ascending farmer watch

Upon the hour you feel a slight tingle from the watch strap, you glance at your wrist and roll up the sleeve of your shirt to reveal an ornate watchface with two outstretched arms with the hands pointing at the corresponding numerals to tell the time set upon a picturesque landscaped watchface.

As you check the time a small set of chimes can be heard as if bells were being played in the far distance emitting from the watch.

Suddenly the lens of the watch slowly separates and opens outwards and upwards from both sides.

Ascending from the centre, a small delicately sculptured farmer rises slowly upwards with the arms now attached and pointing to the time.The farmer slowly returns to the inside of the watch as the lens closes and returns the farmers arms flat upon the watchface.

At least for now.

       Does this idea provoke annotations which start with the word "Does"?

       Why a farmer and not a construction worker? He DOES have a second hand. His music is the mixture of the gentle ringing of a jackhammer on cement and his own foul mouth.

       How about Amish farmers, who don't say anything. Not even a tick or a tock... COMPLETELY silent, but works hard as hell.
