Counterclockwise Watch: Time Marches Backwards

by Paul Strauss

What is with Japan’s obsession with making watches that are difficult to read? While TokyoFlash seems to have cornered the market on weird and challenging digital watch designs, here’s an analog watch that’ll mess with your head too.


At first glance, this looks like any other analog watch. But look again. Notice the numbers around the dial? Yep. They’re backwards. All the hands on this unusual watch run counterclockwise just to keep you on your toes. And if you’ve got friends who like to look at your watch to see what time it is, it’ll really mess with them.


Other than the hands running completely back-asswards, the specs on the watch are pretty normal. It’s got a brass case, water-resistant to 3ATM, along with a stainless steel crown, a leather band, and a mineral glass crystal.


While I haven’t been able to find these in any U.S. shops yet, if you’re willing to do a little Japanese translation and currency conversion, you can find one over at the Sea Hope shop on Rakuten, where they sell for ¥5,250 (appx. $68 USD).

I suppose if you really wanted on of these for some reason, you could try reversing the polarity on the battery in a cheap motor-driven watch, but I’m not sure that’d work.
