It doesn't take a terribly effortful movement to check the time of day, but this slanted watch concept makes the experience just a little more ergonomic by modifying the way that the analog face lies across your arm.

Firstly, you may notice that the placement of the 12 o'clock notch has been rotated, making it easy for the wearer to read the hour upright, even when his forearm is outstretched in front of him. Rayyan Toh's little red marking reminds the user that noon and midnight positions are no longer represented on the perpendicular. A close look at the entire head of the chronograph will reveal that this too has been tweaked. The surface is ever-so-slightly inclined for a better view of this slanted watch.
