    Unconventional Watches, do you own any?

    Hello everyone,

    Fabio from Italy here. Nice to meet you all :) I'm a watch enthusiast since when I figured out what a watch was, although I've started collecting around 2012. Yet, since the beginning of my passion I've always been attracted from unsusual watches, sadly I don't own any yet. So I'm here to ask you, do you have some watches that you'll consider "unconventional"? I'd love to see them :D

    I've found this "Xela watch" (never heard the brand and I can't post the link because I'm too "forumly young") and I quite like it, but I hate it's a quartz!

    I love Alain Silberstein watches, but I can't really quite understand if they worth the price and they have strange measures. I'd love to find an automatic watch "out of royalties" so... Can you help me?

    Cheers :P

    That's a weird watch. Can you tell time on it? I've sat here trying to figure it out!

    There's a video about how it works but I can't post it! I know it seems crazy but I like it :P (google Xela Watch Project and you'll see it)

    I'll add that I know the function of the watch is to tell the time, but for me it's more than that so it's ok if it takes a couple of seconds more to read it :D

    The description claims that the silver hand is the second hand, the red hand is the minute hand, and the blue hand is the hour hand, but the hands do not appear to rotate at the right relative rates in the video to be indicating the hours, minutes, and seconds correctly.
