Timex unveils the Nail Watch :: A revolutionary watch

It's time you are made aware of a simply superb and revolutionary watch from Timex - called the Nail Watch. Yes, it sits on your finger nails. This new watch will allow you to get the Time on your nails!!

There have been many different types of futuristic and concept watches with strange shapes and design from many manufacturers but none as unique as this. To begin with the Nail watch is a device that can be worn on the thumb. Till date you may have never seen a watch that can be worn on the thumb(anyone who told you so would have been considered dumb) but times are going to change thanks to Timex. Timex has collaborated with a leading design firm called Core77 to design this watch. The watch was showcased in a recently held global design competition called '2154: the future of time design'. BTW, the watch is code named as TX54 concept which was a runner up in the competetion.

Moving on to more details about its functionality. The watch sports a translucent body. The smooth flow design blends seamlessly with your nail while a selection of text color options and a glow feature activating on command make it supremely functional as well. You'll just have to press the end of your thumbnail and lo the watch will light up for you.

I feel it's a perfect blend of appearance, user interface, and technology - makes it a great package! Also, I feel that the nail watch passes most standards of modern design with flying colors thanks to its functional and minimalistic design. It's a watch that'll truly make a fashion statement and is also chic and has a touch of Geeky style as well. Well, the only downside of this watch is that it is disposable. Though it is quite innovative with a minimalistic build and design, but it won't last long on your fingers.

As for now no official details about the availability neither the price of this watch has been released by Timex. But since it is tiny and disposable, I don't expect the price to be high either.
