The Gnomon Watch Brings the Ancient Time-Teller into the 21st Century

I bet the ancient Egyptians never thought that their sundials would look anything like the Gnomon Watch. The Gnomon Watch is a modern-day sundial that tells time using LEDs as opposed to sunlight.

The Gnomon Watch comes to us courtesy of a designer known only as "Anders from Sweden." Anders submitted his creation to the Tokyoflash design blog, which is known for its off-the-wall and occasionally impossible-to-read watches. The Gnomon Watch, like nearly all Tokyoflash watches, is definitely cool and original; thankfully, it isn't hard to read. The two "shadows" of the watch tell time just like a regular analog watch with one exception: the hour and minute hands have been reversed.
