He's wearing two!



So is it some time telling device or just jewelery?

I guess the latter...

I'm sure it's jewelry but since we're on a watch forum I'm sticking to my belief they are watches. A side note, I wonder how all these reliefs came to reside in New York. I'm sure that's an interesting and likely a disturbing story. And probably a quite common story in the world of art and artifacts.

From reddit "Noticed that many Sumerian gods are depicted wearing watches...", they are bracelets representing the sun and divinity.

Looks like they picked up a pretty sweet handbag, too. Must've had a coupon code from Jomashop.
The handbag actually represents heaven, the handle, and earth, the bag. Of course that's the simplified version. I'm sticking to my story about the watches, they're watches!
