“What time is it, you ask? Hold on, let me check my watch… Ummmmm…” Things can get really awkward when it takes you a full sixty seconds to give someone the time of day because you can’t figure out which hour the big hand on your watch is pointing to.
Thought you were the only one, huh? Nope, lots of people take a bit of time to read the time, especially when their watches are those super sleek, clean-cut watches that have about half a roman numeral to indicate all 12 of the digits we use to measure time.
Some people are more talented than others when it comes to the art of telling time and can afford to choose the stylish numberless sort of watch-face. Lucky dogs. Some people need the basic compass of numbers – 3, 6, 9, and 12 and they’re good to go. And some of us direly need our watches to spell out every single number 1-12 in order to show any level of competency at that heart-wrenching, panic-inducing moment when a stranger oh-so-innocently asks for the time.
Luckily, whichever category you fall into, WatchesandBeyond covers all the bases with an extensive assortment of all watch-types.
If you need all 12 digits on that watch face, this beautiful Chopard Happy Diamonds Watch with an 18k gold watch face is on-point.
If you’re a fan of roman numerals, this elegant gold-plated steel watch from Frederique Constant is perfect for you:
If you think you’ve got the skill, this Sintra Jubile Ceramos & Blue Sapphire watch from Rado has got 4 diamonds embedded in the face for a beautiful effect.
The Tiffany & Co. Tesoro watch is stunningly simple in its elegance. The large 12 and 6 help indicate where the hour hand is pointing. This watch may present a bit of difficulty to the “time-tellingly” challenged.
Last, we love this beautiful Valentino piece. The black leather strap combined with the black face and black diamonds make quite the sharp impression. Buyer beware though, make sure you can still tell time, because there are no number indicators on this face!
