Istanbul-based Antrepo design industry took the classic analog radio tuner and gave it a sleek makeover with the time tuner alarm clock.
Instead of frequencies, the scale on the clock’s face has the hour marks arranged in a line.
Feeling musically inclined, but haven’t the time or knowledge to write sheet music? Now you can produce your own sonic creations simply by doodling on a piece of paper.
Designed by Adafruit (in collaboration with Jay Silver), Drawdio is an analog synthesizer circuit that straps to any soft-leaded pencil, and lets you crank out electronic sounds while you sketch.
This over-the-top wall clock has way more gears than it really needs – but it’ll definitely draw stares from anyone who tries to tell time with it.
Homeloo’s Jumbo Gear Clock has not 2, 3 or even 10 gears.
Being such a tech geek, I have a tendency to gravitate towards digital watches. But every once in a while I’ll stumble onto an analog that catches my eye.
Designed by Italo Fontana, the Welder K24 is about as macho looking a watch as you’ll find.
This is a frame that’s actually a real frame but it looks like a digital frame. Sort of. I’m confused!
The frame is made by Irina Blok. It’s a wooden frame with a hand silkscreened design, made to look like an Apple doc screen.
The Gakken SX-150 is a little analog synthesizer kit that came packaged in a recent issue of a Japanese DIY science magazine. Now, these funky mini synths have started to show up around the globe, leaving all sorts of interesting beeps, blips and squeals in their wake.
A while back, I came across an intricate analog clock that used mechanical parts to produce a simulated digital display. Now it appears that there’s a miniature version of the same concept present in a high-end designer watch from jewelry artist Harry Winston and watchmaker Frédéric Garinaud.
I was looking for a gift at Diesel and came across these sweet new (albeit behemoth) watches that have not one, not two, but FIVE faces to handle your different time zones.They’ve got a spot for LA, NY, London, Paris, and Tokyo.
Nixon is coming out with yet another awesome watch. The Rotolog RePly watch is inlaid with reclaimed skateboard parts.
This is recycling at it’s best. Thin strips of reclaimed skate decks are artfully layered to create a unique and colorful watch.
Maybe I’m just too geeky, but I have a tendency to be drawn to ultra-modern digital watches. But sometimes there’s nothing like a good, old-fashioned analog dial. At least the guys over at Nixon are thinking a little outside the box with their latest analog watch design, the fashionably geeky R1G1.
When I think of 2001: A Space Odyssey, it usually conjures up imagery of HAL 9000’s glowing red light, the strains of Also Sprach Zarathrustra, and dead astronauts launched silently into space.
But the guys over at Studio Electronics used the film as inspiration for the design of their new Omega Orion synthesizer.
Feeling a little blue today? Green with envy? Why the heck shouldn’t your wristwatch match your mood? Now it can, thanks to this new multi-color LED watch from Ohsen.
Just press the top button to cycle through 7 different backlight colors – perfect for color-coordinating your outfit or your state of mind.
While Japanese watch importer Tokyoflash is known for their offbeat electronic watch designs, this time they’re hitting the market with a bunch of new contemporary watches which are firmly grounded in the mechanical age.
The latest watches in their new Nekura series feature non-traditional analog dials, each of which possess a Space Age charm like something that might have found its way onto the set of 2001:A Space Odyssey.
Here’s a clock for people who are perpetually tardy, and want to stay that way. All of the digits on the dial of this wall clock have fallen off of the face, causing a major numeric pile-up at the bottom.
This amazing clock combines the 7-segment look of a modern LED or LCD clock, but messes with your head by making the digits come to life with a mechanical movement.
Designed and realized by RISD BFA student Alvin Aronson, the D/A Clock is a clever mash-up between the digital and analog universes.
It’s been a while since I brought you guys any cool new watches. It’s not for lack of trying, but there just hasn’t been much that’s hit my desk that really caught my eye. So I was pleased when I came across these, the latest analog timepiece from the guys over at Nixon.
