Last but not least, something that Rafael E. Calderon
expressed best in his post as a reply to my first post of this watch: the hour
disk is really an innovation and not only a gimmick.
I was really amazed that when wearing the watch during the daily walk to the post office, that I actually immediately started reading the time looking at the hour disk below the little triangle at the 60 minute marker. It is really amazing that I - normally wearing analog watches - switched my time reading habits within two hours. Whenever I really want to read the time quickly - those looks do not include the rather contemplating WIS looks at the watch face when we normally forget to read the time too - I use the hour indices on the little disk. And I noticed that our brain is obviously capable of quickly interpreting fractions of the hours, in this picture I would quickly read 01:30 without even noticing the hands.
While most Angular Momentum customers will probably choose this watch for its different looks and feel, to me, that RDS or Revolving Disk System is really a nice horological innovation and not just a gadget. Now I can understand, why RDS was successfully patented and this was to me actually the biggest surprise after wearing the watch for a couple of hours.
I hope you enjoyed the tour and were able to share a bit of my enthusiasm. I would have loved to provide you with crispier pictures, but this series was shot using two Sandoz watch boxes (well I see those more cubic watch boxes have their legitimating too ) with natural daylight and no reflector cards. Even I had my foldable reflector card with me this time, it would have done any good given those thick convex crystals.
