Watches are meant to tell the time, but when you have a watch that is a little unusual then it can be a little harder to tell the time. It is just a matter of which watch you choose and how the time is decidedly displayed in these unusual watched that matters. If you want to make a statement then choosing an unusual watch that fits your personality will help you to do so. Jewelry makers and watch designers can come up with some wild ideas when it comes to watch designs.

1. Harry Winston

The Harry Winston watch allows you to see all the mechanics of the watch. The face plate is nonexistent, but you are able to see all the gears and the designer name very clearly on the front of the watch. There are no markers for numbers or actual numbers, so you have to guess at the time if someone was to ask you for it.
