Watch Wysocan 0.5Hz
Time is like that - both point AND duration. This is how it can bend and warp. A week, a second, a season: all are specific and discrete, but none are the same. The present can be cut to any number of lengths, from a single vibration of a cesium atom to the display cycle of a digital watch.
Discover the Dexter Sinister Watch Wysocan 0.5 Hz. This reverse-engineered Casio digital timepiece has a tiny computer inside, which has been reprogrammed to slowly render the current time from left to right across its liquid crystal display, completing 1 cycle every 2 seconds. Reading this watch requires more attention than usual.
The seven segments of each digit are lit one by one across its display, and this speed may be adjusted until you and your watch are in tune. Watch Wysocan 0.5 Hz was adjusted by Dexter Sinister and produced by Halmos, New York (US).

Pretotyping helps you to fail … but fast enough and cheaply enough that you have time and resources to try something different. A pretotype is a partially mocked-up of the intended product or service that can be built in minutes, hours or days instead of weeks, months or years

Swatch chief executive officer Nick Hayek confirmed the watchmaker has talked to several companies about their wearable products, but he is not interested in forging a partnership with any group. Hayek says his reluctance to work with Apple and similar companies comes from his desire to protect Swatch’s advancements in ergonomic design, longevity and battery life, but he also has been critical of the iWatch, proclaiming publicly the smartwatch won’t be “the next revolution” for Apple. […] Jean-Claude Biver, president of Watches and Jewelry at LVMH, claims Apple unsuccessfully tried to poach employees from his Hublot brand as well as from other manufacturers who make precision parts for these luxury watches. — Swiss Watchmakers Rebuff Apple’s Partnership and Hiring Advances
