Has anyone made a clock or watch like the Aztec calendar but for our current calendar system? I'm thinking of concentric dials with seconds in the middle, then a ring for minutes, etc. You then read the time by reading in from the 12 o'clock position.

Every six or seven months, I go to Watches dot com to contemplate buying a Klokers ...

And while I was there grabbing this picture, I noticed another brand they carry, Anicorn.

Not sure if this is the kind of layout you're interested in. In the 1970s, there was a brief flurry of mechanical "digimatic" readers ... mine is a Caravelle hand-winder w/a jump hour (meaning the hour instantly clicks over at 00:59:59). I'd love to have a skeleton dial on this watch ...

My Caravelle is a pretty dull variation on the theme ... check this thread for some really cool examples. It's a mix of jump hours and mechanical digital readers. There are numerous digimatics with the time-telling oriented at 12, which is probably closer to what you're asking for.

If you really want to get into the Aztec vibe, check out this one from De Bethune.

Insanely cool, but a bit over my budget range at $300k (probably only $200k at Jomashop).

Interesting thread, will be looking forward to other suggestions.

Unless it powered by blood of sacrifices it's not true Aztec watch. Also it requires high priest to wind it up!
