Sometimes it seems like the more expensive the watch the harder it is to read the time. While I don’t know the price of Geoffrey Cooper’s Geocentric – it looks to be concept only – it’s pretty fair to say it would be near to impossible to ever get an accurate reading from the dial. But with this kind of style and originality do I really care?
The two circles rotate around the circumference of the watch as time passes and are said to mimic the rotation of the planets. The outer ring represents the hours, the next inner ring the minutes and the third the seconds. Presumably the point at which the second ring touches the hour indicator is the time of day, but again, you’ll never know exactly what time it is. Probably not the best time piece to sport if you’re trying to catch a bus, flight or just about any traveling.
