Time-aid watch syncs with clocks near and far

Concept watch is capable of displaying clock faces around the world via a live satellite feed.

Now here's a concept timepiece that could literally stand the test of time.

The brainchild of designers Christophe Koch and Lea Kobeli, Time-aid is a custom-made wristwatch that relies on the imaginary Timex clock network. In short, it's capable of displaying clock faces around the world via a live satellite feed. If you are in London, you could be looking at the Big Ben on your wrist, or the tower clock at the Star Ferry terminal if you are in Hong Kong.

The solar-powered concept is waterproof up to more than 16,000 feet and makes use of a wraparound assembly that's purportedly indestructible. That's not all. You also get to tattoo your name and birth date to make Time-aid a personalized timepiece.

Of course, don't expect this to be available soon, but with the Time-aid scoring a big win at the "Timex2145: The Future of Time" competition co-sponsored by Timex and design blog Core77, we figure someone at Timex could be looking to bring this into production sooner than you think.
