PRODUCT STORY
"Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one." – Albert Einstein.

Confront your sense of perception and the bounds of reality with a watch that presents time as an illusory concept that is as easily tracked as it is altered. The hands of this watch may tell time, but the face clicks in perpetual motion, altering the time-space continuum ever so slightly. Like a surrealist paining, numbers appear to melt, reflecting the fluidity of moments as they ebb into each other. Though simple to understand, these time wrapping visual effects have been known to bend minds and attract deep thinkers, amateur philosophers, or self-proclaimed geniuses. Japanese quartz movement. Faux leather band. Made in China.
MATERIALS
Metal, glass, faux leather strap

The watch face concept is fun. Concerned, though, that if fake leather band is easily torn or damaged that customers will be unhappy.

It's a very interesting idea and would be a cool novelty item, but I think it would quickly lose its charm

Confusing dial, and sweaty faux leather band don't sound like winning features.

I am not a watch person. I don't think they look nice and I cannot stand the ticking noises. Blech.
