Retro Pixelated Timepieces
The 'Pixel Clock' Replaces Clock Hands with Pixels

By: Alexander Lam (Star) Jun 28, 13

Bringing watch faces to their simplest form, designers Maxim Mezentsev and Aleksander Suhih created the ‘Pixel Clock.’ The sleek wristwatch blends digital and analog features in a retro fashion. Using magnified blocks, the Pixel Clock shows you the time. As time marches forward, the watch’s digital pixels shift along a faintly checkered background.

In order to keep the watch as simple as possible, Mezentsev and Suhih kept the time-keeping system extremely minimalist. A pixel moves along the watch’s outer ring to indicate minutes while a pixel in an inner ring indicates hours. The virtual blocks move just like regular clock hands would. In the center, a solitary block blinks along with the seconds. To encapsulate the pixels, the watch itself was molded into a black square.
