Bell Sports Gyro Watch: 2005 – Tres Design
This was the third and final plaster model conversion project we did for Bell sports. Unless you are doing something ergonomically unique and have a strong understanding of the components and construction of small consumer electronics, starting with a physical model in watch design is absolutely the wrong way to begin. Once we had created a digital facsimile, they realized how absurdly proportioned the original was and were allowed to tweak it into a much more pleasing version. We were able to slim it down and contour it much closer to the wrist, and with all projects you do multiple times, every iteration gets a little bit easier.
