Designer and computer graphics pioneer Daniel Will-Harris’ ‘Till Watch tells the time using words, with a minute hand that features written-out times. Phrases like “5 till” and “10 past” replace traditional numbers.

Watch’s Minute Hand Spells Out The Time In English

Telling time is about more than numbers–it’s about the relationship between now and then. Till explores this relationship–so it’s not just 10:50, it’s “Ten Till Ten.” It’s not merely 12:30, it’s “Half past Twelve.” Yet the words we use to tell time have never been reflected on a watch. In our digital age, this useful language is starting to disappear.

The ‘Till Watch tells you the time the way you’d tell it, “speaking” to the wearer visually. It is available with either a brushed stainless steel case or a black stainless steel case.

The watch measures 40mm in diameter and has a 20mm wide silicone band. It is available to buy online for $125. Click through to see images of the ‘Till Watch:
