The Ring clock is an original marriage of the ring and the watch
A couple of years ago Ring Clock, a design project for a competition by Szikszai Gusztáv, became viral after it first went online. Well it seems that now, the concept might become a reality thanks to a indiegogo campaign. The Ring clock is an original marriage of the ring and the watch, it features three rings that rotate separately, displaying the hour, minutes and seconds. It is made from stainless steel, is water-resistant, features LED lights that turn off automatically and comes with a wireless charger. watch the video
Despite this being an era where most of us are carrying a mobile phone, dedicated timepieces haven’t died out. In fact, there appears to be a healthy demand out there for innovative, unusual and expensive watches and the Ring Clock is the latest to enter the fray.
As its name suggests, The Ring Clock is a watch that you wear as a ring rather than a bracelet. It was originally designed in 2011 by Gusztav Szikszai as part of a competition to create a product that was impossible to make now, but may be feasible in 10 years. Given that the The Ring Clock is becoming reality just two years later, it might already be ahead of its time.
The final product is a chunky stainless steel finger ring made up of an inner ring and an outer ring. The outer ring has three distinct bands on it; the top one has the 24-hour clock markings, the second has minute markings, and the third has dots showing the seconds ticking away.
