It's Half-Past a Binomial Coefficient

Regular numbers? Those are for amateurs. Show off your mathematical prowess with a watch that features the equivalent notation of each number.

Cheat Sheet (included with each watch):
12 - a radical
1 - Legendre's constant is a mathematical constant occurring in a formula conjectured by Adrien-Marie Legendre to capture the asymptotic behavior of the prime-counting function. Its value is now known to be exactly 1.
2 - A joke in the math world: An infinite number of mathematicians walk into a bar. The first one orders a beer. The second orders half a beer. The third, a quarter of a beer. The bartender says, "You're all idiots," and pours two beers.
3 - A unicode character XML "numeric character reference."
4 - Modular arithmetic, also known as clock arithmetic, is a system of arithmetic for integers, where numbers "wrap around" after they reach a certain value. The modular multiplicative inverse of 2 (mod 7) is the integer /a/ such that 2*/a/ is congruent to 1 modulo 7.
5 - The Golden Mean...reworked a little.
6 - Three factorial (3*2*1=6)
7 - A repeating decimal that is proven to be exactly equal to 7 with Cauchy's Convergence Test.
8 - Graphical representation of binary code.
9 - An example of a base-4 number, which uses the digits 0, 1, 2 and 3 to represent any real number.
10 - A Binomial Coefficient, also known as the choose function. 5 choose 2 is equal to 5! divided by (2!*(5-2)!)
11 A hexadecimal, or base-16, number.

Made in China. Standard watch battery included. This watch is not water-proof.

    This was a graduation gift for my nephew who will be majoring in Mathematics in college in the fall. The minute he saw it he loved it. He was excited to figure out how to solve each problem/equation. This is definitely a unique gift that was perfect for him.

      This proved to be an excellent solution to buying a graduation gift for a most 'gifted' young man who, this year, is graduating from 8th grade. Yes, it is a more 'adult' item than you'd think he would appreciate, though in fact the receipt was rated, "SCORE!!".
      Right on, eh~~

      I will most likely wear this as a conversation starter at nerdy events, or just display it in my house somewhere when it's not used. I just think it's a fantastic idea and love looking at it.

        Comments about GEEK WRIST WATCH:

        I bought this for my husband, who is an engineer (and quite frankly, a total geek) for his birthday last year and he absolutely loved it. It was a fun gift and he had a good time figuring out what all the numbers are, etc. I will say that the watch was smaller than I expected -- it is definitely a unisex watch. My husband is a big guy and he has to use the last hole on the strap and even at that, the watch barely fits. He really likes it, though, and the band really makes it unique. Unfortunately, the band broke some time ago, but after contacting customer service, they really went above and beyond to get us a replacement. I was beyond pleased with their service and promptness. We had a new watch within days.

          I bought this watch as a graduation gift for my son who is in his senior year of Petroleum Eng. at Univ. of Tulsa. I knew he would love it, so. needless to say I couldn't wait and gave it to him early. He absolutely loved the watch. It's so unique and such a great reminder of all the math courses he has taken. When the watch arrived, my husband told me he wanted it if our son didn't like it! Guess I need to order another one!

                We love the watch. Very clever. Very attractive. But, we needed a gift for a manly man. The watch is smaller and more delicate than we expected -- perfect for a geek woman, but not so much for our big, strong man.
