Apart from a number of subdials and power reserves etc, and some of these goofy ones with two counter-rotating hands more interested in being "different" than anything else, are there any watches whose hands turn counter-clockwise?
I was thinking about the contrast between reading analog and digital watches. With digitals one must consciously read the numbers. With analogs one grasps the relative positions of the hands and mentally converts that to the time. Although there are two steps, the analog seems both quicker and easier. Just as an analog speedometer is quicker than a digital one.
But would that be true with a counter-clockwise analog watch? Of course it would take a learning process but I wonder if there is something "natural" about clockwise versus counter-clockwise?
