Abacus Magnetic Watches Are a Minimal Delight

by Paul Strauss

Remember those puzzles that had tiny steel balls that you had to try to get into little holes? Here’s a series of watches out of Germany that remind me of those favorites from my childhood.

The Abacus series of watches has no hands at all. Instead, there’s just a single steel sphere that rolls around inside the watch as you move your wrist around. But as soon as you level out to a horizontal position, a magnet behind the dial stops the ball at the current time. Since there’s no second hand, you won’t be able to tell exactly what time it is, but who cares. You’ll look so cool wearing this watch, that nobody will care if you’re a few minutes late.

Each Abacus watch features a stainless steel case, with a leather strap and either mineral or sapphire glass face. They’re also water resistant to about 100 feet. You can find a wide variety of Abacus magnetic watches from QuestoDesign, ranging from about $150 to $230 depending on the style.
