The slow watch has only one hand that rotates once every 24 hours. It actually moves at half the speed of a normal watch, but allows you to see at one glance the progress of your entire day. $280

The Ressence Type 3 transports time from the dial to the crystal. The orbiting indications are bathed in a fluid that refracts light like air, so that the indications appear to be displayed directly onto the sapphire crystal – closer to the eye of the beholder. The high-contrast white indicators against the black dial appear to be projected onto the top crystal as if onto a screen. Type 3 offers a tangible feeling of being able to touch time itself. $34,600
