Watches, much like calculators are outliving their usefulness since we can get the time and crunch numbers using all of our gadgets. So watches are becoming more about fashion then needing the time. With that in mind, design student Nicolas Lehotzky has something new to offer.
It’s a watch with treads that move like that of a tank, or Caterpillar construction vehicles, incorporated into the band and the watch. The belt is fed through the strap in a loop and the number that’s shown on the raised watchface gives you a rough idea of the current hour. The belt could be modified for more complexity, giving it more accuracy as well. The appeal is it’s simplicity and originality.
