YES watches - based out of California - produce some of the most functionally interesting timepieces around. The company is decidedly boutique and produces a range of astronomical calendar watches with real utility for a lot of different types of people. Scientists, photographers, movie makers, and others find these watches to be indispensable tools. Understanding how these timepieces work is only a challenge until you figure out what the dial means. After that you come to appreciate the clever display of time and data that is unlike anything else. I've owned a Yes timepiece for about 7 years now and have yet to see anything quite like it.
The YES Inca is one of the brand's flagship timepieces and is available in steel or titanium in a few styles. Here is your chance to win one. The watch case is 48mm wide with a style that mixes classic with "digital." Allow me to explain the dial. The single analog hand is a 24 hour hand showing the time. You have a digital time read out as well for a more precise reading. The reason the analog hand is important is that it works in collaboration wit the pie-chart style dial that shows you sunrise and sunset times. Using the hand you can visually see how much light you have left or when the sun will come up. The watch takes into consideration both the calendar information and your location to display these sunrise and sunset times. This merely scratches the surface of the astrological information the watch provides - most important doing so in an easy to understand and intuitive manner. This is a very cool niche watch and we are delighted to offer this YES Inca timepiece giveaway on aBlogtoWatch. The winner will receive a YES Inca 203.4 model, but an alternative version may be available should the winner prefer a different Yes Inca model. yeswatch.com
