"Hey what time is it?"

"It is...hold on. Lemme carry the one...no wait, that's not right. The time isn't 5:78. Wait lemme look at the instructions real quick. *glances at instruction booklet in pocket* Ahhh okay. Its 1:10"

"...thanks. O.O"

[citation][nom]Wittermark[/nom]this is grade 2 math, if people can't add single and double digits together, then they should go back to school.[/citation]

What if I have a 1st grader? :p

Why the hell would you want to add numbers to tell time!? why not just get a regular watch.

This looks like a math teachers watch.

Person: Sir can you tell me what the time is...

Teacher: Its 2+2!

Person: uhh!! 3!!

Teacher: FAIL!

It could keep your brain exercised, we tend to do less and less these days.

I mean lots of dummbed down versions of everything, how about not going the way of dummbing down the test until everyone passes and try to get everyone to a passable level.

Also why would this watch be for everyone if u can't read it u are probably not suppose to have it.

Or maybe it's a geek's watch? And there's probably more people who'd take longer to read an analog face than a binary display.

Personally I'm not mad keen on this design, but then I already have my blue LED binary watch lol

Now make a green and brass Steampunk version of this two-faced design and I'd be all over it.

I'd take the binary for uniqueness if I wore watches, not sure why you'd bother with essentially two watches on one band. Why not just go all in and add a digital face as well?

[citation][nom]eastbay[/nom]Not sure I'd buy a watch like the one shown - Analog time is 10:10, Binary time is 1:10 ??[/citation]

Well, considering there are 2 watches side by side in the picture, the person responsible for displaying them together simply failed to match the time on each watch, that's all. :) Heh.
