If you've seen any of Peter Fletcher's chronograph designs before, you won't be surprised by the complicated look of the Trylon Watch. Made as a concept for Tokyoflash, this timepiece experiments with a new way to represent the hour.

Everything about the precise time of day is displayed on the Y-shaped face with illuminated dashes. The branch with 12 markings indicates the hour, the section with five dashes tells you of the 10-minute block and the part with nine marks lights up to inform you of the exact 60-second interval. The Trylon Watch is actually a great deal easier to decipher than some of the designer's other complicated chronometers.

For you Sci-Fi fans out there, you might appreciate that inspiration for this wristwatch came from the DeLorean's Flux Capacitor and from the Battlestar Galactica Cylons.
