I like Star Wars, I like LEGO, and I like watches. These LEGO Star Wars watches over at ThinkGeek are the trifecta of geeky time telling. Each watchband is made from LEGO links and is adjustable to fit smaller wrists.
This awesome Nixon watch didn’t make the Kessel run in 12 parsecs, but could help you time it – in hours, minutes, and seconds. Yes, now you can put the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon right on your wrist, with the Nixon Sentry SS SW Millennium Falcon edition.
if you really have trouble waking up to a conventional alarm, maybe you should try something different. Perhaps you need something like the Pavlok. It’s wearable accessory that you control using your smartphone or tablet computer, and can be used to deliver a small electric shock.
Oh Japan, you never fail me with your oddness and yummy foods. This time out we have a handcrafted watch that hides lunch in its watch face. It might not have enough food to fill you up, but it is very cool and I want it.
Last month, we checked out a 3D printed sundial that mimicked a digital display. Here’s another clever timepiece courtesy of Thingiverse member Christoph Laimer – a mechanical watch with a tourbillon.
With the exception of its fasteners – pins, screws and washers – all of the watch’s parts were 3D printed.
Azimuth’s SP-1 Crazy Rider watch is clearly designed for the motorcycle enthusiast. It has a motorcycle-style chain drive at its heart. The chain is wrapped around a pair of sprockets on the dial and that’s what drives the whole thing.
This watch is for serious hardcore, no-nonsense, complete a Super Mario Bros. speed-run in 4 seconds, Mario fans. Everyone else should turn back now, because this watch is crazy expensive and will just leave you feeling sad that you don’t have a spare $18,950(USD) to buy one.
Remember that cool watch that Ripley wore in Aliens? It’s the Seiko Giugiaro 7A28-7000 and it is being reissued for a limited run. I always remembered that watch because it had a cool futuristic look. It was designed by famed car designer Giorgetto Giugiaro – who also designed the DeLorean DMC-12 among other things.
I thought smartwatches were pretty smart already. I love not having to dig my phone out of my pocket to see who is calling and if I want to talk to them. Thanks to a new technology that was developed by scientists at Disney Research and Carnegie Mellon University, smartwatches are set to get lots smarter.
A few months ago, we featured Instructables employee DJ aka Aleator777’s Apple II Watch. He recently shared another impressive retro watch, one that’s arguably more useful than the current Apple Watch. He calls it the Communicator Watch, because it’s also a GSM cell phone.
I think we just found the most expensive new piece of Star Wars merchandise yet. If the $28,500 sticker price shocks you, at least they’re throwing in a pair of cufflinks for free. So that makes it totally worth it.
The DRIVE watch is as manly as wristwatches get. One look at this timepiece, and there is no question about it. This watch was made for a man. It’s all about speed and power. There is no mistaking Gus Petrikas’ design concept for anything other than what it is.
If you can’t stand spiders, you might want to pass on this creepy yet amazing spider-inspired timepiece called the Arachnophobia. It was created by luxury watchmaker MB&F, because why not?
It basically looks like a giant mechanical spider that runs on the power of your soul.
The Knights of the Round Table Watch is so awesome you’ll swear that Merlin created it using dragon’s breath. It was made by watchmaker Roger Dubuis. I guess it beats a Lady of the Lake watch, because this one isn’t wet all of the time, while it tries to get you to take a sword every hour on the hour.
Watchmaker Analog Watch Co. takes advantage of the smartwatch craze to drum up some publicity with what is most probably an April Fools’ joke. It’s called the Ant Watch, a small ant farm in the shape of a wristwatch.
