crazy numbers watch


"A consultant is someone who comes to your office, borrows your watch and tells you what time it is."*

Best definition ever.

No wonder things are so screwed up around here: she borrowed this watch!

From Tim Schwartz and his merry band of pixies and pranksters at idio:synchro Watch Company in Fort Collins, Colorado comes this superb take on time along with others guaranteed to make your table read "Tilt."

$99 here.

No computer?

No problem: they have a telephone which will ring if you dial 303-618-2766.


Nice box.

*It's later than you think.

Al - I noticed a similar converse situation in the naming of properties (in Mississippi, at least) - where The Reservation is where the rich people live and The Maison de Ville is where the poor people live. (And I suspect that your watch analogy might have something to do with age too - the younger, lower-paid workers liking the gadgets and the older execs wanting to appear understated but rich.)

This reminds me of an article I read a couple of decades ago. Among other things, it proposed that one's general place in the pecking order could be determined by the amount of information one's watch provided. The more information, the lower one's status. For example, they guy with the multi-function digital watch/calculator/game/GPS/cell phone/MP3 player/stock ticker probably works some lowly job in the company, while the CEO wears a watch with no numbers, no second hand, only a diamond at 12:00. And if you're truly at the top of the food chain, you don't need a watch at all. You run on your own time and everyone/everything adjusts to you.

It kind of reminds me of the Einstein Relativity Watch I have, but mine was only $29.95: http://www.mentalfloss.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=ERW&Category_Code=gft

The top picture looks different from the one in the box at the bottom. The one on the bottom has a red 8 and the other numbers look like they are in the normal pattern. Which one is it? Thanks
