Einsteinian Relativity Watch


Probably best consulted while sitting or supine: I don't know about you but my head started to spin around five past two.

From the website:

    Relativity Watch

    A great new take on relativity.

    The numbers on this watch actually rotate with each passing second, making 3:00 into 9:00 in 30 seconds.

    The time is still easy to read, but it's more fun than just a regular, non-relative watch.

    Quartz movement.

Actually, I really like this. I like ANYTHING that messes with people's expectations of normalcy. If you stare at it a while and do a little mind trick, it can look like the numbers are going counter-clockwise but changing as they go.

But there's something significant about the photo. It's an almost universal custom in the timepiece world to set the hands in photos to either 10:10 or 1:50 for perky symmetry.
