Storm Circuit: Modern LED Watch has Retro Spirit
October 2nd, 2007
For some reason, the latest digital watch from London’s STORM features a readout that brings back memories of classic TV shows from my childhood. I’m not sure if it’s more reminiscent of a Cylon Centurion helmet from Battlestar Galactica, or the dashboard from KITT from Knight Rider. Either way, it’s still pretty retro-cool.
The Circuit Watch uses a pair of tall stacked LED segments to illustrate the current time. The bars on the left show the current hour, while the bars on the right display appear to be split into two sections, one which displays tens of minutes and the other which shows individual minutes.
The watch features a sleek, stainless steel case and a matching metal band. STORM offers several different accent colors for the protective crystal, including mirrored, black, red, blue and brown. However, the LEDs always remain red, no matter which version of the watch you choose. The Circuit Watch is available in limited quantities from STORM’s online shop and costs £109.99 (appx. $225 USD).
