You – or at least your waist – will certainly be the center of attention with this humorous belt from German brand Bless. The belt is actually made of two strips of leather, which serves as the straps for the watch.
While I initially thought that this watch was basically a touch-enabled timepiece, it’s actually something different. Samuel Jerichow completely minimizes the essence of a watch down to three dots. Thanks to advances in tactile displays, this watch could be feasible.
This unique watch from Tokyoflash tells time with words instead of numbers or hands. The always-on LCD watch was originally submitted by a 15-year old Canadian and Tokyoflash made it into reality. Tynan Mayhew submitted this design last year and it’s now available for all, through Tokyoflash’s online store.
I think watches are the most popular accessory there is. First of all, they’re functional. They tell you the time primarily, while some models even display the date, the temperature, what day of the week it is, and so on and so forth.
There’s something to be said about simple and good-looking watches: they make telling time a lot easier than those strange LED watches from Japan. Thankfully, the Cyclops from Mr Jones Watches is very easy to read, and it looks quite nice as well.
I can see how this concept watch submitted by a Japanese designer might be considered crass by some, especially in light of the situation in Fukushima. Honestly, when I saw it the first thing that came to my mind was Fallout and the game’s Pip-Boy wrist computer.
I’ve never thought as Braun as a watch company (mostly an appliance company), but apparently that’s not the case. They’re working on a new digital watch that comes with an analog twist. No, there won’t be a traditional watch face, but there will be an analog dial, a sort of analog scroll wheel, which is kind of cool.
While I’ve never thought about wearing a wooden watch, I have to say that these watches from WeWood look pretty good. On top of that, they’re made out of something natural, and you know, that’s pretty good, right?
Keeping up with a running schedule can be taxing. If you don’t have a calendar you mark off to keep up with your running plan, it’s easy for a week or two to pass with you forgetting about that New Year’s resolution you started.
As you might have guessed, this new Tokyoflash watch isn’t easy to read (what else is new?) but it does looks pretty spiffy. The white version definitely makes me think of TRON: Legacy. There’s also some good news!
The Boy Scouts had it right with their motto about always being prepared. However, you don’t always want people to know that you’re prepared for certain situations.
Unless you’re someone that drinks a lot and doesn’t care who knows it, you might not want to carry a bottle opener on your keychain.
I just spotted that Dezeen has just opened an online watch store, and I hope to see some really funky designs available there. Maybe someday they’ll end up designing their own watches, kind of like Tokyoflash.
Although I love Japanese watches, the one thing that I dislike about a lot of them is to take a few moments to figure out what the heck is exactly going on. The Kisai Traffic watch shows what looks like some random traffic, which is supposed to help you tell the time.
Tokyoflash’s latest concept watch looks cool enough to be used by our robot overlords! Assuming robots wore watches, that is. The Supersonic has bold modern looks and a sleek smoked black hexagonal face.
As with most Tokyoflash watches, half the fun is trying to figure out what the time is when you look at it.
