Decypher Watch is Much Easier to Read Than It Looks

 |  |  |  |  February 9, 2012

Everyone loves a good puzzle. But if you’re strapped for time and haven’t figured out how to read the time off the Decypher watch, then I don’t think you’ll be very fond of it at all.


The watch face displays four figures, each with a lot of random-looking lines and triangles stuck on them all over the place. I tried staring at the image and trying to read off what time it was, before giving up and just peeking at the bottom of the image to read it off: 15:23.

The design was submitted by Lloyd from Australia, who explained: “I feel this design would appeal to puzzle, game and sci-fi lovers in particular. It would also suit geeks and anyone who likes quirky modern things as well as thinking ‘outside the box.'”

Here’s the key to figuring out the numbers that the figures stand for:

Extremely simple, right? But were you able to figure it out on your own? Now that you see it though, it’s actually a really easy watch to read if you know what you’re looking for.
