How can you have a watch that looks as though it has hands, but doesn’t? Of course the go-to response is a digital display, but there are other, more complex ways out there, such as light refraction. If course, if you’re looking for an unusual watch, be prepared for an unusually high price tag.
The Ressence Type 3 Wristwatch may just look like an interesting time piece, but it is astounding in function. The dome is made of sapphire crystals, and inside is a refractive clear liquid. The indications on the face are filled with fluid, and are essentially projected onto the dome, making it appear 2D. There aren’t any knobs, dials, or buttons to worry about, and to adjust, you merely need to rotate the watch as it has a system which responds to movement. This $29,500 watch displays the date, hours, minutes, and seconds, so it will always be moving.
