    This Odd-Looking Ora Unica Watch Actually Hides A Simple Way Of Telling Time

    I’ve never been a big fan of wearing watches with dials that will make you jump through mental hoops in order to read.  Sure, they’re fun and all, but it turns checking the time from a split-second thing to an activity that will take five seconds or more.  It just seems counter-productive.  While the Ora Unica looks like one of those brain-twisting timepieces, you can actually use it to read time just as fast as other analog watches.
