after reading this post i totally wanted one, they are beautiful, that is until i checked out the site and saw that the hour is a second bearing on the side and you cannot tell the time from looking at the face. what? why?
i was hoping that the bearing that told the hour on the front moved towards the next hour over the course of the hour incrementally. that way i could visually or tactilely tell the time down to a reasonable resolution just from the front bearing alone, and the side bearing could be a more precise way to tell the minute when desired. This would increase the functionality/usability tremendously, and be more in line with regular watch faces where the short hand (inside bearing) is hours and the long hand (outside bearing) is minutes. 90% of the time the face bearing would be the only one you'd need to use to tell the time, but the side bearing would be there if you wanted a more accurate minute. that would be super functional, practical, and work well for both the sited and blind/vision impaired.
as it is it is functionally backwards from what I'd find optimal to use, the most important information is de-emphasized in the design. you can't tell the hour by glancing at the face of the watch. oh well...FAIL.
if someone wants to make the reverse of this watch it would be awesome and i would buy it. sad that this one fell short in regards to the most crucial aspect of a watch.
