Tokyo Flash’s Changing Lanes watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on June 8th, 2010

The latest watch from Tokyo Flash was inspired by taxis and other vehicles weaving through rush hour traffic. As usual, it a puzzle to figure out how to read the time on this one. The lights that are going down the left side of the watchface are the hours, with 1:00 being at the very top, and 6:00 at the bottom. The next ‘lane’ shows the hours of 7:00 to 12:00, starting from the bottom and going up.

Then on the right side you have the minutes, in three minute segments. 3 is at the top, and down the bottom is 27 minutes, while the lane to the left of the far-right increasing to 57 minutes at the north of the watch. Quarter-minutes, 15 and 45, are in the middle, and 2 minute intervals will light up separately. Frankly, I’m still confused.

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on May 25th, 2010

The new touch screen watch collection from Kenneth Cole claims to be the first touch screen watch for the fashion market. So pay attention fashionistas. Some features include a 32 city world time function, electro luminescent back light, stainless steel construction, water resistance and chronograph technology.

These watches come in three different styles ranging from $125 to $175. The Kenneth Cole watches are available directly from the Kenneth Cole website or Macy’s and Dillards.

Tokyoflash Gridlock watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on May 23rd, 2010

Tokyoflash, makers of high-end nerdware, have yet another futuristic watch. The Gridlock watch features an asymmetrical design with a curved, brushed metal case, a black screen and an orange interface. I know, you have the usual question. How the hell do you read this one?

Well, the hours are displayed on the left in highlighted squares, while the minutes on the right in digits. It’s not nearly as tough to read as some of their other watches, but just as good looking.

The ever increasing watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on May 18th, 2010

Here’s another watch that looks like it came straight out of a Sci-Fi movie. It looks awesome and as is usually the case with these watches it is hard to read. This one comes from the folks at Yanko Design from Eleeno. It’s called the Ever Increasing Watch.

The face has a grid and dotted lines that looks like a graph. The top blue line is the hours, the middle green line is the minutes in tens, and the bottom red line shows single minutes. The lines have the numbers underneath as well to make it easier.

Tokyoflash Round Trip pocket watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on May 18th, 2010

Tokyoflash watches are pretty awesome. Without them, timekeeping would be boring. Here’s there latest creation. A modern pocket watch. The Tokyoflash Round Trip pocket watch charges via USB and the shapes, and colors tell the time…somehow.

A single charge takes about three hours, but Tokyoflash claims it’ll last a month once finished charging. At $73 this is an expensive nerd conversation peice. Pretty though.

Avatar 1259B Watch looks as odd as its name

Posted in Watches by Shane McGlaun on May 12th, 2010

Sometimes gadgets make it to market that should have stayed at the concept stage. Such is the case with the really weird looking Avatar 1259B Watch that is available to purchase at Yanko Design.

This is one of the rare concept watches that Yanko shows off that you can actually buy. It uses 12 LED lights on the circular face to show hours, five LEDs show tens of minutes, and nine other LEDs show the minutes.

Maximilian Busser’s Frog watch

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

Imagine if you will, a frog that became assimilated by the Borg. This awesome design from watchmaker Maximilian Busser is kinda like that. It’s been designed by Horological Machine Number 3 and Busser and is called simply the Frog.

The shape and style is designed to “bring a child’s sense of awe and sense of playfulness” to all those who look at it. The two large, bulging domes indicate hours and minutes. Those domes are made of sapphire crystal so no scratches.

Scope Watch tells time using latitude and longitude

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

Here’s a cool retro looking watch. Looks a bit large though. The Scope watch looks like something from a movie. Specifically it looks like that familiar computer screen where our hero locks onto an object, say a car, and enhances it several times until he can read the license plate numbers.

The design is simple and that’s why it’s cool. It won’t enhance images, but the watch uses the tried and true latitude and longitude to give you the time.

Tokyoflash Kisai Broke watch looks like broken stained glass

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on April 28th, 2010

Love it or hate it, Tokyoflash makes unique watches. The face of the watch looks like broken stained glass, which is probably why it’s called the Kisai Broke. This one is also USB rechargeable, so no replaceable batteries, which is always a hassle.

It’s a Tokyoflash design, so it won’t be easy to read. But you don’t buy it to tell the time. You buy it to make a statement on your wrist. The Kisai Broke is available for $168 over at Tokyoflash now.

USB Memory Watch

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

There’s nothing new abut a watch with flash memory in it, but the USB Memory Watch concept looks cooler than most and stands out from the crowd. The USB port on the end of the watch is retractable, so it won’t get in the way when you need to use it.

Plus, we like the face on this one, which features a visual indicator of just how much storage space is left on the watch, uh drive. It just plain looks awesome.

A watch with volcanic ash from the Icelandic volcano

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on April 22nd, 2010

This watch comes from the same guy who brought us this watch, with moon dust and parts from Apollo 11. He managed to get his hands on some of the ashes from the Icelandic Eyjafjallajökull volcano very quickly.

The damn thing only erupted a week ago. The design looks appropriately burnt and molten. The catch is that there’s only one available. The price isn’t listed because it would send you into cardiac arrest.

Devon Works Tread 1 bulletproof watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on April 20th, 2010

Man, this is one awesome looking watch. It has a ton of amazing detail. But looks aren’t all the Devon Works Tread 1 has going for it. It’s also the first bulletproof watch we’ve ever seen. Perfect if bad guys are aiming at your wrist. Though I suppose the impact would still shatter your wrist. It won’t protect you where it counts.

How much would you pay for a bullet-proof watch? Well, you’ll have to pay $15,000 if you want this one. I suppose you could do the Wonder Woman thing and deflect bullets with this thing, just know that it is still gonna hurt.

Moonwatch, the Werewolf’s new best friend

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on April 8th, 2010

One of the problems with being a werewolf, aside from the fact that you change once a month and go on a killing spree, is that it’s a pain to keep track of the lunar cycle. What if you forget to mark it on a calendar? Well, the Moonwatch will show you the time either by hour or by phase of the moon, so you’ll never be caught off guard again.

That way if you want, you can lock yourself in a cage ahead of time. The rest of us thank you ahead of time for being a responsible Werewolf and using this watch, which is not available yet, but hopefully soon.

Adidas Calculator Watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on April 6th, 2010

Adidas wants a piece of the calculator watch market and they hope that you will choose theirs to unleash your inner math nerd. This one comes in several colors and looks super retro. The colors include black, gold,blue and lilac colorways.

These calculator watches may be awesome, but make sure you stick to simple math. I don’t want to hear a news story about how some dude tried to do his taxes on his wrist watch and got himself into trouble. Just use it for simple stuff and to look cool.

Instant Trend watch is too dang complicated to read

Posted in Watches by Shane McGlaun on April 2nd, 2010

At some point we need to draw the line on crazy watches that have displays you need a mathematics degree and an instruction manual to read. I want my clock to have numbers and just tell me what time it is, not impress my friends by how complicated it is.

Tokyoflash has unveiled its latest, and very complicated new watch called the Instant Trend. The thing has the expected majorly complex face to show what time it is. It also has a normal readout that can show the time in up to four zones at once.
