Take a look at the Visionary Concept Watch and see if you can figure out how it works. Without a bit of instruction, the timepieces are almost impossible to read, exhibiting a revolutionary way to consider and display the hour.

For Tokyoflash, designer José Manuel Otero pulled apart the units of time and some of the familiar visual indications of it. These markers were then reorganized into a rather disorderly digital face that features dashes and dots in lines and arcs all over the rectangular screen. As far as minutes are concerned, the wearer will have an easier time deducing the precise reading right around the hour, by counting the illuminated spots or only those that are not lit up.
