Learning to tell time may be difficult for a few, but the Mr. Jones Satellite watch will definitely confuse everyone.

According to Uber Gizmo, this watch is considered to be one of the first 24-hour watches yet. The face of the watch is blank, void of all numerals, just like it is in space. Mimicking the orbiting solar system, the rotation of the planets on the face represent a different time of day for 24-hours. This means that one complete cycle on the watch is equivalent to one rotation of the Earth around the sun.

Understanding the complexity and unconventional aspects of the design, the creators provide a pictorial chart, reteaching users how to tell time to eliminate potential confusion. Only 100 of the limited edition Mr. Jones Satellite watches will be sold.
