Asteroids watch outdoes the Pong-playing watch

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

Asteroids watch outdoes the Pong-playing watchJohn Maushammer enjoyed some minor fame in geek circles with his Pong wristwatch, but he craved more. So he delivered unto mankind a new great thing. The DIY Asteroids Watch outdoes it’s predecessor.

It even features a tilt sensor so the wearer can control the action by just tilting their wrist and going pew pew pew. Frankly, we could go on about it all day, but the bottom line is that the man is a DIY game watch god. Check out a video below.

Casio Databank gets new colors

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on December 10th, 2008

Casio Databank gets new colorsCasio’s watch calculators were all the rage back in the day. That was a few decades ago. Casio is hoping that those days might come again and so their Databank series now comes in a whole new variety of colors including black, green, orange and white.

Of course, these timepieces are not just watches, they also feature an 8-digit calculator, an automatic calendar and 25-page data storage. They’ll cost you $59 a piece, but if you like the classic pure-black version it will cost you another $10.

Kisai Tenmetsu Tokyoflash watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on December 9th, 2008

Kisai Tenmetsu Tokyoflash watchTenmetsu is the latest addition to the brand new line of Kisai timepieces from Japanese watch importer Tokyoflash. The idea behind this one is that with three LEDs positioned beneath each lens, you’ll get a transition between LED colors, creating an unusual look. And it does. As usual Tokyoflash comes up with a unique design.

This one is nice and light weight because it’s made from aluminum. You can get one in either silver or black. So how do you read the time on this one? The time and date are shown in sequence by color. Red LEDs indicate 15 units, amber LEDs indicate 5 units and green LEDs indicate 1 unit, a combination of which present hours, minutes, months and date. Still confused? Me too.

Mobiado Professional 105GMT Gold, mechanical watch phoneMobiado is famous for its range of high-end cell phones, and the Professional 105GMT Gold handset is their latest. They call it “the expression of mechanical perfection, mastering of aesthetic details, and the integrity of consistent craftsmanship.”

The 105GMT Gold is made from single piece of sapphire crystal, ebony wood and a CNC-machined frame with a 24-carat gold coating on top. The keypad is made from sapphire crystal too, and hand painted with gold. What makes the Professional 105GMT Gold phone stand out from the rest of these gilded luxury phones is that it features a watch mechanism at the base of the case. No idea on price, but since it will be limited to just 50 units worldwide, expect to pay a small fortune.

Tokyoflash launches the NiTokyoflash, those wild and crazy watch makers just never take a breather. Which is great for us, because if it wasn’t for Tokyoflash, watches would be boring. They’re back, having never left, with their latest wristwatch known as the Ni.

This design is at once stylish and minimal. The Ni is made entirely from stainless steel and features a polished finish, with horizontal grooves on the face and strap that give it a great look. The time progresses in one direction. Touch the upper button for an animation before the time is displayed. Each LED on the bottom line indicates two hours, the line above indicates a single hour, a combination presenting the current hour. Groups of 10 minutes are presented on the center row and single minutes on the upper two lines.

Micro-trains run on time in this pocket-watchTwo tiny trains circle around this clock perched atop a mountain. This watch could easily cross the line into cheesiness, yet somehow it’s more cool then cheesy. The watch is made by Mr. Christmas, a company that actually has some cool Christmas gadgets.

The small trains move around the clock when you wind up the stem. Even plays the song “I’ve Been Working on the Railroad.” Okay, that part is cheesy. For $19.47, what the heck. Get into the Christmas spirit you grumps. These are two mini trains on a watch for god’s sake. That fit in your pocket.

Watches made from spare space parts

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on November 16th, 2008

Watches made from spare space partsSwiss watchmaker Romain Jerome has released something new and amazingly awesome in the “Moon Dust-DNA” collection. It’s a collection of 1969 timepieces that includes watches made from such things as moon dust, parts of the Apollo 11 rocket and even pieces actual spacesuits. Why 1969 timepieces? That was the year of the first moon landing.

The dials feature tiny craters with dust in them from moon rocks, the cases include bits of steel from the Apollo 11 space shuttle and the strap gets the same treatment, containing fibers from a spacesuit worn during the ISS mission. So if you want to get yourself several pieces of things that have actually been in space, this is a good way to do it. Pricing for the Moon Dust-DNA watches is also out of this world, starting at $15,000 and goes as high as $500,000.

LED boombox wrist watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on November 16th, 2008

LED boombox wrist watchThis watch is great for Boom-Box enthusiasts whose arms are too frail to carry around the real thing. Flüd’s Boombox watch looks like an actual tiny version of the Boom-Boxes of yesterday. The watch even features an old school 7-segment red LED display that looks authentic to the period. Unfortunately those small speakers don’t pump out any tunes. The Boombox watch is available in shiny silvertone or gunmetal grey for $90. Unlike the real thing, half of it’s weight isn’t due to D cell batteries.

Cycle Life watch knows your routine well

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

Cycle Life watch knows your routine wellMost of us have a pretty boring routine. Designer Andy Kurovets had some fun with that fact with this watch that leads the user through the six stages of their average day. It starts with Wake Up!, then leads us through our commute. Next we are sitting at a PC at work, before eventually returning home to watch TV and finally going to bed.

Each stage lights up red at the proper time of day, so you know where you should be. If that’s too depressing for you, or if you get amnesia and forget your daily grind, it also features a regular readout of hours and minutes. It’s just a concept, but it’s a watch that fits most peoples mundane schedule.

Leonardo da Vinci’s Backwards watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on November 10th, 2008

Leonardo da Vinci’s Backwards watchYou 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.

$1,000 Sudoku watch only has one level

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on November 2nd, 2008

$1,000 Sudoku watch only has one levelI’ll be honest, I don’t understand the whole Sudoku craze. But this beautiful watch based on the game has a great look. It’s a shame it costs a fortune and only gives you a single level. The outlandishly priced watch commemorates one Leonard Euler, the Swiss mathematician whose Latin Squares inspired the game of Sudoku. It will cost you $995 and comes in a game box.

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?
