Angular Momentum Phenakistoscope Watches – Memento Mori & Little Devil Angular Momentum by wholesalewatches - June 14, 20170 This Halloween I’d like to present you with two creepy watches from Angular Momentum. Creepy yes, but in a more subtle “Swiss way.” The one that creeps me out most is the “Little Devil” watch – with images of a maniacal looking infant laughing over hell fire. But let’s get back to the “phenakistoscope” part of the name. The hell is that you ask? Well this was part of early animation. You’d take some type of cylinder or ring, and place images on it that if seen in a quickly moving sequence, would appear to the eye to move. Please be aware that unless this watch is operating terribly wrong, the disc with the sequential images will not move fast enough for you to see the animation. Rather, it is a wrist watch style homage of these early forms of animated entertainment. The disk moves around the dial once each 12 hours – slowest animation ever! The watches are each 40mm wide in steel “time gallery” style Angular Momentum cases. In addition to Little Devil, there is the Memento Mori watch – which translates into the uplifting message of “remember you will die.” In an almost satirical manner, the names of each of the watches is inscribed in cursive on the black reserve painted sapphire crystal dials. The Breguet style font for the hour numerals completes the classy nightmare look. I want to get one of these Phenakistoscope watches to any prospective parents I know out there. Existing parents should likely opt for the Memento Mori pieces – for obvious reasons. Happy Halloween.
