Hours, Minutes and Seconds Declare Their Independence

Hours, Minutes and Seconds Declare Their Independence
Who says a traditional dial is the only way to display the time on an analog clock? This new timekeeper deconstructs hours, minutes and seconds onto separate clock faces.

Robot Watch Transforms Into Tiny Desk Clock
I’m absolutely in love with these cool metal robot watches. Not only can you wear them on your wrist, they pop out of the band to become mini-clocks you can put on your desk.

Fancy Watches Get the Virtual Treatment

Fancy Watches Get the Virtual Treatment

But for those of you who do take up residence in the insanely popular virtual world, you’ll soon have a way to give your avatar a little more style and class.

Clock Reminds You It’s Time to Shop

Storm Remi Watches: if Looks Could Kill
Normally, I don’t think most analog watches fit in with the “high-tech” aesthetic here at Technabob, but leave it to London’s STORM Watches to prove me wrong. These retro-modern watches really do stand out from the crowd.

Vestal Watches: Analog and Digital Harmonies
I recently came across watchmaker Vestal, who makes original designer watches with a decidedly modern spin. The artists of Vestal use music as their inspiration for their designs, and their music video filled website reinforces this sentiment.

Dice Itpa-220: iPod Tube Stereo on a Budget

Shadow Ss Watch Hides LED Under Analog Dial

This unique men’s wristwatch conceals a little secret beneath its traditional mechanical face. When you press a button on the side of the watch, a hidden LED display reveals itself. The Shadow SS analog/digital hybrid watch has a red 7-segment LED that can either be synchronized with the analog time, or be set to display a second time zone.
