This Magnifying Glass Watch Doesn't Function as a Normal Timepiece

This magnifying glass watch by Ann Demeulemeester brings a whole new meaning to minimal timepieces. The gorgeous watch appears to be like any other watch, complete with a glass face and an adjustable leather buckle. However, the 'Glass Mock-Watch' is missing one very important feature that watches have -- the ability to tell time.

In the place of the watch's face, Demeulemeester has included a magnifying glass. This is a clever and inconspicuous way to carry one around, especially if reading small print it a frequent challenge. By removing its function, this Demeulemeester watch becomes more like a decorative accessory than a working clock. If you are wearing this watch, others will probably assume that you are just wearing a minimal timepiece without any numbers or hands.
