"History records the first wristwatch as one worn by Queen Elisabeth in 1572. Since then watches have come in every size, shape, style and ornamentation. During the 1800s, pocket watches with their elaborate chains were status symbols for men. Real men didn’t wear wristwatches until brazilian aviator pioneer Alberto Santos Dumont ordered one made for him by Cartier 1904. A Bulova wristwatch was Charles Lindbergh’s timepiece on his flight across the Atlantic.
Thermochromic table by Jay Watson
imagine banging someone on that table
imagine being home alone and seeing imprints on that table
Imagine having a friend sit at that table for a long while, but when they get up there’s no imprints at all.
What if you got up after trying to console a crying friend, and found that you had no imprints… and they were crying because they missed you?
aaaah it was a cool table now it’s a horror/drama story
