The age of wrist watches dawned after the First World War but until then it was all about pocket watches. Even with respect to men’s fashion pocket watch considered a part of their clothing for wristwatches were considered feminine and unmanly. But today’s scenario speaks otherwise. Watches strapped around your wrist sometimes speak more than you would actually want to convey to people.
With designer Eriz Lanuza touching new tech possibilities with a pocket watch, the world would probably come to know that there is a place other than steampunk, where pocket clocks will pick up some ground. Hailed as “Dial”, the crisp renderings of the conceptual pocket watch speak for itself. Since our cell phones have taken up the baton of being our personal assistant, this concept is imbibing the same selling points of smart phone. To start with, the Dial shows a number of alerts when in stand-by or “watch” mode. These include network coverage, missed calls, unread text message, Bluetooth and other standard ones.
Once the screen is activated, it would pull up the functions menu just like your mobile phone.
The touch-sensitive keyboard is arranged around its circumference and has the “touch” pen chained to one of its ends.
In its attempt to become a smarter alternative to any conventional phone, the pocket watch also sports a camera behind and a standard audio jack on the top.
The concept of hi-tech Dial Pocket Watch hatched from the study on portable technology. Given the fact that technology is galloping to shrink size of every gadget around and at the same time maintain standards of innovation, this concept could be a real gadget in near future.
