This hands on this elegant battery powered watch rotate backwards (counterclockwise), just as Leonardo da Vinci wrote. Righties can only read this writing in the mirror, so its known as mirror writing, one of a host of amazing da Vinci inventions. Some lefties can read it without a mirror, and Leonardo used it as a kind of personal code. Imprinted with a portrait of Leonardo Da Vinci. Black wrist band. Quartz movement. Imported.

Righties will find it difficult to read the time, but lefties will find it makes perfect sense!

Note that the stem, used to set the time, is on the right, so while the face is backwards, the watch works best on the left wrist.
  • What makes this watch left-handed?
  • The hands rotate counterclockwise, and the numbers are reversed from standard right-hand reading clocks. Both the numbers and writing around the dial are done in "mirror writing", which most people will have to look into a mirror to read, but which some left-handers can read without a mirror. The portrait is of one of the most famous of all left-handers, the Renaissance artist and inventor Leonardo da Vinci.
  • Note that the stem, used for setting the time, is on the right hand side.
