Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on June 20th, 2008

Limited Metal Gear Solid 4 watchThis Limited Edition Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots watch is now available for preorder at UK online retailer Gamestation. It’s a great geek way to celebrate your love of MGS, which is an unnatural sort of love at best.

Made from stainless steel, engraved and numbered, and comes in it’s own black box with silver MGS4 logo, plus a certificate of authenticity from Konami. It was approved by Kojima himself. You better hurry. Only 500 are being released on October 31st, and they’re only going to be available through Gamestation. Sadly for some of you, they only ship to the UK. Hopefully you have some friends over there.

You + Chapter One watch = Chapter 11

Chapter One watch from Maîtres du Temps
The Chapter One watch from Maîtres du Temps is a collaboration between three leading watch designers, Christophe Claret, Peter Speake-Marin, and Roger Dubuis. It shows. This watch is a real looker. Plus, the Chapter One has a tourbillon, retrograde GMT and date indicators, with a mono-pusher chronograph and 60-minute totalizer.

One of the coolest and simpler features is the pair of rolling displays that show the day of the week and the moon phase. Prepare to be broke after buying this beauty. It’s a limited edition of only 33, which immediately jacks the price skyhigh. It will cost you just under $400,000.

Mind Blowing cell phone watch

Mind Blowing cell phone watch
Here’s another cell phone watch. This one is pretty arrogant and cocky, proclaiming itself the Mind Blowing cell phone watch, with some different features. It’s from Chinavasion and gives you the option of filling up the micro SD card with movies or music that you can listen to over a Bluetooth connection.

I’m not sure which feature they believe is mind blowing. Could be the organiser, or the side mounted camera. Maybe it’s the GSM Compatibility, or the 1.5 inch TFT LCD 176×132 Touchscreen, or 3 x Digital Zoom. It must be the price at $193.13. Yeah, that must be it. Consider my mind blown.

Diesel LED watch with mirror display

Diesel LED watch with mirror display
After seeing so many watches with displays that are hard to read, it’s always a beautiful thing to find a sci-Fi stylish watch that is completely readable. This new watch from Diesel sports a dot-matrix screen behind a mirror surface, creating a look that’s both futuristic and stylish.

It can even be programmed to scroll messages up to 20 characters long if you have something you’d like to broadcast from your wrist. It’s available with either a mirrored patent strap or a black leather strap. Simple and futuristic for $170.

One Hour watch is confusing to onlookers

One Hour watch is confusing to onlookers
Jackson Pollock called, he wants his watch back. Lately, it’s become more fashionable to wear a watch that would puzzle anyone looking over your shoulder trying to get the time, then an everyday watch. Designer Denis Guidone came up with the idea that is simply named “Ora Unica,” or One Hour.

So how does one make any sense out of the scribbled line that occupies the face of this watch? Apparently, it has two circular faces, with the minute hand on one and the hour hand on the other. As time marches on, the scribble changes. I know, that explanation doesn’t really help. It’s crazy. I’m guessing it’s 11:40 or so in the pic. If I owned it, I know what I’d be saying. Time to get a new watch.

Cassette watch is all kinds of awesome

Cassette watch is all kinds of awesome
I don’t know who had the idea, but all I can say is that the end result is pretty awesome looking. It’s like wearing a mix tape on your wrist, without the often annoying music of the era. It’s made of sturdy stuff, namely stainless steel and features twin dials. One for hours, one for minutes.

The detail on the cassette face is really awesome and authetic looking. The hands almost look like they are advancing the tape. The only way it could possibly be any cooler is if it played real music, which it doesn’t. It will cost you about $70. Expect an 8-Track watch in the near future.

Braille concept watch for the blind

Braille watch for the blind
If you’re blind, you don’t have a ton of options…for anything really. Not many companies are making special gear for you. The gear you do have doesn’t get upgraded as much as regular people’s. For instance, how many watches do you see that cater to the blind? I’m sure they are out there, but there can’t be many.

Check out this braille watch conceived by David Chavez. The Haptica Braille watch will give the blind the time, so they don’t have to have someone else tell them what time it is. For the moment, it’s just a concept and the Braille dots are on tiny disks that rotate. Only half of the disk is showing. As the time goes by and the disks rotate, the dot pattern changes. Pretty simple way to design a braille watch.

TV remote control watch

TV remote control watch
What can you really say about a watch that controls your TV? This device would probably come in handy if you wanted to mess with somebody else who is watching TV, and change the channels, otherwise I can’t imagine actually replacing my remote with this cheap wrist-turd.

