Here’s a new LED watch that’s sure to draw attention whenever you go to check the time.
The STORM Faze watch features a unique dot-matrix LED display, concealed behind a plastic lens that sort of reminds me of the compound eye of an insect.
This new watch from Germany’s Botta Design can’t be bothered with two full rotations of the hour hand over the course of a 24 hour day.
The Botta UNO 24 uses a single pointy hand that rotates at 1/2 the speed of a normal watch, letting you view all 24 hours of the day without a 2nd time around the dial.
Each of the 24 hours and hash marks on the face of the watch correspond to the position of the Sun in the sky.
Do you long for the days of carrying around a giant sound system on your shoulders? This watch brings back fond boombox memories without the risk of back injury.
Flüd’s Boombox watch looks like a tiny version of the “portable” stereos of days gone by.
Created by Swedish designer David Ericsson, VOID Watches are the embodiment of clean modern design.
Each watch in the new V.01 collection features a bold face design with an off-center grey-on-black LCD screen. According to Ericsson, the V.01’s
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.
I don’t know what it is about these retro-futuristic watches from Japan, but for me they conjure up images of 1980s color vector video games like Tempest or Quantum.
The limited-edition Scope 2 watch uses a special multi-color (RGB) LED display to tell the time.
Despite their bright, energy-efficient displays, OLED (organic light emitting diode) timepieces are still be few and far between. So I was pleased to see another new watch jump on the OLED bandwagon.
The Infinity Apus Dark Force digital watch features a luminescent blue OLED screen, which really pops out from the stainless and black backdrop.
If you’re a Technabob regular, you know I’m a sucker for cool modern watches. I don’t know why – maybe it’s that I got stuck wearing a dorky Casio calculator watch as a kid that makes me want to rebel in my old age.
Created by Italian architect/designer Denis Guidone, these watches work their magic thanks to their minimal modern design.
Looking like something that David Bowie might have worn during while wearing a skin-tight silver jumpsuit during his Space Oddity / Starman phase, the latest digital watch from Diesel definitely makes a bold statement (if you happen to be a 1970s glam rocker).
The DZ7090 not only features a futuristic dot-matrix LCD digital face, but enshrouds it in a shiny patent silver metallic band that’s sure to bring out the Major Tom in you.
This diamond-encrusted LED watch is so madly, deeply, insanely blinged over with diamonds that you can barely see what time it is. In fact, the diamonds cover the face of the watch so you have to read the digital display through a diamond screen.
The watch is a collaboration between high-design and art house Gourmet and the jeweler Christian Tse.
In the market for a modern digital watch that’s looks cool, but is still easy to read? Storm’s Ambition watches might be just what you’re looking for.
Featuring a stealthy face design that looks like some sort of bar code when the watch is dormant, you’d never know the time was hiding beneath its unassuming surface.
Hot off the presses comes the latest über-cool modern watch from the guys over at Tokyoflash. Their latest creation features a reverse LCD display which lets you view the time without the need for pressing any pesky buttons.
The Tokyoflash Negative watch gets its name from its “always-on” inverse LCD display which uses oversize black dot-matrix pixels to reveal the time, day or date.
The watch features a multi-color LED backlight, which lets you quickly flip between one of seven different colors.
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.
The display on the OPUS8 watch might looks like an LCD at first glance, but upon closer examination, the digits are actually rendered by tiny metal plates which rise then retreat into the background.
A hand-wound mechanical movement powers the display, which was inspired by those pin-art displays which you press your hand, face or other object into to leave an impression.
This homemade Pong watch will entertain you with retro gaming moves while informing you of the time.
The idea is inspired by Buro Vormkrijgers and his Pong Clock. You can’t control the game, but rather it’s a Pong game in which every minute the right side scores a point, and each hour the left side scores a point.
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.
While I applaud this concept, I have two concerns which I must raise.
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.
