binary watch

Anyone has one binary watch?
They look cool in pictures but I never have one close to me so I do not if they are nice. Do you know if they sell them in any shop around Zurich? I will like to go to the shop and have a look.

Love it. The website explains how to tell the time. It's math and thinking but I am going to check it out next time I'm at the airport. I didn't see the prices, though.

Re: binary watch

So, where in Zurich can I buy them? I do not like amazon without previous real vision on my hands. I want to see how they really look.

Re: binary watch

I have a Matrix Binary, never wore it, I was too stupid to figure it out. New condition, boxed with instructions. If someone wants it I'll mail it to you free of charge if it makes you happy. PM me.
