Shift Hybrid: A Wrist Watch for Automotive Enthusiast

Shift Hybrid is a watch based on automotive engineering featuring elements like disc brakes, speedometers, seat belts, and gear shifts. The materials used are also found in cars. Parts like aluminium, carbon fibre, stainless steel, rubber, and glass. Take a look after the jump and see if you can spot all the automotive influences.
The design utilizes both analog and digital parts. All the gears, rotors and needles are analog but they are controlled digitally to precisely keep time right down to the millisecond. Quite impressive.
Designer: Menghsun Wu.
