1/4 Watch has no hands

Posted in Watches by Shane McGlaun on March 29th, 2010

Normally when I am talking about something that has turned up on Yanko Design, we are talking about a product that is a mere concept and will probably never be able to be purchased. Yanko has a cool watch today called the 1/4 Watch that you can buy.

The watch come in red, blue, black, and white colors and can be purchased for $85. The watch has a case that measures 39mm x 31mm x 7mm and is water resistant. The case is made from stainless steel and it has a mineral glass crystal.

Tokyoflash Binary Flow concept watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on March 24th, 2010

Here’s a watch that Neo from The Matrix would love. As usual, it’s from those crazy kids at Tokyoflash, so good luck deciphering the time on this one. The watch can be recharged via USB, and the display is e-paper, which makes it look cool.

With all of the cool watches that Tokyoflash offers I don’t know why anyone still wears a conventional watch. Oh yeah, they want to know the time easily. I would wear this one though. Pretty neat.

Watch3 watch is a concept you can buy today

Posted in Watches by Shane McGlaun on March 22nd, 2010

Concept watches seem to popup all the time and they typically have a cool design that we know deep down will never make it to store shelves. If you are tired of seeing concept watches you can’t buy, the Watch3 is for you.

This watch looks like a concept, but you can grab one now. Assuming you are willing to cough up $570 and the limited run of 100 units hasn’t run out. The watch has numbers printed on the back of the crystal that are only visible when the hour hand is on them.

The diameter of the stainless steel case is 38mm and the face is 6.7mm thick. The watch is constructed by hand by Swiss watchmakers and uses a quartz movement. The strap is made from leather and the face glows thanks to phosphorescent paint.

Cal-Q-Tek 2000 calculator watch

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

Even though there isn’t any real reason to wear one today, calculator watches always bring back memories of the 80s. If you like the retro style of a calculator watch on your wrist, the Cal-Q-Tek 2000 calculator watch should do nicely.

The style is pretty cool and at just $18, you won’t need a calculator to figure out if you can afford it or not. Heck it may even come in handy. Maybe at the grocery store or when you balance your checkbook.

Hublot Liberty Bullet Pocket Watch

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

Your pocket watch isn’t nearly as manly as the Hublot bullet pocket watch. It’s soon to be number one with a bullet on the pocket watch charts. It’s called “Liberty” and houses a Tourbillon. You can even wear it as a bracelet or pendant.

There is a titanium bullet head and a black aluminum base. Hublot isn’t condoning war as far as we know. Just trying to appeal to those who want a more manly form for their pocket watch. You can own one and still give peace a chance.

Cabestan Nostromo watch is full of gears

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on March 16th, 2010

The Cabestan Nostromo watch is one of those watches that you stare at in amazement and picture all of those gears turning. It was inspired by the ship from the Alien movie, hence the name. The Nostromo combines traditional watchmaking with “retro-futuristic audacity”‘

I can only assume that that describes the titanium case and Superluminova phosphorescent coating. You know this one is going to cost you quite a bit.

Past Present Future Watch is not what your wife wants for your anniversary

Posted in Watches by Shane McGlaun on March 15th, 2010

When your wife drops hints about past, present and future stuff for your anniversary, it’s not this watch she means. Yanko Design has a new watch that you can actually buy on their store.

The watch has no numbers on the face and has labels reading past at 11oclock, present at 12 and future at 1. The watch has a couple turning wheels inside that align to show you the time in numbers that look digital.

E Clock is like having an e-book on your wrist

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

TokyoFlash, those makers of all kinds of wacky and fun watches, have done it again. Now they have created an E-ink display watch to accompany the current e-book craze. Looks pretty sweet. The E Clock can tell the time using normal numbers, or by using patterns of dashes and lines if you like to be mysterious.

It will connect via Bluetooth to your phone, alerting you to calls and texts through vibration or a blinking indicator. It might not look like it, but the band is made from flexible stainless steel. If enough people vote for it, they will make it and offer it up. What do you think?

Louis Moinet Jurassic Tourbillon Watch has dinosaur bones inside

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on March 12th, 2010

You know you’re rich when your watch has dinosaur bones in it. The Louis Moinet Jurassic Tourbillon Watch is not your usual watch and it has fragments of 130-million-year-old dinosaur bones inside. We aren’t sure why. Probably because when you’re rich anything is possible. No matter how stupid.

It also has some other nice features, like an 18K white gold case with 56 diamonds on the bezel. Now archeologists will be forced to steal the watches of the wealthy to learn about the past.

Happy Hour Watch will open beer bottles

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on March 10th, 2010

Some watches help you look good, others help you to just keep an eye on the time. The Happy Hour watch will help you get drinking after a hard day at the office, making every hour a potential happy hour. Aside from telling the time, the most useful feature this watch has is its bottle-opening buckle.

The watch face has only one hour marker, 5-O’clock. It will cost you $49.95. That’s an expensive bottle opener, but what the hell. As long as you have access to a nice cold beer, it’s all good.

LEGO Star Wars watches

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on March 9th, 2010

The awesome watches above are part of a new line of LEGO Star Wars watches that are arriving on April 1st. No, this is not an early April Fools joke. These watches are real. They come in kids-size and some are adult size as well.

They will cost you $22 for kids, $30 for adults, but sadly the adult watches don’t come with a minifig like the kid’s versions. Don’t they know that we adults need toys too?

4N watch looks crazy

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on March 9th, 2010

The 4N watch looks awesomely retro with numbers everywhere. It accomplishes the unusual look thanks to a disc-based mechanism that rotates all four numbers into position, giving you the current time.

The three discs are made of aluminum or a titanium alloy and the MVT01 movement is exposed to the eye. As usual with this kind of luxury watch, you can expect to pay a hefty price for this kind of style. There will only be 16 available worldwide.

Tokyo Flash Hexagon Watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on March 5th, 2010

If bees wore watches this is what they would look like. Just looking at this watch, you know it’s from Tokyo Flash. But this Hexagonal watch isn’t real, it’s just a stunning concept. We hope that Tokyo Flash decides to make it real.

Telling the time on this thing is easy. The blue colored LEDS are the hours, five minute increments are purple and individual minutes are pink. So are you all buzzing about this watch? Sorry, bad joke. I’ll bee more careful in the future.

Double-Axis Tourbillion watch is mysterious, amazing

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

It’s been awhile since we’ve seen a watch as amazing as this one. Amazing doesn’t even do it justice. In fact, the more you look at it, the more it mesmerizes you. Thomas Prescher’s Double Axis Tourbillon is completely empty of everything except the tourbillon, which is just hovering in the center, suspended by a thin wire.

Only the time, Tourbillon, calendar and oscillating weight are visible. The movement is completely hidden inside the bezel, and it’s powered by the oscillating weight at the top. You can’t help but stare at this thing for way too long.
