Can you tell what time it is on this watch?




Not sure anyone wants to relearn how to tell time

I assume this is 3:47.

Bradley Classic Mesh / $285.00


The minimalist face of The Bradley Classic features raised markers at each hour. To increase tactile legibility, there is a triangular marker indicating “12”, and elongated markers for “3”, “6”, and “9”. The track on the inside of the markers indicates the minutes, and the track running along the outer edge of the watchface indicates the hours. The mesh band is stainless steel.

Hmmm . . . is that thing at 3 the outside marker or the winder? There's a bump at 2, so I would say either 1:47 or 2:47, depending on what the outside marker does (does it keep moving past the hour in increments or stop on the hour and advance in whole amounts). I'm guessing 1:47 as it's almost to the 2 but not quite there yet.

1:47 or 9:09

Depending if the inner ring is the minute or hour. Judging by the position 1:47 seems more likely even though on a regular watch the short hand is the hour and the long hand is the minutes.

So, $285 for a watch and you can't figure out the ducking time.

Does anybody really know what time it is?

The allure of Rolexes eludes me. A Ferrari has more features and speed than my car. A Rolex is just a watch. No matter how much it costs, it's still 5:30.

Isn't it just male jewelry? You could say the same thing about designer shoes and handbags, it's status more than anything else.

Looks very cool in the photo. Looks pretty stupid in the video.

They've had them for years.

Cool thing is, they have a hinged crystal.That way, the hands are protected when not being read.

If Apple made watches this wouldn't be a problem.

People don't read properly any more. It says right under the photo which is which.
