ways of seeing: wristwatches

a curated digital post

I've always had a wristwatch, more for style than for function; the face of my watch is a long rectangle so spacing is weird between the X and Y axis. Sometimes I can't be certain whether my watch is telling me it is 10 or 11. To be sure, I check my phone.

With the onslaught of handheld digital devices that hold the time, what happens to the wristwatch? 

Such displays of time on mobile devices [and apps] go beyond the ticktock of the grandfather clock and the insistent pulse of the wristwatch, no longer pointing at one moment but indicating all the hours at once.

says THE CLASS OF 2014
...They’ve never recognized that pointing to their wrists was a request for the time of day.
