miniman, I saw the explanation and still wonder. No one would actually wear this as a timepiece, only as a gimmicky piece of jewelery.

Count the dots, then multiply some of the dots by 15 then...

So is the watch in the photo upside down or do they expect you to read from the bottom up?

I know a few who would revel in it, and once you are used to it, I think you would instinctively read it. However - it is not for me.
