Watch design is becoming an increasingly popular area for product designers as a result many unique, innovative and futuristic watch designs are being created by designers today. In this category you will find news and information about some of them.

With many modern gadgets featuring time telling functions, the death of the wristwatch is sometimes speculated. However as these watch designs show there is still plenty of life left, and the use of 3D software allows designers to create some really stunning images as well as video representations of their work.

“The future of watch design is made more exciting by the continual emergence of new colors, materials and finishes, which bring new creative opportunities. New technology, too brings challenge. “All futurists agree that the wrist is prime real estate for wearable technology.”- Scott Wilson
