Is it a watch? Is it a phone? Well, the Zihotch Retro Phone Watch isn’t really either.

Straight out of Japan (you might have guessed that), the Zihotch Retro Phone Watch by Maywadenki doesn’t actually show the time. Instead, you have to dial ‘117’ on your wrist, which will prompt the time to be spoken to you via the speaker. Dial a wrong number and you’ll just get ‘We are sorry, the number you have dialed is not in service. Please check and call again.’ You can even get it to give you an alarm call in the morning as a bonus.

The watch is now on sale at US-based site Audiocubes, so I’m guessing it has been re-worked for the language. You can pick it up for $79.99 (around £40).
