The Type 46 watch by Division Furtive is a dual linear movement electromechanical watch. Built from scratch, (movement and casing) the production of this watch is limited to only 46 units. The watch tells time only when looked at and understands light signals that come from your mobile phone or computer screen for configuration.

When the watch is in reading mode, meaning in front of the user and at and angle of about 45°, the cursors quickly move to show you the current time. At this point, the upper cursor shows the hours and the lower cursor the minutes. Type 46 sports no buttons. In order to activate the secondary functions, the user must tap (or double-tap) the front sapphire crystal.

Other features: The watch can be set by light signals from your smartphone / computer display. Programming device must be a recent smartphone or LCD screen (some screen calibration/adjustment may be required -- so far over 20 different iPhone/Android/Blackberry/LCD makes and models have been tested) and must be web-enabled. Because of this, the watch can support advanced calendar features like moon phases and automatic date change (including leap-year calculation). The watch can also be set by using the third scale on the back of the watch and the tap/double-tap gestures.
