It's still going to take some practice to be able to read the time at a glance, but Mr Jones's new Satellite watch doesn't look as complicated as Tokyo Flash's latest efforts. And astronomy enthusiasts will appreciate its use of hour and minute markers that look like orbiting celestial bodies.
Instead of an LCD display or even numbers, the $US195 Satellite's black watch face simply has a pair of spheres that reveal a series of coloured dots as they orbit around its centre. The colours follow a six-hour pattern, so eventually you'll be able to accurately estimate the time with a quick peek. But since the watch represents an entire 24 hours, it might be hard for some wearers to get used to the six o'clock mark actually denoting midnight.
