Design Concept

With Time 65's design, we didn't just shrink the 80% version and call it a day. We made many significant changes while retaining the essence of the 80% style. The outer appearance has undergone a major transformation, shifting from a straightforward design to one with curves and contours, boldly blending curves with a cyberpunk aesthetic.

Previously, the top and bottom cases had a flat structure, with the slope integrated into the top case. However, this design sometimes led to hollow-sounding typing without foam and might not appeal to many female users due to its direct style. With Time 65, we've placed the slope on the bottom case, returning to the traditional slope design and added fluid curves to the sides. The challenge with this design was addressing the issue of the bottom case being thinner than the top, preventing the insertion of the dial. However, we cleverly resolved this issue, giving the overall appearance a more dynamic feel.

We've also made intricate changes to the dial, adding Roman numeral time scales, simulating the gears and screws found in mechanical watches, and replacing the previous heart-shaped hands with Omega-style sword hands. Additionally, we've added a second hand and a simulated chronograph dial above. While we'd love to perfect the Time design further, even considering creating a real watch, consultations with industry professionals have made us realize the immense challenge of creating a mechanical watch movement that is far beyond our capabilities. Therefore, to avoid regrets, we've focused on making the dial's interior design as realistic and detailed as possible, mimicking mechanical watches' overall structure and details where feasible.

Given Time's retro design style, we've opted not to use a gasket structure for the internal structure design but instead utilize a Top+Leaf spring structure. This decision aims to maintain the authentic feel of the keyboard while also addressing our fatigue with various gaskets and foams over the past two years. Similarly, we've removed the switch shims to differentiate our keyboard's sound and tactile feel from others.

Despite the streamlined design of Time 65's contours, the front bezel maintains a bold and distinctive style. We spent considerable time deliberating over the front design, realizing that neither the elegant and rounded design of the leaf nor the flat and thin design of Key65 suited Time. Ultimately, we chose a design with sharp edges and clear lines, which truly embodies the essence of Time. This choice reaffirms that the difference in design lies in the details; a chamfer or a millimeter's distance can drastically alter the overall style.
