Chingiz says: I sat by the river and thought why modern watches don’t tell the true time. Because all known classic and digital watches repeat everyday. But we consume our lives/time/ like water, fuel or cigarettes and we must see it being exhausted constantly.
This ‘Binary Sand Watch’ has three lines with six digits in each. First line tells hours the rest two tell minutes as shown on attached files. Display shows a day is passing like fuel gauge. Modern digital color palette allows to give each day its own unrepeatable color. i.e. the watch display changes into a brand new color everyday that never repeats. A.m. or p.m. can be easily defined by the ‘level’ of the day.
Everyone who appreciates his own time must have a watch like this. We must avoid wasting time and learn to value it. We don’t purchase time like fuel or cigarettes, but nevertheless the time is precious.
Except the factory settings everyone can assign his own interpretation of reading time giving to each digit a new combination. Thus it can be an extremely personal watch, which can be read only by its owner. Also it will be the only watch that tells the true time.
