A Mesmerizing Piece for Any Collection


You’ve probably never worn—or seen—anything quite like this jumping-hour timepiece from Zeno-Watch Basel. The main dial has a macaroni-shaped window to indicate the hour. Every 60 minutes, once the minutes hand has completed a full revolution, the hour hand “jumps” forward to the next hour—a feature that’s as mesmerizing as it is unique. To track running seconds, use the secondary subdial, positioned on the bottom right of the dial. It rotates like a disc and is marked in intervals of five, just like the minutes track. Because of the dials’ layout, you can actually see through the watch in the negative space. Another detail to note is the crown, which can be found at 9 o’clock. Finally, the watch is fitted with a sapphire crystal and is water resistant to 50 meters.

Fail indeed. It's not every day that I see a Zeno that gives me the dry heaves.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

What the fuckity fuck is that thing?? Looks like something the folks at Jaquet Droz might come up with after over doing it on the Welsh rarebit.

The opening line is correct...I have never worn or seen anything like this and never will.

I suppose there are watches that are hard to hate, and watches that are hard not to hate. This is one of the latter. I may vomit.
