The watch is gold, but that's all we can tell

We certainly can't tell the time, anyway.

Tech Digest

The only thing surprising about this watch is that it didn't come from Tokyoflash, the site known for such indecipherable gems as the " Jive Turkey ," the " Pleasure Seeker " and the ever-popular " Pimpin' Ain't Easy " series.

But it certainly could have, for it seems equally baffling. As Tech Digest says, the "Guru" timepiece from Black Dice Industries has LEDs positioned in a "peculiar, eye-bending pattern." If you do manage to figure out how to read this $250 watch, though, you can take it diving up to 50 meters.

In an odd way, though, we appreciate the monochromatic style of the gold Guru. If we're going to be confused by a watch, we'd just as soon not have a bunch of colored lights flashing at us the whole time.
