Retrowerk watches go Steampunk

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on March 2nd, 2009

Retrowerk watches go SteampunkGerman watchmakers Retrowerk have introduced a new range of Steampunk watches. While they don’t shout Steampunk at the top of their lungs, they sort of raise their voice as it were.

They sport the usual Steampunk design cues, like pistons, cogs, gears, revolving jump hour discs and so on. They’re a tad more affordable than most high-end watches, priced between $429 to $1098. Handlebar mustache and bowler hat not required, but they help.

Steampunk watch gobbles up entire wrist

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on September 15th, 2008

Steampunk watch gobbles up entire wristThis Steampunk creation is pretty cool. There’s just so much of it that you have no wrist left and it looks like it would give you carpal tunnel syndrome and make one arm look like a weight lifter while the other is thin and geek-like. Sure is a lot of leather work around the metal flip-open watch.

It does have a certain authentic antique look about it. And I can’t tell you what the whole finger strap is about because my translation skills aren’t up to it. My guess is that you wear this while riding your bicycle and when you see a pretty lady, you activate a bell with your finger that dings, letting the Victorian hottie know that you noticed. Then one day they’ll invent the bicycle bell and your wrist can be free.

Steampunk All-in-one workstation

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

We’ve seen our share of Steampunk items, but few are as large as this Victorian Organ Command Desk. It took the creator about 6 months to complete, and it sure looks worth it, as there is a ton of detail. It looks like a full organ behind it all.

The whole setup offers 3 monitors, a printer, scanner, webcam, horn speakers, iPhone dock, card readers and a built-in clock. H.G. Wells and Jules Verne would love to sit there and write.

Looking for some multi-function in your Steampunk gun? Then this one is for you? It’s basically a Steampunk Swiss-Army Knife. This steampunk metapen gun is almost as small as the world’s smallest gun as well. It’s made from all the usual materials, brass ,copper, wood and steel.

And it does more than just shoot Victorian-clad villains dead. There’s a fork, knife, spoon, lighter, USB drive, watch, lamp, screwdriver, pipe, toothbrush, sawing blade, nail clipper and two extra mines. Pretty awesome.

Steampunk guitar with clockwork gears, a lot of brassThe Steampunk phenomenon just keeps chugging along. Here’s a little something for you Guitar Hero players who wish they featured a Victorian rocker with period guitar. This is what such a guitar might look like. It was built for the 2008 Jersey City Artists Studio Tour by Mark Dalzell, and it’s called Organum Insolitus.

It features a television with Fresnel lens magnifier, onboard phaser, an amplifier and uses clockwork gears, hand hammered brass, cloth wire and wood. The guitar can be attached to an external amp with a standard ¼-inch cable, so you can really use this.

Jules Verne called, he wants his watch back

Jules Verne called, he wants his watch backIf you love Steampunk, then you’ll love Haruo Suekichi’s creations. He’s has lost count on just how many pieces he has created, but an estimate is around 6000-7000. They are made primarily with brass and leather and each is unique. They go well with bowler hats and canes, handlebar mustaches, and frilly shirts. If Haruo Suekichi lived during Jules Verne’s time, he would have made watches for him. Haruo Suekichi has been at it for 13 years and now he’s showing an interest in creating antique fountain pens to go with the rest of your Victorian theme.

Steampunk Bluetooth ear piece

Posted in Bluetooth by Conner Flynn on September 17th, 2008

Steampunk Bluetooth ear pieceWe’ve seen our share of steampunk, but never Bluetooth. Nicrosin’s Victorian-style Bluetooth device should be mass produced and powered solely by winding. He makes his creations from sculpey and watch parts, then lines it with leather for comfort. Though it still looks like it will eat your ear. The prop is fully adjustable and flexible and if you find yourself in a Steampunk alternate reality, you just might be able to use this baby to call your favorite Steampunk droid.

Casio G-Shock G8100A-5 is slightly steampunk

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on August 17th, 2008

Casio G-Shock G8100A-5 is slightly steampunkThe Casio G-Shock G8100A-5 is a watch with typical modern features, while at the same time sporting a vague ‘antique’ design. Obviously Casio doesn’t want to miss out on the steampunk market. It’s got a bronze colored aluminum face and perforated resin band and a price tag of $99.

Even though this watch is only barely steampunk, it has a bunch of features like, auto dual electroluminescent backlights with ‘afterglow’, world time with 29 time zones and automatic daylight savings adjustments, 2 multi-function alarms, snooze alarm, timer that can countdown 1 minute to 24 hours, stopwatch, and it’s shock and water resistant to 200 meters. Not a bad watch if you want to look only slightly steampunk.

Victorian all-in-one Steampunk PC

Victorian all-in-one Steampunk PC
Jake Von Slott has created a Steampunk PC design that is sure to be gold with DIY steampunk enthusiasts. He took a huge 24 inch LCD monitor and crammed an entire CPU behind it and the design still looks awesome. If you want to do it yourself, you’ll have to trim of all the excess plastic and get the monitor in a nice rectangular shape. The entire Monitor/CPU assembly sits on an ornate frame that Jake made from a shelf from the dump.

It’s all super ornate. The fan of this computer is even decorated in a neat mesh. Of course everything inside is very un-steampunk. It’s got a state-of-the-art Intel pentium-4 chipset and all the bells and whistles.

If space pirates had watches…

If space pirates had watches…
We’ve seen some crazy awesome watches lately. Like the UR-202 for instance. But the DeWitt Concept No. 1 is something else again. It’s a unique one-of-a-kind timepiece that’ll set you back a cool $633,000 if you have a pile of cash that’s burning a hole in your bank vault. It was bought from an auction, sight unseen.

What makes it so special? According to the creators of the watch, this “gothic pirate spaceship of a watch is taking the steampunk oeuvre to new heights with its expanding riveted case, flying tourbillon, five barrels and a 21 day power reserve.” Yes, they know that the way to a geek’s heart is through his wrist. Steampunk and the mention of Gothic pirates don’t hurt either.

Vulcania might be the coolest watch ever

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on December 19th, 2007

Vulcania might be the coolest watch ever

Clearly inspired by Captain Nemo’s adventures, this timepiece from HD3 Complication would look right at home in some steampunk Sci-Fi flick. It is so cool in fact, that only 11 were made apparently. Which seems appropriate. Only some ultra-secret society could have watches this cool.

Very nautical in theme, you can tell the time using the rotating wheel cylinders on the left with the minutes on the sextant-like disc. Each moving section is a work of naval engineering art. All of the working parts can be seen from the front and the rear through sapphire glass panels. Forget gaudy gold, the case is made of titanium and platinum. Whatever the materials, the look of this watch is simply stunning.
