Dali-Approved Melting Watch

Dali may not be alive to give his stamp of approval, but this melting watch from Gadgets and Gear will certainly catch one’s eye. Watch fanatic or not, whether you know how Dali’s imagination worked or not, it’s hard to ignore the Melting Watch. It’s so bizarre when you wear it that it’s cool! Now, […]

Classy Anime Watches

Are you an office worker that likes anime? Or perhaps an anime fan that likes to go to gatherings of the social elite? Are you embarrassed about wearing your brightly-coloured K-ON watch? While a lot of anime watches are nice to wear to show off your pride as a fan, sometimes those timepieces look more […]

James Bond Never Had a Watch This Cool

Heck, even Dick Tracy’s cool video phone watch can’t hold a candle to this bad boy. This concept from designer Alexey Chugunnikov is a combination time-telling device and telephone, doing both things in unexpected, futuristic ways. It looks like something out of a science fiction movie, yet it’s gloriously within reach. And you want one.

Get These Unique Watches and Help Japan

There is something to be said about watches that do not spoon feed you the time. Of course, it is quite convenient to take one look at your watch and see the time in digital format. Analog works just as well, although we do have to learn to tell time that way as kids. Then […]

Tell Time a la TRON

Last week, we saw some really cool accessories – TRON style – courtesy of Robin.  I think most of them were for us girls, though.  Here’s something that will work for anyone, no matter what your gender is: a Tron-inspired watch (or a set of them). Dubbed 7R0N (or s2v2n-R-z2ro-N), the design was dreamt up by […]

The Ever Increasing Watch

There are some people who are simply into watches. While one can only really wear one watch at a time, these people will not hesitate to pick up a new watch that catches their fancy. Most of the time, though, watches such as those made by Breitling, Rolex, and the other big boys are the […]

Five concept watch designs that make you calculate the time

Inspired by the likes of Tokyo Flash watches, I started thinking about some concept watch designs that would force the wearer to work the old grey matter in order to work out what time it was. Some offer more precision that others, and some are easier to read, but all are definitely not your average […]

This Clock is Powered by Human Hands

I must admit I’m a watch geek (more on this later). I’m mostly fond of mechanical watches and chronographs. But here’s something that would surely fancy the mind of anyone interested in timepieces: a human powered clock. Part of Marteen Baas’ Real Time project, the clock shows you a human hand erasing and redrawing the […]

Yo dawg, I heard you liek social media! Well now you can show off your addiction with these social media watches. Only $18.

Casio shows off two new watches: the advanced and the classy

I love watches, despite the fact that I haven’t worn one since the battery died on my last watch over three years ago. Though I don’t need half the functions on the cool watches I’m showing off here (it’s a simple left turn from my bedroom to my computer room, after all, so getting back […]

This wrist phone at least looks great

I already had my rant about the LG wrist wratch phone, but this concept design of a wrist wratch Bluetooth phone (Try saying that 10 times without stuttering!), I must admit looks cool. Designer Pedro Gomez calls it _technically_ a bracelet with watch and phone. When someone calls, the bracelet rings and/or vibrates. The entire […]

Awesome On Air concept watch design

The ON AIR Wrist Watch, designed by Turkey designer Iskender Asanaliev, only has one hand, the hour hand. Additionally the hour hand also indicates the minutes in numbers. I love both concept and ultra-slick design of the watch.Another novelty of the watch is how to set the time: push the button for 5 seconds and […]

Get a real nerdy watch, not a wrist phone

Probably I am the only who thinks this way but the LG Wrist Watch Phone is totally retarded, although cool. Retarded because imagine being in a restaurant and speaking to your watch. WTF! Unless you’re Dick Tracey the watch/phone will make you look like a retard. I had the awesomest watches, even a Swatch The […]

Casio's Atomic Solar Watch

How much better can you get? Seriously, the words “atomic” and “solar” in one phrase – wow! I have never been much of a watch person (watch as in wrist watch) but Casio’s latest release is something that no one can resist. Dubbed the Casio G-Shock MTG-1500, the wristwatch is no ordinary gadget. Coming from […]
