It's about time
Did you ever realize? Someone asks you the time, you look at your wrist and answer. But the answer you give is never precisely what you see. It's always "five o'clock", or "a bit past five". Unless you're German or otherwise anally focused, of course.
Design company Talus have finally come up with a watch design that tells you the time exactly like you tell others. This is a really cool idea.
Of course, given the current comeback of mechanical timepieces, a version powered by a mechanical high-end movement would be even cooler. IWC, Ulysse Nardin, where are you?
UPDATE: For our more anal readers, not to worry: by clicking the crown the watch toggles between 'about time' and exact time, showing hours, minutes and seconds (Thanks Norman for pointing out the omission.)
