It might be that in your locale it is commonly taken to mean a purely mechanical watch, but that isn't the same the whole world over.

The "one beam going through a doughnut beam" technique is well known through STED microscopy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/STED_microscopy

STED is a superresolution technique for imaging when using fluorophores.

This is a very nice idea using the technique in a different way for a different application.
