The Random Scribbles on This Watch Face Actually Do Tell the Time

If you're a fan of obscure and hard to read watch faces, you've just found another addition to your collection. The sleek $180 Ora Unica is all black save for a couple of white squiggles on the watch's face. It might seem like a non-functional fashion accessory, but if you look close you'll see those seemingly random scribbles actually do display the time.


The shorter arm of the scribbles displays the hour, while the longer one points to the current minute, like the hands on any analog watch face do. At first it's confusing, but over time you'll figure it out. You'll just have to accept the fact that simply showing someone your watch isn't going to be enough when they ask for the time.
