Mask Watch is an Analog Accessory that Emphasizes the Numbers You Seek

Even the newest designs of analog watches seem to have an antique quality to their appearances, but this is not true of the Mask Watch. This wrist-worn accessory has a low-tech rotary mechanism that looks like a very clear and contemporary interface.

Filip Slováček's chronograph comprises a black base face with an inner ring that's printed with the numbers 0 through 55, signifying five-minute intervals of a single hour. The outer ring features the digits 1 through 12. Two plain plates act like inverted hands, pivoting around the timepiece and revealing just a slice of that foundation dial. The wearer of the Mask Watch is thus afforded a limited view of the hour in the form of a pair of numbers. This makes it really quick to read a five-minute period.
