Ping magazine recently featured watches built with light-emitting diode (LED) technology from Japanese design firm Sea Hope. Nevermind that it’s impossible to actually tell the time on them, this is about art people.
As Murketing has pointed out:
The interesting thing about watches as a carrier of prestige is that watches have, in recent years, become so superfluous for most of us. If you have a cell phone, you have the time on you; you don’t need a watch. And indeed, I have read that mainstream watch sales are hurting.
