We’ve featured so many unconventional watches here on Lost At E Minor, but this one’s a first: a watch that uses the back of the hand as the watchface, and projects the time onto it.

There’s no doubt that the throwback trend has been going strong for a while in many different industries, and I’m happy that Rolex has decided to jump on the bandwagon by honoring its roots.
I recently stumbled upon the Etsy store Clockwork Universe and immediately became obsessed with mechanical wristwatches. They just make sense to me. In a society overwhelmed with non-durable high tech gizmos, a hand-wound watch helps take the edge off.
