Scope Watch Looks Like More Work Than Its Worth
May 5th, 2010
Normally when I talk about weird watches that turn up over at Yanko Design, they’re concepts you can’t buy if they are appealing. Today we have a new and sort of cool watch called the Scope Watch that looks like it would be hard to use. Actually, we featured the Scope 2 a while back, but I’ve never seen the original, so I figured I’d post it.
The watch has a square face with hours along the bottom of a grid and minutes along the left side. The lines in the center of the screen intersect at the appropriate time. It seems easy enough, but it’s still odd to me. I can see me wearing this thing, someone asking what time it is, and it taking me a couple minutes to trace the lines with my finger and answer them.
The watch can be had in silver or black with different face colors as well. You can grab one up for $189 (USD) over at the Yanko Design store if you want.
