Till Watch – bring language back into telling time

Till Watch colors

Nothing says class like a watch. Unfortunately, wearing a watch is going out of style thanks to the time being on everyone’s cell phone. The Till Watch is a fun take on the traditional watch that uses words in place of numbers.

I don’t mean that five is written out instead of the actual digit. I mean that the watch is broken down into how many minutes past or till the time is to the hour. And when it’s exactly the hour, it’s “exactly” the hour. Now that the majority of the clocks we look at are digital, we just give the standard time more likely than not.

Till Watch

The minute hand shows common lines such as “10 past”, “quarter till”, and “half past” in place of just pointing out a number and having you give the time. This way you can pass along the time in a more classic way than just “1:05”. It adds color to our speech and makes our interactions just a little bit warmer. The Till Watch is $130.
