An interesting new watch is coming from Bell & Ross – The Compass Watch. This time it is not only a design innovation, but also technically a different watch from their other models.
“You will immediately notice that this is not a normal watch — in fact the design is inspired by old school aviation navigation instruments in that the watch keeps time via one fixed point at the top of the dial.
Rather than two hands moving around a dial, the dial — or in this case two dials — move around a single hand (ie a fixed point). Thus there are two concentric disks which independently rotate to reflect the hours (outer dial) and minutes (inner dial).
The watch is limited to 500 pieces and will be released in October 2010.
Take a closer look at the watch after the jump.
