Don't you know that telling time is for the poors of the world.

Ballers that throw down 160 euro for a watch have people that tell time for them

In a world where everyone carries a cellphone, a watch is already relegated to status symbol/fashion accessory and has no functional purpose.  This product is refreshingly honest!  All those working parts cost money to build and can break.  Very mustachian!

Honest would be calling it a bracelet.
Mustachian would be not buying it.

Evidently enough people can't read them anyway, it might as well be blank.

My fancy-ass designer watch has had a dead battery for several years and no one has ever noticed.
Really, itís a status symbol bracelet and itís always been a status symbol bracelet, keeping it non functional is just my personal social commentary on how my watch isnít actually a watch.
Hilariously, my gold and diamond bracelet is worth way more than my brand-recognition-name stainless steel watch, but more people ooh and aah over my stupid dead-battery watch that canít tell fucking time, which is its ONE FUCKING JOB than my custom-made artisanal diamond bracelet.

So yeah, I wear a dead battery watch. I find it funny.

To be fair, they don't actually call it a "watch" and it comes in a cool wooden box designed to be used as a plant pot.  Haha!

Nunc is not a watch. It's a timepiece. Nunc is a powerful reminder to break free from the constraints of time and to embrace the full power of the present moment.

"We are trying to keep our CO2 footprint to the minimum by leveraging artisanal processes and materials, with most of our partners in Italy within a short drive from one another. We have estimated that the production of one timepiece creates 1.8kg of CO2e."

Let me help you get that CO2 footprint even lower. Don't chop down trees to turn into flower pots. Don't dig up the iron, and smelt it into steel. Don't dig up the marble and cut it into little circles. Don't make a useless product that you will have to ship to customers.

I do actually use my watch to tell time, because I'm the sort of person who leaves my phone off for several days at a time - I don't like it when people ring me up when I don't expect it. I can't imagine ever buying a watch that doesn't work, or, for that matter, one that cost Ä160. My previous watch was about £20 when new and had the battery replaced several times, and my current watch, which is similarly small and non-fancy, was given to me free by my grandma when the old one finally properly broke...

Set it to 5PM. Time to go home, time for a beer, time for alot of things besides work. I have a dead analog clock on the wall of my office. Folks glance at it and do a double take when they see it telling them its late in the afternoon.
