SameTime / Watch


“SameTime” has a triangular surface with contrasting colors and symmetrically arranged hour & minute hands, which enables its users to tell time from either side. It enables its users to watch and tell time more readily and freely for themselves or for others, without the need for checking or confirming the direction before putting on the watch. Further, it facilitates wearing with its elastic watch band made of resilient rubber. Like right-handed users, even southpaw or left-handed wearers can put it on single-handedly and effortlessly.
