The SF View concept watch from designer Nico NL1 is a unique timepiece that unfortunately has nothing to do with the city of San Francisco. The SF (sci-fi) View is designed to change the way you see time with its creative face that has an empty space in the middle.
The watch's face may look weird, but telling time on it is actually quite easy. Time is told by looking at the numbers in the center and reading them top down. The hours are displayed in military time with the minutes appearing in the two columns below. Seconds are displayed on the sides of the watch, with each bar representing one second and each filled column representing ten seconds. The buttons on the bottom of the face are used to set the time, turn on the watch's light and turn on its alarm.
The SF View concept watch is an entrant into Tokyoflash's design blog which seeks creative concepts to turn into reality. Recently one of the blog's past submissions, the Kisai Night Vision, went from concept to reality and is now available for purchase.
