Called the PSI watch, it's designed to look like a pressure gauge. So much so that the markings on the dial indicate units of pressure rather than time. And there's only a single hand, which rests at the 0 mark.
So how can you use it to actually tell the time? That's a little complicated. First you need to press the button on the side, then the needle will move three times: first to the hour, then to the ten minute group, and finally to the single minutes. You need to do this each time you want to know the time.
The intended market for this, I assume, is either people who like weird watches, or people who really like pressure gauges.
