The 'Ban Watch' Streams a Live Image of Big Ben

Watch designer extraordinaire Andy Kurovets has released images of a new conceptual wristwatch called the Ban Watch. The Ban Watch was designed to replicate the image of London’s Big Ben clock tower. The watch doesn’t just have a faceplate with the image of Big Ben on it. The Ban Watch uses the actual image of the clock along with the corresponding time in London.

Kurovets' design does this using a camera pointed directly at Big Ben at all hours of the day. The camera would send an image of the clock to a satellite which would then transmit that image to the Ban Watches across the world. The wearer could then see the current time in London along with their own local time, which gets second billing below Big Ben’s face. Stats for Clock Tower Wristwatches Trending: Older & Chilly
