Personally I find the watches from The One to be among the nicest. Here is the Slim Square. The display is a bit hard to read, binary as it is. The trick is that the left-hand side shows the hours and the right-hand side minutes. Then just add up to get the hours and the minutes.

Lexon's E8 is a bit simpler. It has been created by a designer and is supposedly patented. Time is shown in a kind of decimal system. The two columns to the left show the hours and those to the right indicate the minutes. Just simple counting. That should be simpler than adding, at least if you are short on time and wonder if the train is late or not.

I must admit that I favor morse code for the ear rather than for the eyes. With a little practice it is so much faster. Therefore I have recorded the time also - just press the image. The world record is about 75 word per minute, where one word is 5 letters. My recording runs at a mere 21 words per minute.

All the work I put into learning morse code some years ago gave me one extra point in the geek test which I just recently took. My score was 17.89668% and therefore I am quite a normal geek. (For real geeks there cannot be too many digits after the decimal point it seems).

Here are some questions to the nerds and geeks among the readers, assuming that if you have read as far as this you for sure qualify as one:

- There must be many more beautiful, nerdy and special watches that I could have included here, so I welcome suggestions!

- How much do these watches really show? Complete the poll below!
