Now, you might think a watch without the minute hand would be useless and reverse-engineering. However, there are still fashionable models of watches that have only an hour hand, not to mention many older clock towers high above cities across the world. The UNO one-hand watch has just that — one hand. It also has more detail in the sense of marks for every five minutes while at the same time lacking the clutter of an extra hand, dial or logos. Telling the time within an accuracy of just a few minutes feeds into the watch’s philosophy and simplistic approach. Why should a traditional mechanical watch tell you the exact time? Uno itself asks the question, “Do you really need such exact times as 3:03 p.m. or 10:39 a.m. in your everyday life? Wouldn’t ‘just after three’ or almost a quarter past 11′ be entirely sufficient?”Other watches also have gone on sans minute hand, allowing for a sleeker, old-school look. However, they all trace their roots back to the original sundials which kept people ready and on time — albeit back when we weren’t in such a rush.