It’s got all the style of an old calculator watch that’s trying and failing badly at fitting in even at a Star Trek convention. The up-side is that it will only cost you $7.25, so if you think this is a good replacement for your TV remote, by all means get one. Even if the remote aspect stinks, at least you have a cheap watch, right?

TokyoFlash Infection Watch looks sick

TokyoFlash Infection Watch looks sick
…In a good way. Mostly. TokyoFlash continues to surprise us with unique watch designs. With their latest, the “Infection” watch, they apparently had sickness on their minds. I’m not sure if I like it or not. On one hand the design is cool, but I look at it and I feel like I need to be quarantined. It’s like ill pop-art.

The time is shown with 12 red, 11 yellow and four green LEDs, and you can choose have the display animated or just show the time. The curved watch is stainless-steel and water-resistant to 3ATM and sells for around $135.

Timex Life Index Watch is a downer

Timex Life Index Watch is a downer
There’s nothing more uplifting then wearing a watch that continually reminds you how short your time is on this Earth. This is a concept watch created by Timex and is actually more like a patch. It processes biometric information about your various health factors like fitness, stress, nutrition, sleep and your environment.

All of that data is then taken into account as it makes a guess as to how much time you’ve got left before you are pushing up daisies. I guess it’s a good motivator to diet and exercise. Who knows maybe you’ll start seeing days added to your life if you get yourself a Wii-Fit and knock it off with the ho-hos already.

Another watch cell phone with keypad surfaces

Another watch cell phone with keypad surfaces
Back in April we told you about Van Der Led’s WM2 cellphone watch. Well here’s another also featuring a keypad. Cell phone wrist watches have yet to really take off. There haven’t been many of course, but seeing another watch with a dedicated keypad tells me they may just start getting some respect.

The CECT WRIST looks like it’s doing a good job of copying Van Der Led’s WM2. The GSM phone also features a small 1.3″ TFT Touch screen, bluetooth, an FM radio, MP4 and 3GP video support, a WAP browser, an equalizer for playing MP3 files, a Voice recorder, calculator, and it’s memory can be expanded via Transflash cards. It retails for ₤151.57.

Watch the sky with the Planisphere watch

Watch the sky with the Planisphere watch
The Planisphere Watch will show you the constellations visible in the Northern Hemisphere (between 35 & 50 degrees latitude). Just turn the bezel so the current time is aligned with the date to determine which major constellations are visible. The watch features a 43mm diameter brass case and crystal dome lens with a rubber band that has stainless steel links.

It has quartz movement and a “super luminescent” dial that illuminates the star chart for 2-3 hours without batteries. It is a guaranteed nerd conversation starter, but the watch face is small, so it’s only going to to show a handful of constellations.

Chronoswiss Wristmaster: The straight jacket of watches

Chronoswiss Wristmaster: The straight jacket of watches
It might help to have arms like the hulk to wear this monstrosity. It’s yet another of those odd watches we love from Basel Fair. It’s not for the feint of heart and it’s not for puny men with spaghetti arms. It goes by the “Chronoswiss Wristmaster”. Look at the size of this thing. It master’s any wrist it attaches to. Putting it on must be like saddling a small horse.

It’s hailed as the First Automatic Board Watch for the Wrist, and features a double strap and display, consisting of a chronograph on the right and a standard display on the left. It measures a full 84mm x 42mm.

Plus Four Wristlet Route Indicator: Original GPS

Plus Four Wristlet Route Indicator: Original GPS
In the days before satellites frantically transmitted data to GPS receivers, there was at least one similar device making the rounds in London during the 20s. The Plus Four Wristlet Route Indicator had put maps squarely onto users’ wrists. It works the way it appears, basically using rolled up paper maps that show the route of a particular area.

The driver just had to turn the two knobs, which turn the rollers, thereby moving the paper maps. This Wristlet can actually store about twenty maps making it a pretty comprehensive navigation tool…For the time. To see the Plus Four Wristlet Route Indicator, you can check it out at the National Trust House where it is on display until June 1st.

D299i quad band cell phone watch

D299i quad band cell phone watch
This Cell Phone watch is pretty nice looking with a number of cool features, like a camera, E-Book reader, vibration, card slot and bluetooth, plus a built in 1.4 inch touch screen display.

You can actually write on the screen as the watch has hand writing recognition capabilities. I am not sure how many words you can write on a screen that size, but if you keep it simple you should be alright. The camera is 1.3 megapixels. It will cost you $249.99.
