Considered more of an accessory, ‘Real Fake Watches’ are actually made without working time pieces on purpose.

Berlin based designer Linda Kostowski invited other designers to help her create the realfakewatches. They are wristwatches that only work for one minute every day (two for analog ones).

Each one comes with a unique time which can be customized by the user when they order the watch, perfect for people with a 'thing' for 11:11.

The watches are laser cut from three pieces of leather and manually assembled. They fasten with Velcro.

The retail price on these watches is 36 euros, or 49 euros if you pick what time your watch will display. Stats for Intentionally Incorrect Timepieces Trending: Older & Mild
