Melchior Mechanical Timekeeping Robot: Roboclock
I’m certainly not a timepiece connoisseur; I like my Pebble smartwatch and that’s enough for me. I have seen some of those high-end mechanical watches though, and I very much like the idea of a watch that has lots of exposed gears.

Felt Apple Watch: Force Touch

Felt Apple Watch: Force Touch
No matter what you think of the Apple Watch, it’s definitely got a distinctive look – especially the user interface. For those of you jumping on the bandwagon, you’ll have to wait until the end of April before you’ll be able to wear one.

Binary Watch with Bare PCB & Ribbon Cable Strap: Smarter Watch
While the rest of the world is voicing their want, disgust or lack of an opinion on the Apple Watch, a nerdy watch made by one man has become so popular he quickly sold out of his initial stock and had to outsource the assembly of the succeeding batches.

Blub Uno Clock Displays Time with One Nixie Tube
We’ve seen our share of Nixie tube clocks, but the Blub Uno is different. This is a clock that displays time with just a single Nixie tube. One tube, many possibilities.

Leatherman Tread Puts a Multitool on Your Wrist

Leatherman Tread Puts a Multitool on Your Wrist
A long time ago, I bought a Leatherman multitool that has a pouch you are supposed to attach to your belt. I found quickly that I don’t like things on my belt and stopped using it.

Montblanc E-Strap: A Smartwatch That Hides Behind a Real Watch

Montblanc E-Strap: A Smartwatch That Hides Behind a Real Watch
If you like watches, you probably have strong feelings about smartwatches. On one hand, you’re probably in favor of watches that do as much as possible, even if it’s not something you’d use (what lunar phase is it?),

Plug & Feather: Stone Face Watches at a Reasonable Price

Plug & Feather: Stone Face Watches at a Reasonable Price
Making watches out of unusual materials is quickly becoming a trend. The wood face watch is very much a thing, and I’ve seen a number of all wood watches. I like a number of the ones with wood faces, and I’ve even liked one or two of the all-wood designs, despite the general clunkiness of most of them.

We’ve featured a variety of clocks made from hard drives. It turns out you can make a wristwatch out of a hard drive as well. Watchmaker Jean Jerome used the obsolete 1″ hard drive aka Microdrive as the base for his HDDWatch.

FES Watch Has an E-ink Screen and E-ink Band
I went for years without wearing a wristwatch. I could just pull my smartphone out of my pocket and see what time it was. The larger my smartphones became, the more of a pain they were to pull out of my pocket, particularly when driving or sitting down, so I went back to a watch.

Star Trek Starship Wall Clock: We Need More Time, Captain!

Star Trek Starship Wall Clock: We Need More Time, Captain!
This Star Trek wall clock boldly goes where no clock has gone before. Assuming that spot on your wall has never had a clock, anyway. This brushed metal clock has a dozen vintage Action Fleet Micro Machine starships indicating the hours, with DS9 in the center.

Laser Watch: Pew O’clock

Laser Watch: Pew O’clock
Unlike most of his creations, one of inventor Patrick Priebe’s latest weapons is discreet. It’s a digital wristwatch equipped with a powerful laser. It’s not as fancy as the similarly-equipped Omega watches that James Bond has worn a couple of times, but it is real and is just as sneaky.

Back to the Future Flux Capacitor Watch Will Leave You Flummoxed
As one of its April Fools pranks this year, ThinkGeek made a mockup of a USB car charger that looks like the flux capacitor from Back to the Future. Fans loved it so much that ThinkGeek made it a real product.
