WWW: World's Weirdest Watch

Hmm, well there's something weird for you...

I don't consider myself extraordinarily slow or not capable of thinking fast (and speaking faster =), but sometimes there are moments where you just want to know the time... in this very second, without thinking involved.

Well, Japan, the land where everything (electronic) is possible, gave us a new watch that you actually need an explanation for.
It looks quite cool, to be honest, but how long will it take the owner to answer the question "Sorry Sir, what time is it?"?

"Why?" - do you really want to know? Then try making any sense of the time shown on the watches below:

Yeeeees... Riiiight... O-K... Erm... WHAT?
Yup, that's exactly what I thought. Thankfully, here's an explanation:

The manufacturing company, SeaHope, has other weird models on their website, take a look to find out... =)))

BTW: It's two blocks, two blocks, nine blocks now.

I have seen binary clocks in the math department and the "Pong Watch", but this tops them!
