    The source where I found it from: http://worldrec.info/2008/04/24/the-...plicated-watch

    ..says

    "There are 12 lights to indicate hour (the first 3 rows; 4 lights on each row). In the pic above, there are 10 lights in this area, hence 10 o’clock. Then on the 4th row, the first light indicates “quarter past”, the 2nd “half past” and the 3rd “quarter to”. In the pic above, the first light is lit, hence “half past” i.e. 15 minutes.
    The next 14 lights are for additional minutes. In the pic above, the first 10 lights are lit in that area.
    Hence, total minutes is 15+10=25. Hence, the watch is showing 10:25.
    The last 3 lights show the seconds ticking by.
    As you can see, the watch face has some subtle dark grey markings which distinguish the borderline between hours, minutes & seconds."




    Believe me, I couldn't figure it out for the life of me .. and I still can't!

    OMG, by the time you figure out what time it is you'll be late for whatever it was you were checking the for.


    Understeer is when you hit the wall with your front end. Oversteer is when you hit the wall with your rear end. Horsepower is how hard you hit the wall. Torque is how far you move the wall.
