Klokers Klok-02: A Travel Watch by the Hour

View all 8 Photos

For the frequent flyer, one of the most tedious tasks can be resetting your clocks to the correct time zone. But while most phones and laptops can be updated with a simple touch or click, the old-fashioned wrist watch always makes the process a chore. The usual method is especially irksome because the only hand that needs to be adjusted is hour hand, as most areas of the world have the same minutes and seconds. For years the best solution has been watches with multiple clocks on the face, but this leads to minuscule markings that in a hurry are hard to read.

Its unique face design shows the minutes and seconds within an upper semicircle

Understanding this dilemma, the designers at Klokers have created a novel solution in the form of the Klok-02 Watch. Its unique face design shows the minutes and seconds within an upper semicircle, marked by a visibly striking pair of a circle for the minutes and arrow for the seconds. The hour is then housed in a faux leather case, displaying the number next to the abbreviated city associated with the time zone (e.g. LON for London). This approach makes switching times a breeze, as only the hours need to be adjusted. Plus, the added convenience of listing a city in the time zone helps a jet-lagged traveler ensure they are not making a mistake that could cost them their punctuality. The whole thing is powered by a Swiss movement, and comes with a genuine leather bracelet to match the case. It’s a clever idea, and gives a fresh look to the classic design of a travel watch without sacrificing legibility or style.
