A watch that makes sense! Tiffany East-West

It is a neat design, but I'm so used to raising my wrist up and off to the side, that I wonder if it would be difficult to adjust to the East/West visual of the watch face?

It makes sense for showing someone else what time it is, but I'm not sure I'd like that orientation for my personal use...

I think maybe it would take a day to get used to not for anyone who works at a table or desk seems like the right orientation

Even now when I put my arms up, instead of putting it parallel to the ground if I just put it at a 30° angle to the ground makes it very plausible to read at that orientation. I think the white one isnmy favorite

Ah- I get it, it's aimed at desk jockeys!

That would have made sense to me a few years ago! ;))

I like them but I'm not spending that kinda money on a watch, so hopefully other watches will be made like that.

Ding ding! The only time I think I would ever spend serious money on a watch is if it was solid gold!

That orientation doesn't make sense to me. When I bend my arm so it's almost in front of my body to look at my watch, my wrist is north-south. To use this watch, I'd have to hold my arm straight out in front of me. Perhaps I'm missing something!

Great idea for someone with a compound-fractured arm that makes their wrist jut out at a 90 degree angle.

I could get used to that!
But for $3500, Id rather have a new diamond or a bathroom remodel.

I agree - the orientation of this watch actually seems less practical to me, but maybe to others it works?

eh well the wrist pictures negated any interest in it I might have had. Never mind!

If you hold your arm at a 45° angle its just as much off that orientation as a traditional watch orientation. So in a general sense its not that much of a leap. Or xonsider consider how you hold your phone.
