Looking for a truly unusual watch? These geeky new watches from Hong Kong look sort of like those Casio calculator watches, but without the LCD screen. The Click Keypad watch actually uses the numbered keys on the front of the watch to tell time instead of for doing math.
Just push any number 0 through 9 on the watch, and it’ll blink out the current time using small LEDs mounted into the face of each button. The display supports both 12- and 24-hour time modes. A press of the pound sign shows the date, using the same blinking LED method.
The chunky buttons are supposed to be reminiscent of a computer keyboard, but to me they look more like an old pushbutton phone. Either way, it’s definitely a unique design, and I’m pretty sure the guy standing next to you won’t be wearing one.
You can get the Keypad watch in dark blue or ivory with blue LEDs, brown or black with white LEDs, or grey with red LEDs. I particularly like the brown and grey ones as they look very militaristic to me.
They’re available now at Watchismo now for $89.99 (USD) each. Just don’t try to do any math with one – you will fail.
