The "Anti-stress watch." This is how the Chromachron was described; it was praised for its inability to ever display the exact time. Its colorful dial instead offers a new interpretation of time, and, dare I say, of punctuality. The Chromachron concept might not have replaced our conventional understanding of time, but it definitely challenged the standard notion of time and left a mark in wristwatch design. For these reasons and more, I've been obsessed with these weird little pieces and I've hunted them for years.

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
