A watch on your fin­ger

Business First - - EXTRAVAGANCE -

Those in the jew­ellery game will hap­pily tell you that nowa­days a watch is rarely worn to tell the time. With mo­bile phones, com­puter screens and even the hum­ble desk phone proudly dis­play­ing the time, a watch is now be­ing sold as much as a piece of fash­ion­able jew­ellery as it is a prac­ti­cal time piece.

And with the ad­vent of the phone watch to be worn on your wrist (a la Maxwell Smart or James Bond), you al­most have an all in one sce­nario.

If you’d like to take that a step fur­ther, you may be in­ter­ested in get­ting your fin­gers on a Ring Clock. Two years ago, the con­cept was an­nounced with great in­ter­est, and now – through the mod­ern trend of crowd-fund­ing – you can have one for your­self.

Sure to be a gen­uine talk­ing point, the Ring Clock has three rings that ro­tate sep­a­rately, dis­play­ing the hour, min­utes and sec­onds. An in­di­ca­tor en­sures that you put the ring on prop­erly, and the cur­rent time is high­lighted. Never be late again, or if you’re go­ing to, at least be fash­ion­ably so.
