Dave Prince, an Industrial Designer from Saint Paul, MN, created the Jormungand, a Norse mythology inspired concept watch that has only the hour hand represented by a sliver of light. Granted it might take more than just a casual glance to figure out the time, but the overall effect is stunning.

Jormungand - The concept behind Jormungand is from Norse mythology. Jormungand is a serpent that is large enough to encircle the earth and hold onto his own tail. As the story goes, when Jormungand lets go of his own tail the earth will end. The forms of Jormungand are about eternity and time flowing back into itself, hence the helical disc shapes that make up the hour and minute "hands." I designed this as an internal project for Integrated Design Solutions.
