A Different Look at Time

Isn’t this amazing? This is a Ressence watch, their TYPE 1² Squared.(external link)

The indicators or complications are disks that revolve and are always in motion, just as the hands of a conventional watch are always revolving. The orange tinged indicator is the power reserve dial, showing how much time this mechanical watch has left before winding down.

This watch is in the $20,000 range, never-the-less, we can always enjoy amazing industrial design simply by looking at it.

This is a speeded up look at the watch, in real-time videos the watch is far less playful. Still, I get the idea and I like it. Ressence makes other fascinating models.

This might be what an alien or a supercomputer might produce, when tasked to design a timepiece without giving it any images of existing watches.
