Hour Glass goes digital with the Sand Time Watch


Designer Pavel Balykin has decided to revamp the retro sand-hour-glass by conceptualising a digital version with his Sand Time Watch. Well, sort of.

The Sand Time Watch, according to me, might be a misnomer because the watch uses a “digital hour glass” only as a screensaver. The actual time, however, is shown once you press a button – and the screensaver then disappears. Much to the disappointment of traditional folks (which includes me), there is no sand and the hour glass does not count time. Nevertheless, the concept is pretty cool and the watch itself looks trendy. Will the Sand Time Watch make it into production? Only the hour glass can tell.
