Top 25 Timepiece Trends in October

From Streaming Cellular Smartwatches to Fur-Covered Timepieces

— October 28, 2017 — Fashion
In a way, the October 2017 timepiece trends are a beautiful example of a centuries old design concept. However, one might also argue that the entire concept of keeping time is in truth merely emblematic of humanity's vain attempt to subjugate the one force that is fundamentally and forever outside of our own control. Regardless of where one stands on the issue, the October 2017 timepiece trends are certainly attractive.

One of the most interesting timepieces in the collection is the Touch Clock. The wall clock has hands like any other, but those hands are hidden beneath a dense mop of fur, forcing users to feel the clock in order to know the time. Though it might seem impractical, the clock is more about encouraging sensation through tactility than it is about actually delivering information.
