The Liquid Metal Watch is an unconventional metal timepiece designed by creative Y. Kimura that eliminates the need for watch hands to tell time. Instead the luxe timepiece utilizes three liquid blobs of mercury that shift around the watch's face to read the hour, minute and seconds. The mercury is suspended inside the watch so that the liquid is able to orbit using a series of magnets located underneath that keep the element suspended in place.

The watch is a product put together by retailer Seahope, that offers a uniquely visual for consumers to read time. The mercury is located inside the watch and as the magnets pull the substance, the blobs line up to the current time listed along the perimeter to accurately depict it.
