WeWood Wooden Watches

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on September 29th, 2010

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck is a woodchuck could chuck WeWood Wooden Watches? That’s the question. This is one of the coolest watches we have seen in a while. WeWood watches are created from wood, including the case, strap and watch face.

None of these watches are stained, and all of the finishes are completely natural, making them look pretty awesome and they come in a wide range of colors.

Latest Tokyoflash watch concept will leave you cross-eyed

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on September 26th, 2010

So what time is it? Can you tell from that image? I can’t. But if you focus you just might see the time. It’s 5:36. With this watch time is read and hidden by an optical illusion. Now I see it. Thanks for hurting my eyes.

If for some reason you can’t see it, there’s a button on the side that turns off the illusion and displays just the numbers. Pretty cool, even if it is a pain to see.

Ulysse Nardin unveils awesome Freak Diavolo Rolf 75

Posted in Watches by Shane McGlaun on September 16th, 2010

Most of us buy watches, assuming we even wear a watch, that are relatively cheap. There are some wealthy folks out there that buy watches more as a fashion statement than to tell time. One of the watchmakers that produce some of the coolest designs is Ulysse Nardin.

The latest creation from the maker is to celebrate the company owner’s 75 birthday. The watch is a limited edition and only 75 will be sold globally. The watch is called the Freak Diavolo Rolf 75. The cool part about the watch is that it lacks a true dial, crown, and hands. The pieces and gears that make the watch are exposed for all to see.

Tokyoflash Cobra LED watch concept

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on September 14th, 2010

The aptly named Cobra LED watch from Tokyoflash shows the time, well, like a cobra. This concept watch tells you the time using two decks, one that shows the hours, while the other shows the minutes.

Numbers are engraved on each deck like a scale. You can view the time vertically or diagonally. It looks like it could leap off your wrist and strike.

Tokyoflash watch concept is one I can actually use

Posted in Watches by Shane McGlaun on September 10th, 2010

I would say 99% of the watches that I see over on Tokyoflash are not something I would use. Let’s be honest, watches without numbers still through a lot of us off so having to decipher gobs of symbols that tell the time is just way more than I care to put up with. I will say that the watches are usually pretty cool though.

Tokyoflash has a new watch concept that is easy to use and was designed by a 14-year-old. The watch has numbers spelled out in one long run on all the way down the screen. The worlds are grey by default and when they are needed to tell the time the light up in blue.

Tokyoflash Night Vision watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on August 11th, 2010

The folks over at Tokyoflash never ever sleep. They don’t rest at all. They just spend all of their time coming up with unusual new watches. And that’s what we love about the company. Their latest crazy watch concept is the Night Vision concept.

This one looks pretty cool and Sci-Fi like with bright green lights. As usual, it’s hard to figure out how you tell the time at first. The outer bars indicate the hours, while the minutes are shown in the center in large digital numerals.

Tokyoflash Traffic Watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on August 4th, 2010

Those crafty folks over at Tokyoflash have yet another weird watch in the Traffic Watch. This one uses three map routes to display the time. The hours are displayed as the city streets marked in blue, while 5 minute intervals are shown along the subway line. The single minutes are shown in green.

There is also an optional night mode animation between 6pm to midnight. It can be recharged via USB, and will last for roughly a month on a 3.5 hour charge. The battery is good for up to 300 charge cycles, and can be replaced when needed.

Tokyoflash Space Digit watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on July 27th, 2010

Tokyoflash has introduced their latest watch concept called the Space Digit. This unique and hard to read watch features a silver ring around the face that contrasts against the black case and strap to enhance the fact that the lens is raised above the case.

There is also another deep acrylic lens that covers the interface, and beneath is what appears to be a maze of digits. Blue LEDs light up the display when the button is touched and three flashing digits show the current time.

Tokyoflash Wavelength watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on July 15th, 2010

Tokyoflash has unveiled their latest timepiece called the Wavelength. This one looks a bit out of character for the company, but still pretty neat. It features an always on LCD display and user selectable LED backlighting.

As usual, telling time with this watch is a bit confusing. The hour is displayed in digits in negative space in the center of the display, while minutes are shown as the ring of blocks surrounding the digits. The first rotation of minutes in positive blocks to 30 minutes, then the second rotation in negative blocks to 60.

Q8 Dual SIM watch phone

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on June 21st, 2010

Myself, I don’t get having two SIM cards on a single phone. Maybe you just want the convenience of having separate numbers for personal and business use without carrying two handsets. If it works for you, it’s all good I guess. Now we have a dual sim watch phone. That may be going a bit far.

The $130 Q8 watch phone has the ability to have 2 numbers simultaneously, with Bluetooth, a 2-megapixel camera, video and audio playback, and a microSD memory card slot. That 1.33″ touchscreen display is going to be a real pain though.

EOS Mixtape Watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on June 21st, 2010

Remember the days of cassette tapes? Trying to get all of the music you can on 60 and 90 minute tapes? Relive those glory days with this neat retro watch. It features a gold plated stainless steel case with “EOS NEW YORK” laser etched onto the base.

There’s also a cute laser etched robot and “60 MIN.” The dial features two movable discs which mimics the movement of a real cassette tape. The hands are on the right dial for the time, with orange markers.
