April 7, 2009 While we've seen our share of obscure and unusual watch designs, we're always on the lookout for the next innovation that might catch on in the world of wrist worn timepieces. This example may not prove to be the next Swatch, but the customizable OLED "UNI watch" concept by Takemura Ori definitely caught our eye.
The design has a soft black plastic casing and a customizable face which can be changed from analog to digital. The display can show the minutes and seconds in two small circles, or the numbers can be set to spiral inwards to the center of the watch and disappear.

The UNI watch can be connected to a computer via a USB port so that the display, including font and color can be changed. The design concept also incorporates an in-built accelerometer which turns on the OLED display when the wrist is turned.
