Storm Synth Watch Tries To Throw You Off With Decoy Hands

Illustration for article titled Storm Synth Watch Tries To Throw You Off With Decoy Hands

Indeed, there is no shortage of watches out there that make it as difficult as possible to actually tell the time. (Thanks Tokyoflash!) Although, I suppose that watchmakers need to do something to differentiate themselves from their biggest competition—the cellphone. [Watchismo via Technabob]
