Auto Setting Analogue Watch


Radio controlled Exact time without resetting

I’ve got an alarm clock that automatically sets itself to the correct time via some form of radio control. This is the first time I’ve seen the same technology in a watch and an analogue watch to boot.

The AW200 Braun watch looks like a regular 2 handed watch but instead of having to fiddle with a little knob to change the time it will do it for you. Information is very sparse but I’m guessing you press a button and watch the hands automagically adjust to show the correct time.

The watch is available at Questodesign for 352.10 euros, though a bit more information on the device would be nice.

extremely expensive in my opinion… these watches have been around for years, i own one from a shabby brand myself, and it works just fine… i bought it from germany tho, and romania is quite out of reach of the radio emitter :-s my desk watch does synchronise with the radio, but that watch doesn’t… so i only wear it in germany 🙂

a better-looking one than this one is regularily on sale in Aldi in Germany for around 40 euros, and, as i said, they work perfectly..

My Junghans Mega Star (also an analogue watch) is exactly 9 years old and can do the same…

Also there are some radio controlled watches around that actually look good. Just do a google image search for “Junghans Mega”. (Junghans = the company and Mega = the the first word of all their models that are radio controlled be it alarm clock, wrist watch or whatever) Oh man, when I was little I always wanted to have the one ceramic casing and the solar panel behind the hands. However: 999 DM was slightly out of reach for my elementary school pocket money of 2 DM per week.
