Proving that the wristwatch has evolved from being a purely functional accessory to being a statement of one’s style and attitude, design student Nicolas Lehotzky has created three spectacularly bizarre prototype timepieces that reflect the youth trend, brand and product value of the timepiece. The Caterpillar watch draws on the bulldozer track and interprets it as a faceless watch with a fabric belt with the hour numbers on it that slowly rotate around the entire wrist and show the current hour on a raised platform.
The SRAM watch on the other hand, is built from components that mimic the brand's bicycle parts complete with a fixed block that represents the chain that slowly turns a chain ring inside a fixed ring. In this watch, the time is indicated by numbering on the chain ring.
Lastly the Brembo watch features a band made of molded rubber in the shape of a performance car tyre, with the time being indicated through numbers on an aluminium ventilated brake disc that's driven from within a unit shaped to represent a Brembo brake caliper.
Now that’s way too literal for me and even though I’m not sure how comfortable the wearers will be putting on timepieces with such extreme designs, something tells me these bizarre pieces might just be hottest youth accessories in the times to come!
