Abacus Watches

These watches use magnetic technology or something like that. The ball moves to and fro across the face of the watch with the flow of the wearer’s arm movements, but as soon as the Abacus reaches a horizontal position, the ball moves as if by magic — or at least by magnetism — to the right point in time. So if you are looking for a stopwatch, this one isn’t it. But, if you just want to know approximately what time it is and care more about the cool design and technology of your watch, then this is the one.
