Concept Watch Looks Very Futuristic - But What Time Is It?

I mentioned in a recent article (What Time Is It? I'm Not Sure, But These Watches Are Cool!) that watches were developing into more form and less function.  If I'd known that the Zero wristwatches was around I would have included it in there.

This thing is truly design over functionality.  And it does it very well.  I mean, c'mon!  Tell me this isn't the chronometer that someone is Star Trek would wear!  I dare ya!

Designed by Robert Dai, the Zero wristwatch was conceived to have no buttons, no loose parts, and no numbers.  How minimalist can you get?!?!  Maybe the next step would be an invisible watch.  You could wear it, but not see it.

But I have to say that, for all of the shaving of detail, the Zero is easy to read.

Holy crap.  I think I can actually deal with this - though that middle one looks more like 4:30 to me.Holy crap. I think I can actually deal with this - though that middle one looks more like 4:30 to me.

This video (which looks 100% computer generated to me) shows how cool the watch looks while spinning and floating around:



As critical as I sound, I really think this thing looks neat.  If the price is right, I'd wear it...
