Timepiece

I remember a while back I was woken up by someone in our house playing music. Kim and I had spent a few nights with barely any sleep so we weren’t all that surprised to find that it was six in the evening and we’d slept right through the day. We were both still tired but I dragged myself out of bed and all but crawled down to town on this bright Sunday afternoon so I could return some DVD rentals and not wind up with a fine.

The first thing I noticed was that no matter how bright the sun was shining, there was a nice chill to the wind. It felt great as I walked through streets that were deserted on the way down town. Not a person or vehicle moving. It was quite unsettling when I noticed. As one does in these situations I found myself absently wondering if I’d missed the end of the world – a thought that jumped to the front of my mind when I found all the shops in the town closed.

What I wasn’t aware of until I returned home and checked the time was that we’d been woken up at 6 am not 6pm. It was that time of year when both are equally as bright, and the idiot playing music got severely shouted at.

What I needed was this watch which is designed not to tell you the time, but to tell you if it’s day or night. Not only that but it uses Tourbillon movement, which should overcome the accuracy limitations imposed on analogue watches by our own gravity. Why it needs to be that accurate when it doesn’t even tell the time is beyond me, as is the price tag of $300,000 (Ā£151,904 – ā‚¬189,477 – R2,354,354). I know it’s a unique watch, but that’s a bit steep for me even though I needed it’s capabilities once.
