Pressure Gauge Watch

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.

Available from Tokyoflash for $189.

This reminds me of a friend who created a metric time clock.

What? It doesn't read seconds?

I have a Bulova Accutron Spaceview manufactured from the early 1960's to the mid 1970's and it still works. Although not as sophisticated as our example here it was innovative by its use of an electrically driven tuning fork that drives the timepiece. It almost went to the moon because of its accuracy for a mechanical timepiece.
