Telling the time is easy when you know how. But all that big
hand/little hand business will be of no use at all with the ingenious
Ibiza Ride. That's because this incredibly chic wristwatch is a 'Look
ma, no hands!' kind of timepiece, and it's the ideal way to bamboozle
and impress watch snobs in an instant.
Because even if you're the proud owner of a pricey, über-flashy watch,
you'll want to get an Ibiza Ride around your wrist asap since it
displays the time in a completely unique manner. How? Well, long story
short, this sleek rectangular sliver uses three columns of LEDs to
display hours and minutes. The first column represents hours, the
second represents tens of minutes, and the third represents single
minutes. So if seven lights are showing in the first column, two in the
second and three in the third, it's 7:23. The whole procedure is easier
than...er, telling the time.
Reading the date works in the same way. To activate the date mode
simply push the function button twice. The first column represents the
month. The second and third columns represent the day. Easy, huh?
Once you get the hang of it you'll find reading the Ibiza Ride as
straightforward as using a regular watch. In fact, we think it's
easier. For starters there's no mistaking big hands for small hands,
and you won't have to squint to look at digital numbers 'cause there
aren't any - just glowing, easy-to-count lights. But don't for one
minute think that the Ibiza Ride is some sort of novelty watch to be
worn just for showing off. On the contrary, this gorgeously crafted
stainless steel timepiece is built to last and it's water resistant to
We really can't over-emphasize the number of envious looks this
retro-modern masterpiece attracts. Because as well as perplexing
everyone who sees it (except the wearer), the Ibiza Ride looks like
something Buck Rogers might wear when hitting the disco with Twiki.
Best of all, it's unlike any other watch out there. And in the war of
wristwatch one-upmanship, individuality is everything.
