Part watch, part cuckoo clock, Gerald Genta’s Arena Metasonic Watch chimes either the exact time or regular intervals using immensely complex yet purely mechanical means.

Time flies in the face of tradition with the TX 830 Linear Duo Chronograph, which sports a vertical line for measuring minutes; too much to handle? It still features an old-school circular face.
