Upward Time / Watch

Upward Time
I designed an unusual, yet fun watch using the principles of buoyancy.
Commonly, when you check the time with a wrist watch, you have to look at the watch at the 90 degree angle to get the best look at it. Therefore, you have to stop whatever you were doing to lift your arm up and check the time.
This wrist watch is in a form of a tube that is filled with water.
Due to buoyancy, the watch pieces will float up the water tube, making it easier to check out the time.
