hank you for taking time out of your busy day rooting for the Dodgers over the Nationals to check out this week’s Watch Video Rewind, where we highlight interesting watch related videos we come across on the interwebs. Today I decided to highlight some of the linear time scale watches out there, watches that skip the circular dials and instead scroll the time scales up and down, left and right… any linear direction.
First up is the Prometheus T3000, with a crazy 1,000 hour power reserve (yep 40 days) and a Tourbillon.
I will not say that the Devon Tread is the first watch of this type, not even the first ‘high end’ watch of this type, since I am sure that our readers will point to earlier styles, but it was one of the first ones I really was aware of, and that is what really matters after all. ABTW reviews the Tread 1 from 6 years back.
Now, if you need a watch to wear when cruising around in your Ferrari California, may I recommend the Hublot LaFerrari watch. You know, just in case the dashboard clock goes out.
The previous watches are a bit too… expensive… you say. Well, you could opt for a Division Furtive watch. Sure, it isn’t the mechanical marvel of the Hublot or Prometheus, but it is also a tad more affordable.
OK. Enough of this affordable stuff. I would ave excluded the HYT fluid watch, since the fluid does move in an arc, but the technology was reimagined in the H3, with a linear display, fitting right in here. I wonder, do they use Penzoil antifreeze as the liquid?
And with that, I’ll wrap up this week’s edition of Watch Video Rewind. If you stumble across any interesting watch (or time) related videos out there, or if you make your own Watch Story, drop us a line. If we end up using in the watch video rewind from your suggestion, we’ll be sure to tip our hats (electronically, if not literally) in your general direction.
