Not that anyone really needs a watch any more, all our phones tell the time remember, they can still be neato ‘jewellery’. So if we take that approach, then the sexier the watch the better. Not sure how much a piece of machinery like this from Urwek would cost – but it should set you back a couple of bags o’ gold for sure.
I love the way each ‘hand’ comes around to the minutes section rotating to reveal the right hour. It is kinetically powered rather than solar like the Citizen ones, I guess that is more in keeping with the machine aesthetic anyhow. It wouldnt be a dynamic watch to actually at normal time – but check out the video to see all the fun in some pretty slick CG to boot.
