The Tikker: Death Watch

Fredrik Colting invented this “The Happiness Watch'. This is a watch that can certainly motivate everyone to make every minute valuable. This watch is also known as the Tikker Watch or the "death watch". The inventor seek and find a way for people “to cherish the time and the life that we have been given, to honor it, suck the marrow from it, seize the day and follow our hearts. And the best way to do this is to realize that seconds, days and years are passing never to come again.”

The watch needs to be set up and this can be done by filling out a questionnaire with information about your medical history, weight, lifestyle details such as if you drink or smoke and how often you exercise. You will also be asked about the diseases that may run in your family. After all of these information are factored, you will be given a score pertaining to your lifespan including the years that you have already lived. Your current age will be deducted from this score, then the countdown begins.

The Tikker counts not only the years and months of your remaining life, but it also includes every minute and every seconds. The creators – “a group of designers, free-thinkers, lovers and life-aficionados” say “it’s not about how much time you HAVE, it’s what you DO with it. A week spent in love and happiness can be worth more than a year spent in agony. If you knew how much time you had left, wouldn’t you use that time wisely?” adding that “While death is nonnegotiable, life isn’t. The good news is that life is what you make of it – and oh boy can it be beautiful!”

You can get a Tikker of your own by making a preorder that cost $39 for the simple black design or $1,000 for a custom one in pantone color – limited offer only.
