Pierre Rucci Thermal Time


What in the heck is thermal time? I got this watch at a thrift store several years ago. It has a ceramic Fossil-esque case that makes it look legitimate. It says thermal time on it and has a temperature track on the outside of the time track. I figured it must do something, right? So I took it home, put in a battery and waited. Nothing. It tells time of course, but what about this whole thermal business? Maybe if I heat up the case, the temperature band will change color indicating what temperature it is? Nope. Maybe it’s just broken? I took it apart (of course) and nothing inside but a standard quartz. Disappointing. Regardless, it still looks cool and seems like it’s doing something. If I’m missing it, someone let me know.
