Good ideas with bad execution, or good execution of what should be bad ideas - an analysis of inferior, off-beat or malfunctioning products, and how other people's failures can help us design better stuff.
I can’t believe someone makes… Faceless watches
I can’t believe someone would make it so hard to tell the time – I can’t believe someone makes faceless watches.
Now, I think I know what you are thinking. Push a button and an LCD time, maybe, will be displayed. Just like some digital watches of yore?
Well, no. It’s more perverse than that. What you see is indeed a completely blank face plate. But see the pic below.
Thanks to Coated.com for flagging this one:
This cool watch known as the Diesel DZ9044 appears to have no actual watch face. At first glance, it appears to only have a polished black, stainless steel faceplate.
It seems there are four such mini-dials, configurable for any time zone you desire. Doh!
Available with a black or brown leather wrist strap, it will set you back $365. You can see more Diesel watches.
