Illustrious Illumination: Incredible TRON-Inspired Watch

We’re likely to see the TRON-inspired products increasing like crazy over the next couple of months, and while we can’t say we mind, we do realize that some are more exciting than others. The Seven-R-Zero-N (7R0N, get it?) watch from designer Scott Galloway is one that we can actually get excited about. It’s not a licensed tie-in product, but it was definitely inspired by the style of both TRON movies.

The watch design is as enchanting as it is simple. There are two light rings designed to echo the appearance of an identity disc. The thinner outer circle indicates minutes and the thicker ring on the inside indicates hours. Cool LED lights on the sleek black band add even more excellent style to an already-fantastic creation.

Scott’s design was submitted to the TokyoFlash design competition, and we’re hoping it wins and goes into production – because nothing says mad geek cred like wearing a TRON-inspired watch or two.
