Storm Synth Watch has Nine Hands, Still Somehow Manages to Tell the Time

by Paul Strauss

You’ll have to rely on your keen powers of observation to figure out the current time on this new watch from Storm.


The limited-edition Storm Synth conceals the current time by taking standard hour hand, minute hand, second hand equation and multiplying it by three. The trick to reading the time on the Synth is to keep your eye on the hands that have the tiny pointers on their tips. All of the other hands are actually decoys.


At least if it’s gonna confuse the heck out of you, the Synth looks good while doing it. The watch features a substantial modern metal design and suspends the watch movement inside of an open “cage,” encased in crystals on all sides.


So if you’re ready to start tripling the amount of time it takes to check the current time, you can grab the Storm Synth in either stainless steel ($170 USD) or slate black finishes ($199 USD) over at Watchismo.

    WOW, why would anyone want to take all that time to find out what the current time is :-). Do people actually purchase this? I guess if you want to look stylish and have the money to throw away, why not.

      You think that’s crazy some people will pay thousands for a watch. I have a friend who works for a watch company and a representative told a manager that some lady paid 1.7 million for one of their watches, and those are nothing special

    These are actually a limited edition run of 3000, and yes i have one!
    Sure it doesn’t look conventional, but when was the last time you saw a watch that looked like that? Even with the £5000 brietling or tag heuer, from a short distance they could be mistaken for any £50 from most jewelers. You’ll never mistake a Storm!
