  1. Hmmm wear a watch that wastes 3-5 seconds reading to get the time, or one that is smaller and tells me the time instantly… easy decision.

  2. Why does it have the word ASS after one? ie oneASStwothreefour etc..

    Is it subliminal message about anyone asking you to tell them time being an ass, since it's going to waste so much your time to tell them?

  3. @Bryon : LOL. Actually it was there on purpose. Let me quote Paul Cooper comment about that word:

    "The extra letters are required so that the screen is completely full of letters. If it was only the numbers, some numbers would be split between two rows making the watch difficult to read. They are also there to help with spacing the words out appropriately. The words have no specific meaning. The word ASS was added for an additional amusing talking point. It seems to be getting different reactions; some people think it's silly, some people think it's funny."
