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.

HDDWatch Reformats 1″ Hard Drive into a Wristwatch

HDDWatch Reformats 1″ Hard Drive into a Wristwatch
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.

Arduino Micro Word Clock: Chronocube

Arduino Micro Word Clock: Chronocube
Maker Daniel Rojas came up with an affordable – albeit smaller – alternative to Biegert & Funk’s prohibitively expensive QLOCKTWO word clocks. Daniel made it using an 8×8 LED matrix, an ATMega 328p microcontroller and a DS1307 real time clock.

FES Watch Has an E-ink Screen and E-ink Band

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

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.

Big Gears Wall Clock: Time Grinds by

Big Gears Wall Clock: Time Grinds by
Most wall clocks are really boring. They just hang there with hands clicking around to tell you time. The annoying part of most wall clocks is the second hand that ticks loudly while you try to watch your favorite show or sleep.

Tokyoflash Kisai Satellite X & Satellite X Acetate: Rust Cohle’s Watches

Tokyoflash Kisai Satellite X & Satellite X Acetate: Rust Cohle’s Watches
Tokyoflash has a new batch of Kisai wristwatches. Naturally, the Satellite X and the Satellite X Acetate have odd eye-catching designs, but they’re actually easier to read compared to the company’s other watches. Both designs have three circles of LEDs.

The Genuinely Sexy Asus ZenWatch on Sale Today

The Genuinely Sexy Asus ZenWatch on Sale Today
Smartwatches are cool, mostly because they fulfill our sci-fi fantasies, instead of for any practical reasons, but they’re not without flaws. Most of them, as far as watches go, are pretty bloody ugly. The Motorola Moto 360 isn’t bad, and Apple’s entry into the field is beautiful, even if it is made by a pretentious company that designs its products to be near-impossible to repair.

This NCC-1701 Watch Doesn’t Look Geeky Unless Closely Examined

This NCC-1701 Watch Doesn’t Look Geeky Unless Closely Examined
Geeky watches are fun, but the problem is that they can cross into dorky territory very easily. This new watch from ThinkGeek, however, manages to just look like a sleek, minimalist, modern watch. If it didn’t have “NCC-1701” proudly printed on the face we’d have never guessed that it was a piece of Star Trek geekdom.

ChronodeVFD Steampunk Watch: Time is a Flat Tube

ChronodeVFD Steampunk Watch: Time is a Flat Tube
J. M. De Cristofaro aka Johngineer must be having a great week. He recently shared his custom made wristwatch, the ChronodeVFD, and its simple yet eye-catching design has earned the approval of the Internet, including no less than the cyberpunk lord William Gibson.

Deadpool Clock Keeps You on Time for Pancake Breakfasts

Deadpool Clock Keeps You on Time for Pancake Breakfasts
I’m a big fan of Marvel movies, even if I am unfamiliar with the comic book origins of the franchise. Take Deadpool for instance – all I know of him is what I saw in the X-Men Origins: Wolverine flick.

Android Wear Is So Much Cooler When It’s Running a Game Boy Emulator

Android Wear Is So Much Cooler When It’s Running a Game Boy Emulator
Smartwatches are imminent, but they’re not quite useful enough yet to have become any more than a niche product for hardcore tech geeks, much like Google Glass. Personally, if I were to drop a few hundred dollars on a watch, it would be an analog watch that will be in style for roughly a century, not a tech piece that will be made obsolete in a few months.

Division Furtive Type 50 LED Watch: Time is Light

Division Furtive Type 50 LED Watch: Time is Light
Like TokyoFlash, Canadian watchmaker Division Furtive makes watches that put more emphasis on form than function. The company’s newest watch is the Type 50, a button- and crown-less timepiece that uses light to both display and set the time.
