Eole: the Wind Turbine Watch – just blow in it to see what time it is.

Jens Appelgreen :: – So you’re in the super market and a guy walks up to you. He says, “What’s the time sir/madam?”

Now if you are like most people you will probably pull out a smart phone and read to the man what’s on the screen. But let’s face it; that’s not very classy.

Wearing a watch has, and almost certainly will always have a charismatically classy look. A watch says, “hey, I’m cool (depending on what type of watch you’re wearing of course) and I know how to rock awesomeness on my wrist”.

If the above quote is something you would like to be able to say about yourself then lookey here; queue the Eole concept watch.

Now when that man asks you the time just look at your watch and blow air onto it.

Designer Julien Moise has designed this watch to show you the time when you want it shown. What’s the point of a watch always showing the time, even when you are not interested in knowing the time…..it’s a waste of battery life time.

To tell the time simply blow on the watch and a small turbine spins to show what time of day it is.

Now, the watch has an alarm, plus a weather function, so you know whether to pack your parka. We’re guessing this watch will have a battery since an alarm that only works when you blow on the watch probably won’t work too well if you’re asleep or distracted…….it kind of defeats the purpose.
