The Stress Watch
The Avidus watch accentuates the way time seems to pass more quickly or more slowly depending on our mood.
If we are in a hurry, time seems to pass so fast. But when we are relaxed (or bored), it appears to slow down.
Two metal contacts on the watch face measure your stress level. If you're stressed and touch the watch, then the hour displayed runs forward, the more stressed the faster. If you're totally relaxed, the time can even run backwards.
Avidus is one of the 7 amazing Mr Jones Watches that were designed by Crispin Jones. They were produced as one-off working timepieces, but a possible commercial production is under study.
