Here’s the latest from Tokyoflash, who aims to start a fire on your wrist. This one is designed vertically with Yellow LEDs that will tell you the hours, red LEDs indicate groups of 10 minutes and the green LEDs indicate single minutes. As always, hard to read for some, but very stylish and futuristic. It features an adjustable strap and they claim that it’s so comfortable you barely know it’s on your wrist. You can get yours for a limited time only launch price of about $130.

You don’t see a watch that features the mug of Leonardo da Vinci everyday. It’s inspired by his backwards writing or “mirror writing”, which some believe to be a code. Others think he was just punking people in the future. The more likely reason is that Leonardo was left handed and preferred to pull a pen as opposed to pushing it across the page in order to prevent the ink from smudging.
And just like the writing in his notebooks, this watch does everything backwards. The numbers on the faceplate are written and listed backwards, and the hour and minute hands move counter-clockwise as well. That should make it a real pain to tell what time it is. The price is $36. That’s not $63 backwards.
Everyone is looking to buy some gold, seeing it as a safe bet in an uncertain economy. Why not combine your gold with say, your PC and feel like a Bond villain in some underground lair?
While we aren’t sure how much gold this PC contains, it will impress your minions until you you drop them in a shark pond. It does feature an Intel Core 2 Duo processor and a 100GB hard drive, 4GB of RAM, along with eight USB 2.0 ports and two FireWire sockets. No word on price, but it’s a safe bet you can’t afford it. Anyway, you have to go through black market channels for Super-villain goods.
We all love Tokyoflash watches. They are the cutting edge of style and innovation. It gets even better when they put a game of chance on your wrist. The Tokyoflash Jackpot Watch is a stylish timepiece that allows you to spin the numbers like a slot machine.
You just need to press the button and set your bet amount, then hit another button to spin the digits. Hey, if you’ve got a gambling problem this may keep you out of the casinos. The Tokyoflash Jackpot Watch retails for $100 and sadly does not shower your wrist with tiny coins when you win. Can we get somebody working on that?
Here’s a simple and yet interesting watch. This MK V watch from Storm London incorporates a working metal shutter that hides and reveals the face. They should have done this with a James Bond watch since it’s how the movies open. Pretty cool, though it might get old having to click a button to see what time it is, but then again when a pretty girl asks for the time, imagine the impression you’ll make. It’s available in black, slate or rose gold finish with a rubber strap and stainless steel case for $171 to $188.
What is this new pretty thing? Surely that’s too nice to be a phone. It’s Motorola’s latest, the premium Aura handset, and it’s all about design. It was inspired by high end swiss watches. The phone’s switch blade design all by itself is driven by over 200 parts and 130 of them are ball bearings used to open the handset up to an estimated 100,000 times before failure. It doesn’t end there.
The display is the work of fine engineering too. Just 1.55-inches in diameter, it’s the “world’s first” circular cellphone screen and features 16 million colors and 300 dpi clarity. I guess it doesn’t hurt that it’s coated with 62-carat sapphire crystal too, in order to prevent scratching. The phone is quad band with GPRS and EDGE featuring 7.3 hours of talk time, 2GB, AGPS, stereo Bluetooth, microUSB port, and 2MP camera. It will be available starting December 4th for $2,000. Fine watch quality, fine watch price.
This IBM concept laptop looks like something from an alternate dimension. It’s the kind of laptop we might be using had the cold war never ended and spies were everywhere and issued these laptops by Q.
It’s a concept by Nicolas Lehotzky. The most interesting thing about it is the giant security “knob” which is fingerprint activated and allows the laptop to respond only to the owner’s touch, acting as a physical lock. It also has hidden USB ports and a trusty built-in paper shredder. It goes well with the watches depicting the Bond villains.
Sony Ericsson brings us some spy love with the special edition Sony Ericsson C902 Titanium Silver aka James Bond’s Quantum of Solace mobile phone. Just like the Sex In the City phone, it’s all about tying your phone in with the movie.
The handset will come in a special promo-box along with exclusive content on the phone including a Quantum of Solace trailer, behind the scenes videos, Special Quantum of Solace phone themes, five wallpapers, two animated wallpapers, Quantum of Solace java-game, plus music and voice ring tones. Great for James Bond fans who already have some villain watches.
There’s good news and there’s bad news. The bad news is that these watches haven’t been in Q’s workshop and outfitted with weapons. The good news is that these 007 Villain watches from Swatch look pretty damn cool. Perfect for any villain looking to cause mayhem on a global scale.
You can get 19 different watches from the collection, all based on classic Bond movies like Quantum Of Solace, The Spy Who Loved Me, Live And Let Die, A View To A Kill, Goldfinger and Casino Royale and others. They cost anywhere from $60 to $235. I guess you can always have weapons and gadgets put in after you purchase them. You might as well take over the world in style. Meanwhile the villains from Austin Powers get no respect. Where are their watches?
If 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.
Sony Ericsson launched this week its first collection of Bluetooth watches for women. Looking not geeky at all, you’ll find the MBW-200 range of watches available in select global markets by the end of the year.
The MBW-200 watches offer what Sony Ericsson describes as “three different sophisticated designs to match your personality.” They were designed in conjunction with Fossil and are labeled the Sparkling Allure, Contemporary Elegance and Evening Classic Editions.
Nixon Watches has unveiled their latest collection of analog watches, the fashionably and retro R1G1. The analog dial watch features a set of four mechanical hands to keep track of the time and date. Two hands rotate around the middle of the dial, one for seconds and the other for minutes. A pair of gauges that look like speedometers show the current hour and the day of the month. The R1G1 is available now in several different colors from $150-$200.
Here’s Tokyoflash’s newest hard to read and futuristic timepiece for those who love these hard-to-read-watches. With the LCD interface, the time can be read at a glance but it can also be illuminated with sci-fi green LEDs, so that when you touch the button, it resembles a glowing radar screen. It sports a solid stainless steel strap which can be adjusted.
So how do you read this one? The outer ring dots are the minutes, every fifth dot being slightly smaller to distinguish five minutes. The ring of large blocks represents rough minutes, the position of the gap indicating approximate minutes. The inner ring of blocks represents hours, the position of the gap in the ring showing the current hour as on a clock face. It will set you back $154.
Well known surfing apparel company Quiksilver has a new watch called The Ray. It should last for many years since it’s an analog watch boasting a 27-jewel movement. The display unusual, making it different and attractive to many. You’ll either love it or hate it.
Another bonus for stylish hippies is that it leaves a minimal carbon footprint on the environment rather then a huge bigfoot print. It’s even shipped in eco-friendly packaging via sea instead of air, which reduces CO2 emissions. It’s a limited edition, with only be 1,000 available throughout the world, so be prepared to pay big money.
The 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.
