Can the design of a watch affect how you view the passing of time? That’s the basic idea behind the stylishly unique Slow Jo 24-Hour One Hand Watch.
Forget about all the bells and whistles that let the ultra-sleek, hi-tech watches do everything except fetch the morning paper and call in sick for you because the Slow Jo strips things down to the very basics. As a matter of fact, there are so many things removed from the design that this watch only has one hand.
If you’re familiar with military time, the learning curve won’t be very steep. When the lone watchhand is on the 14, it’s 2:00PM. Each little hashmark between the numbers covers fifteen minute increments.
There are a variety of styles to choose from, but each one sticks with the sleek, trimmed-down style that makes this watch stand out.
Slow Jo 24-Hour One Hand Watch
slow watches were created to shift the way people read time. So rather than focusing on the second or the minute we have produced an instrument that measures the moment.
slow does not describe a speed…. It’s a mindset that most of us somehow lost. As a result of our busy lifestyles, we often forget that we actually have a choice of how to live. The slow watch (we named it slow Jo) is a subtle reminder that time is the most precious thing we have so we should enjoy everything we do and stop chasing every minute.
In order to be a true symbol of this idea, the slow watch has only one hand that rotates once every 24 hours. It actually moves at half the speed of a normal watch, but allows you to see the progress of your entire day at a glance. This slow way of showing the time is made possible by using a Swiss precision GMT movement that actually has 4 hands and a date (the Ronda 505.24 Swiss Made), but to keep you focused we simply left out the other 3 hands.
