Sharing Watch

By Andrew Liszewski

So it turns out that all it takes to make it easier to share the time on your watch with someone is a simple 90 degree turn of its face. And that’s basically what’s been done with design studio Maezm’s Sharing Watch, which makes it extremely easy to show someone standing beside you what time it is, without inconveniencing the wearer too much. Unfortunately though, while the watch was designed to promote sharing, it seems Maezm doesn’t practice what they preach since the Sharing Watch is only a concept and isn’t available for sale.

    Great design!! With this it's more convenience to share time.

    Good grief! Is this really necessary?

    Because turning your wrist is a terrible inconvenience. I know, I've done it and it gave me caramel tunnel.

  • EspritOuvert

    I think a stranger would be confused as to why you're holding out your wrist instead of answering such a simple question.

  • Jessicat

    Wha'ts caramel tunnel? Is that were caramel starts to ooze out of you like a sundae dispenser? I think you mean carpal tunnel.

    I agree, some people don't like interaction with others, so this way it would be easy to share the time without talking to the person.

    I think he was just asking for someone to care enough to correct him.

    this is kind of interesting, or you could just get a digital watch which is just as easy to read wrong side up and right side up.

  • mcman

    I think you guys just can't keep up with the comedy. Whoosh! Trust me, if I write something it's on purpose and done for effect.

  • chaosoldier

    I enjoy thinking you have gone off your rocker more than believing that you did it on purpose.. We all know that if you spend day in and day out in the basement on the computer with no lights on and eating Twinkies and drinking tab eventually all those preservatives will make you crazy

    Think of the other possibilities that this could open up, like the addition of hand gestures other than a fist that could also be display as your showing off your 90 degree watch, then other people would really know that you didn't want to talk to them.
    Why is this only a concept? It can't be very hard to spin the face plate on the watch and reset the hands.
    At least it's not as weird as the “sharing chopstick” that they also have.

    Too bad they chose light grey on white for the rest of the numbers, so the stranger has to stick their nose on your arm to read it…
