That’s time at your fingertips

finger-nail-watch.jpg

I am one of those people who never wears a watch on my wrist. Among the lame reasons that I don't is that I find all watches cumbersome to fasten. Lazy me.

The runner-up at the global watch design competition “Timex2154: The future of time,” held by Timex and Core77, is a stunner that promises to fundamentally change the way watches are worn and used. TX54 is a concept for a translucent watch that can be worn on your . . . thumbnail. Add to that a lovely indiglo display with color options for the displayed text, and the translucent feature that allows the watch to blend completely into your nail unless it is “activated.” A deadly combination of fashion and functionality, if you please.

Well folks, since I am pretty sure that I will not last until 2154, I am just keeping my fingers crossed (and ready) in the hope of seeing this selling sooner.

i wear a timex indigo of a different sort: a kids' watch with a fabric, elastic band. it slips on and off with no effort (well, i do take pains to ensure the face is rightside up). it runs around $12. i got so addicted to the ease of not clasping that my "dressy" watch, as it were, is a silver swatch with a stretchy band that looks like a nice bracelet. oh, and i prefer "kinesthetically efficient" to lazy.
