Mother nature’s watch
Time in the modern digital reality is moving faster and faster, and as we optimize every second, and try to spare a few minutes every day I wondered if there could be a different scale in timekeeping on our watches.
So I tried to sketch up a different watch. One that synchronize to the rhythm of nature, the seasons and the different times of year instead of endless circles of seconds, minutes and hours. (Guess that won’t work on a digital watch though)
