Considering the unconventionality of the YOUARESOLATE Watch interface, perhaps the name is indicative of your situation once you've figured out how to tell the time on this unusual accessory. But jokes aside, there's something very appealing about this unique timepiece, given the way it invents a new notation for indicating the hour of the day.

The contemporary chronograph has the appearance of a very chic casual wristwatch, which combines a retro perforated buckle strap and a dial composed of twelve wooden slats. Each column represents an hour of the day, requiring you to count down from the top to learn the hour, while the minutes are denoted in a system of digital tallies. Conceived by Boris Kuznetsov, the YOUARESOLATE Watch distinguishes AM and PM with a colorful glow that changes from blue to red.
