In this Swiss Angular Momentum model, the main differences from standard analog are:

1. The dial numerals are in reverse order from the "normal" analog. (read counterclockwise). Engraved bezel markers are at the normal analog positions.

2. The whole dial rotates in a clockwise direction and serves as the hour hand, which is otherwise non-existent. (The minute and second hands function as in any other analog.)

3. The hour is read by where a dial numeral, or marker, lines up with the exterior bezel's marker at the 12 o'clock position or, alternatively, where the 12 o'clock marker on the dial lines up with an exterior bezel marker.

4. The minutes are read by where the minute hand lines up with the outer bezel markers rather than where it lines up with the dial markers.

In the blue model, the time is 12:27 (Image by vendor Time Eclectic used with permission)

In the green model, the time is 6:30.

In summary, the hour hand is replaced by a rotating dial.
Yes. But might not work if the numeric dial markers weren't printed in "reverse" order. ;D
