it’s pretty “out there” so it might not be the best accessory to wear on a daily basis. Either way if you’d like a slightly more details explanation behind the design and for more photos, pop on down to Tokyo Flash’s website where you will be able to rate, comment and possibly put this watch into production.
