Equilibrium Wrist Watch & Sculpture
It's an ever changing kinetic mobile for your wrist. I designed this watch originally inspired by the artificial horizon instruments on aircraft. But it's constantly changing shapes make it a very graphic, kinetic piece of sculpture for your wrist that's fascinating an the watch's fine white lines provide a sense of perspective to an ever-shifting horizon. The hour and minute hands each feature a round red index which rotates across the black and white dial. The shift of time alters and aligns the dial's symmetry with each passing hour. The Equilibrium watch with black electroplated case features a second hand and is available with either a soft black leather band or a black stainless steel mesh band. Unisex sized case measures 33mm (1 1/3 ").

This is on ThinkGeek.com?? A classic yet modern watch. Besides the separate and unconventional seconds, hours and minute hands, the middle dial of the watch (which appears black in the photo) actually conceals a regular, clean, hour dot-markers dial. As the second hand rotates, it turns a top, clear plastic piece that's polarized (like your sunglasses). This makes the dial fade from crystal clear, to a darker, darker, twilight shade (hence the name) until it is night-black. Then, 20 seconds (and rotations later) it goes in reverse - from complete darkness to perfect clarity. This goes on and on, dark to light, light to dark. It's jewelry in motion. While how it works might be geeky, it's a modern and surprisingly cool looking watch. The leather band has no visible lugs, so it meets the watch case seamlessly, like a bracelet. The case is made with a sleek, matte aluminum finish. All the marker hands are different shapes. And it's an understated 36 mm in size, letting the watch itself shine without shouting. To truly appreciate the watch in motion, watch the video on their site. $120. UPDATE: Figures this isn't a ThinkGeek exclusive. It's from the Projects Watch Co., by designer Daniel Will-Harris - maker of the also modern and cool 'Reveal' Watch, among others. Check out the included pics for close ups of each phase.
