The latest watches from renowned French designer Philippe Starck may look incredibly modern at first glance, but their roots are firmly grounded in analog technology.
Starck’s new Wrapped watches feature an electroplated face which conceals almost the entirety of the watch hands.

Designer electronics firm Bang & Olufsen has officially announced the release of their new MP3 player, the Beosound 6. As is usually the case with B&O gear, it looks good and has exceptional build quality. As is also the case with their products, it’s extremely pricey, with an MSRP of $600.
One of the latest trends in the interior design world is fireplaces which use modern ethanol-based fuels. While they don’t give off a tremendous amount of heat, they look amazing, are virtually odorless, and don’t require external ventilation.
For some reason, the latest digital watch from London’s STORM features a readout that brings back memories of classic TV shows from my childhood. I’m not sure if it’s more reminiscent of a Cylon Centurion helmet from Battlestar Galactica, or the dashboard from KITT from Knight Rider.
These dramatic new watches from fashion house Diesel are a couple of only a handful of watches to embrace OLED display technology. The watches feature a bold case design that provides a welcome home for the clean, minimal OLED screen.

I’ve always been enamored of Phillipe Starck’s contemporary watch designs. Now the prolific designer is readying yet another beautiful watch for Fossil’s S+ARCK line.

Remember those puzzles that had tiny steel balls that you had to try to get into little holes? Here’s a series of watches out of Germany that remind me of those favorites from my childhood.
The Abacus series of watches has no hands at all.
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.
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.
Whether you’re a dork, nerd, geek or even a dweeb, I think you’ll be looking pretty cool walking around with this cool digital watch.
Nixon’s $120 Metal Dork Watch features a hard-lined modern stainless steel case and band, along with black metal accents.

I was over on the Fossil website earlier today and stumbled onto this image of a new series of OLED (organic light emitting diode) based men’s watches that hasn’t yet been released.
From the looks of the picture, the watches will come in stainless and leather finishes, and will have a cool multi-colored display.
