Bluebeard’s primitive sword-based chronometer.
Then for a long time, nothing happened. Sure, there was the invention of digital timepieces, and atomic clocks, but did any of them generate the unbridled enthusiasm and celebratory attitude of the original chronometer?! No! People were never passionate about digital watches. Partly due to the mass production and rise of the military/industrial/tourism complex, popular demand for Old World chronometers fell sharply. But after years of disinterest, Roboshrub Inc. is bringing analog clocks back into vogue with our brand-spanking-new Handless Watches.
It keeps time like there’s no tomorrow!
Yes, not only are these clocks not digital, but to show how hardcore we are, they don’t even include hour, minute, or second hands. In fact, we removed the entire internal mechanisms to control such minutia. This allowed us to reduce the gross weight of the product and minimize its production cost, while simultaneously allowing us to increase its list price by a factor of a brajillion (we marked up the cost so high that science had to come up with a way to explain it).
