Running Square Watch Makes the Concept of Time Abstract

You may expect to see a pixelated watch express itself in the digital format, but it may surprise you to see that the squares that indicate the time on the Running Square Watch actually behave in an analogue way.

Designer Vladislav Novikov-Barkovsky created this chronograph with a form that celebrates the four-sided equilateral shape. The face of the accessory is a square, the dial is a diamond, and the gauge itself is made up of tiny quadrilaterals.

Instead of hands, the timekeeper has a small square and a larger square that pivot around a central medium-sized square. One represents the hour, and the other the minute. Although the Running Square Watch is compelling in its contemporary mode of telling time, a user may adjust it to display the date and hour in a more easily readable digital format.
