I love timepieces that do their job and make a statement while doing so, and the 'Ora' watch by Alexandros Stasinopoulos is a perfect example. The watch face replaces the standard dial with three intersecting tapes to indicate the hour, minute and second.

The 'Ora' watch by Alexandros Stasinopoulos comes in several colorways, each more appealing than the last. This timepiece proves that it's possible for a watch to be just as beautiful as it is functional.

Implications - Personally, I've never been truly attracted to the idea of an expensive watch, but the 'Ora' Watch by Alexandros Stasinopoulos shows me there are things a cut above your typical flashy watch. The arrangement of the hands on the watch indicate aspirations to "demonstrate in a bold and dramatic way," says a quote on the website.

Count me in.
