    Ring Watch?

    What say the masses, yes or no?

    It is old news (12 months at least since I saw it last elsewhere) , but very cool nonetheless

    (It reminds me of the finish and style of NOMOS, like that sundial ring they do), I expect it wouldn't fit well (on my fingers at least) due to the width of it ........ BUT I STILL WANT ONE!

    I may have to check out the Nomos. Actually somewhat in the market for a new wedding band. Silver doesn't seem to have the durability I need.

    yeah seen it before but it is a cool thing never the less. the one I saw was a different design am liking this one more
    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    After looking the Nomos ring is neat, but doesn't look very functional as a ring.

    I'm not much for rings, but it's pretty cool. My three year old would love.

    I have enough trouble reading a 40mm watch without my glasses - I've got no chance of reading that
    Besides which, even with my glasses on, I'm not sure about the ergonomics of it reading it.... when I play with my wedding ring, I'm looking at it 'standing up'.
    Sticking up a 'rigid digit' (to read it horizontally) in public could get me into all sorts of bother
    Some people have opinions - The rest of us have taste.
