If you are in the market for a unique styled wristwatch you might be interested in a new creation called the Type 50 limited edition watch that has been created by Division Furtive.
The design of the watch incorporates a mechanism that will only display the time when you twist your wrist in front of you. As you can see from the images colours are displayed on top and minutes on the bottom. Check out the video after the jump to learn more about this very unique wristwatch.
Features of the Type 50 include a Travel Time mode as well as, Chronometer, Moon Phase and Calendar to name a few. The Type 50 watch project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise $49,970 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production. Its creators explain a little more.
“The travel mode is not based on GMT or UTC time zones, you simply need set the time shifts (offsets) you’ll be using during your traveling. Therefore you set your “home” time, the “west” (minus) offset and “east” (plus) offset that you plan to use (it’s most likely that you’ll be traveling in only one destination/direction and therefore use only one of the two offsets).
When you reach your destination (for example, going to Paris from Montreal is going east with a 6 hours time shift), you just enable the travel mode (“west” or “east”, “east” in the current example) and the watch automatically apply the preset time shift. At any moment, you can switch back and forth between home time and east/west destination time.”
