Colombian designer Alex Garzon was inspired by a natural phenomenon when he drafted this rotational watch face. The circular watch has a simple dial and background that is color-blocked to resemble a lunar eclipse. Exuding an overall science-esque feel, the Lunaround watch is minimalist and clean-cut.

The watch’s face is nontraditional, because every aspect of it is constantly moving. Its hour hand, shaped like a crescent moon, rotates a full cycle every 12 hours. The accompanying full moon is rotating as well, though it’s very slow and barely noticeable. There is even a digital hour indicator bar inside the moon that is continuously switching. The simplistic design is finished off with red minute and second hands for an accent of color. Stats for Moon-Mimicking Rotational Watches Trending: Older & Warm
