Abacus watches can’t tell time, but look cool

In a prime example of style over substance, Abacus watches (from £70) are timepieces without those bothersome hands that mar an otherwise perfectly good face. Instead, each one has a ball bearing that rolls about inside the casing until you stop flailing about, which then, thanks to the power of magnetism, stops at the correct time. Or a part of it, anyway. Abacus don’t do minute or second hands, you understand.

Well, I don’t either to be honest, but they look great in their pure simplicity. Having style is always an excuse for being late.
