You can choose from Verde, Bianco, Blue, Lilla and Rosa colors and it comes with an anti-scratch design and waterproof case. Only $24.99. Wear this watch in the bathroom with some glow-in-the-dark toilet paper and you almost have full light.

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

Are you a world traveler who never has any idea what time it is where you happen to be? Well, here’s a watch that can help, from Diesel.

The Time Zone Watch is futuristic as well as convenient. Those multiple dials will let you see up to four different simultaneous time zones. The digital clock at the bottom is there just in case you can’t read analog. We love the blue/black/yellow color.

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

We haven’t seen any interesting watches from Timex for awhile now, but check this guy out. It’s the company’s new GPS-on board watch. It will be arriving next month, going by the name Ironman Global Trainer. Yes it has GPS and is not fugly.

It features real-time speed, pace and distance data courtesy of the SiRFstarIII module inside, and it also boasts 50 meters of water resistance, a customizable display to showing off all of the data and it can send performance reports to your PC. It’s compatible with Timex heart rate and bike sensors and third-party power meters using ANT+ wireless technology. Did I mention that it looks nice?

These shock resistant watches feature a 1/1000-second stopwatch, velocity indicator, and are even magnetic resistance compliant with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

Over-sized buttons make it easy to operate. Some other features include an anti-slip finish and a large face with easy-to-read displays. There are a three versions of the black GA-100 models and a few of the GA-100A models, which will come in yellow or white. Pretty nice.

2Oct2031 concept watch

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

The 2Oct2031 concept watch looks like a Sci-fi movie prop. That’s what we love about it. It’s part stealth, part alien, all cool. It’s from designer Tao Ma. The 2Oct2031 concept watch has angles that might be from a stealth plane or a diamond.

This one will be aimed at the Chinese market, but the concept watch isn’t ready for production just yet. We hope that other watch makers are paying attention. We want more like this.

HDBT-990 Wristband Communicator

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

Think of the HDBT-990 Wristband Communicator as a cellphone watch de-volved. It’s as if the industry has given up on the idea of a cellphone watch and focused instead on the communicator from Star Trek I. This is basically just a Bluetooth headset on your wrist.

One that costs $85 and lacks any style at all. If this is the future, then the future is ugly and awkward. Freeze me now and wake me up when I can call someone on my wrist in style.

Stanley watch with built in LED flashlight

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on December 30th, 2009

This flashlight watch from Brando is pretty neat. I’m not sure how useful it actually is, or even if it’s an official Stanley gadget, but any watch with it’s own flashlight is good by me.

It also features an alarm, backlight and a timer. At least you will always have a flashlight at the ready for those projects that you choose to build in the dead of night.

Arduino based MakerBotWatch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on December 28th, 2009

This is one of the coolest watches we’ve seen in some time. When you think Arduino, you tend to think robot projects, not watches. This Arduino based MakerBotWatch actually manages to be fresh and exciting and it’s something that any DIYer can try.

The MakerBotWatch uses an ATmega328 microcontroller to run the bootloader, while the two concentric circles of LEDs show minutes and hours. A vertical row of four LEDs adds in the additional resolution needed to get 60 minutes on the watch face. The MakerBotWatch is expected to go into production as a kit soon, but with no laser-cut bezel.

Jaeger-LeCoultre AMVOX3 Tourbillon GMT watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on December 23rd, 2009

Swiss watchmaker Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin have joined forces to create a new and expensive love-child in the form of the AMVOX3 Tourbillon GMT. It was inspired by the Koenigsegg CCR sports car and features an open dial that gives you a clear view of everything that’s going on.

It’s a beautiful watch. More for showing off than actually knowing the time. Only three hundred of these watches will be available for purchase. Probably only 300 of you can actually afford one.

Retro Pac-Man watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on December 4th, 2009

Retro Pac-Man watchHows your geek cred? Well, if you don’t own at least one quality Pac-Man item, you are not an official geek. And this Pac-Man watch is a good one to own. It’s half past clyde and a quarter to a power-pellet, or something like that.

It was made exclusively for ClubNAMCO and tells time using ghosts and power pellets. The invisible second is Pac-Man himself gobbling up dots, cherries and a blue ghost as he circles around. How cool is that? Only 500 of these watches are being produced, and each will be individually marked with a serial number. The price isn’t too bad at $129.99.

phenomdreamwatchphoneGeeks the world over have become infatuated with the idea of a watch phone. I can get the outright geek appeal of the devices, but the reality of the tiny keys and screen don’t make me want to give up my iPhone for a watch phone.

Phenom has unveiled its latest device called the Dream watch phone. The device is a quad-band dual SIM watch phone that also has a built-in MP3 player, video player, digital camera, and video camera inside the tiny package.

MK 2 Circuit watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on November 16th, 2009

MK 2 Circuit watchThe MK 2 Circuit watch is everything we love about modern watchmaking. The LED watch is integrated into a stainless steel bracelet style band. It comes from Storm of London and it won’t be that much of a pain to figure out the time. It displays just the time and date, but that’s okay. We like it simple.

If cylons wore watches, this is what they would look like. Obviously reading this thing in the dark should be easy. It isn’t too hard to pay for either at just $200.

Star Wars watches By Marc EckoWhen it comes to Star Wars geek money flows like a raging waterfall into the pockets of enterprising dudes like Marc Ecko. Even when the economy is bad. Ecko has teamed up with Timex to release a line of Star Wars watches.

The line is inspired by Star Wars obviously and uses a mix of metals, rubbers and nylons. They feature “indiglo”, sounds and other gimmicks. There’s Boba Fett, R2, Stormtroopers and of course Vader. There’s no price information yet, but the Timex/Ecko pieces will be available this holiday season so that geeks can get all broke and live with their mom another year.
