One thing that I’ve started to expect from all of this LEGO merchandise is that it usually looks cheap and easy to throw away. This doesn’t hold true for Pop Hours, Jean Charles de Castelbajac’s (aka “JC/DC”) latest watch.
The Pop Hours is inspired by classic LEGOs, with each of the links of the chunky strap looking like a LEGO brick. The buttons are touch-sensitive and if you look for them, you won’t be able to find them, since they’re masquerading as LEGO bumps. The oversized dot-matrix display can scroll the time, date, and a message, which is pretty standard for these kind of digital watches. While the product description says the display is LED, from what I can tell, it’s actually LCD (red-on-black, or also available in the more traditional black-on-grey.)
Pop Hours watches are available from Watchismo for $143(USD) and come in 11 different styles and colors.
