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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Pebble has announced that it has released the latest firmware for its smartwatch bringing the software to version 2.5. The update brings with it a myriad of fixes and improvements, but the big thing is support for emoji.
Watches can be really cool, and a good watch can elevate a guy’s attire from good to gooooooood. The problem is that really cool ones often , like the Maurice LaCroix Roue Carrée Seconde (my personal favorite), often have really uncool price tags (like the Roue Carree’s $9,900 price tag).
While everyone else is talking about, waiting for or hating on the Apple Watch, Tokyoflash just keeps on keeping on. The watchmaker’s latest release is the Kisai Maze Wood, a wooden version of the Kisai Maze.
Apple today revealed it’s long-anticipated entry into the wearable tech space, with its first ever smartwatch. No longer dubbed “iWatch,” the timepiece is named simply “Apple Watch“. The watch is designed to be the most accurate watch available, incredibly customizable, and work seamlessly with iPhone, health and fitness apps.
Darth Vader was a very serious guy. I can only imagine he would be more than willing to Force choke the crap out of someone for being late. No one on the Super Star Destroyer Executor wore a watch, but if they did I imagine they would have looked something like these Star Wars Imperial Chronometers.
While it’s illegal to spray-paint graffiti in most places, as far as I know, there’s no law against painting with light. And while you’re not going to be creating any masterworks with this spray can, you’ll at least be able to tell the time.
Astrophysicists will probably hate the Ptolemaic timepiece, but if you still believe the Earth is at the center of the universe, you’ll want to grab one.
Regardless of its complete scientific inaccuracy, it’s still kind of cool to watch the stars, planets, Sun and Moon orbiting around as you watch time pass.
