Nowadays, having a watch is more of a fashion accessory than ever, since there’s a billion gadgets we carry around daily that could tell us what time it is. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing — having a watch always adds a little class to the wearer (unless it’s a plastic one you got in a Happy Meal as a kid). Anyway, this Slip Watch concept does something so simple yet so brilliant, rotating the timepiece every so slightly so that you don’t have to adjust your arm to read it.

Go ahead — look at your watch, and if you don’t have one, just imagine. Every single time, you either have to cock your head or turn your arm slightly. The Slip Watch instantly eliminates that, and any neck strain associated with it. While it’s still just a concept, we’ll hopefully be seeing these in production soon.
