2nd Runner-up - Student Group

In busy Hong Kong, communication between parents and children is often weak. Watches can launch positive father-son relations. The idea is to use function, pattern, material and image to show such a relationship. Inserted sim-cards trigger a bright light when two watches are set to the same mode. The stone pattern depicts manly strength.
