    It rotates clockwise as it uses a standard mechanism, instead of a minutes hand it has a dial that spins. To your eye this looks backwards, but it's the only way to do it without modification of the mechanism which would be prohibitively expensive.

    Quite a cool looking watch regardless, if I wasn't on a one watch only policy I'd be tempted by one!

    D'oh! Of course :lol: Silly me. Moving the dial not the hands.
    Still think it'd take a bit of getting used to...

    Shame I don't have the funds, as its pretty cool none the less. :rock:

    Hi Madginga, I see you got a perfect reply already! Just to add my thoughts, the minute window is made to a size such that it can show the current minute, the next step -past and coming up minute to work around that issue. When you see 10 .... 05 ....00 on the window, your mind doesnt see the disc moving in the wrong direction. It sees static digits and can subconsciously understand to look for an advancing number in time. Quite subtle but wearing the watch for a while, its effortless.

    I think it might be an artefact of the static images, in that it (obviously) shows the numbers appearing back to front, as you expect to read left-to-right; but when in operation, I suspect the movement will help, and that you're right in that it works quite well :)

    Good Luck!
    Shame I cant justify £300 on a new watch right now.

    Damn I missed this post. That's a seriously cool looking watch. Looks like the KS didn't succeed? Would have loved to have the Rosso, Arancio, or Azzurro.

    Sakzzz's link shows that the target wasn't reached and the KS campaign cancelled.

    It takes balls and effort to even try in the first place. So well done to the OP anyway even if the funding was never reached.
