How to wear six watches at one time?  2 Comments


When I saw the Icelink Ambassador, the first thing that came to my mind was this is the kind of over designing that just does not make any sense. This is a watch with six dials and six movements. Unfortunately the brand's homepage (click on the image to get there) does not mention if its mechanical or quartz movement.

Why would any reasonable person wear a huge six movement watch for six time zones while a good GMT or Worldtimer can do the same job? Well, I guess there will be some who would buy this model just because its different from anything else in the market.

The hidden cost however is - when the watch needs servicing or battery replacement. How about when it needs to be wound or adjusted to the right time? With six crowns this watch will need some effort from its owner.

I hope this kind of approach to designing watches will not become a trend with the important brands.
