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 written about so many modern digital watches that sacrifice ease of use for cool design (I’m talking to you, TokyoFlash). So it’s a breath of fresh air to see a modern digital that manages to balance looks with ease-of-use.
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.

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.
Here’s a new digital watch I thought really stood out from the crowd. Nixon’s Answer watch comes in a couple of colors, but the bright blue and white one pictured here really caught my eye.
To complement its swimming pool blue case (they call it Sky Blue, but I know better), the Answer features a aquatic blue-backlit LCD screen.
Every time watch importer TokyoFlash reveals another one of their wacky digital watches, it makes my giddy with excitement. So it is with much glee that I bring you their latest watch, which tells time in Morse Code.

The Abacus series of watches has no hands at all.
This timepiece from Swiss watchmaker Urwerk boasts a case that’s made from a specially coated steel that’s virtually indestructible.
