Of all the cool Kickstarter designs I’ve seen this year, SaStek seems to take the proverbial cake. Their watch, the Time Speed Indicator, is a clever amalgam of mystery dial complication with a clever aeronautical theme.

Based on an airspeed indicator for a jet airplane, the watch has an arrow around the edge that shows the hour and a middle window for the minute. It runs a standard Miyota 9015 automatic movement and the numerals and hour hand are nicely lumed for night viewing. There are multiple styles including the orange and PVD ARANCIO and the yellow and black GIALLO. All of them come on leather bands.

The designers plan to ship in January and the pieces cost $347 for early birds. I’m surprisingly pleased by the design and idea behind the case and face and would love to see this puppy in real life. SaStek watches on Kickstarter
