The hourglass is one of the oldest timekeeping methods there is and not much has changed in the last hundreds of years in hourglass design. Until now. The “Sand+Time Watch” from designer Pavel Balykin takes this ancient concept and updates it to the digital age. Sort of. Technically the hourglass pixel mode is just a screensaver and you have to actually press a button on the watch to the get the proper time but aesthetically it looks really freakin’ cool to be wearing an hourglass on your wrist.
The Sand+Time Watch solves that age old issue of wearing an hourglass on your wrist- the problem is keeping your wrist level at all times and flipping it over when the sands run out (which is exactly why all previous hourglass watches failed).
