Many of us have grown up with an understanding for how to tell time on an analog device, but this doesn't mean that at timepiece cannot be understood when a few of the features have been changed. The Quicksilver LCD watch does not have the familiar hour and minute hands that rotate around the dial; instead, it has a cluster of dots that bead about the face.

The movement of the liquid mercury-inspired circles corresponds to the recognizable 1 to 12 positions on a conventional clock. With Samuel Jerichow's design for Tokyoflash, the minute bubbles orbit around the inner disc and the hour droplets revole around the outer ring. The Quicksilver LCD wristwatch incorporates at least two dots per bunch, assisting in indicating the AM, PM and five-minute increments on either side.
