LIP Mach 2000 Dark Master watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on March 25th, 2008

LIP Mach 2000 Dark Master watch
This LIP Mach 2000 Dark Master watch is retro-awesome. The design is pretty true to the original, with the movement updated with more-modern quartz tech. The future looks about the same now as it did in the 70′s. It has a bit of a 2001:A Space Odyssey feel to it and it would also be right at home in any old James Bond movie.

If the candy-colored stems aren’t to your liking, there are more subdued color schemes, which all look pretty amazing. The $520 price tag might scare you, but awesomeness has it’s price.

Sand + time = awesome looking watch

Sand + time = awesome looking watch
I hate to break it to the young, but the hourglass didn’t originate with the cursor on your computer screen. It’s been around for centuries as a crude yet fairly reliable way of measuring time. Designer Pavel Balykin is obviously not afraid to use it! In fact, Balykin is hoping it makes a comeback with this very retro timepiece.

It’s called the “Sand+Time” and you might notice the none too subtle digital hour glass screen saver mode. It’s a “screen saver” mode, because the watch doesn’t actually count time for you while this feature is active. It just looks really, really cool and Sci-Fi like. To get the real time, push a button and the numbers will appear. I’m not sure what it would take to get this concept into production, but I want one. It’s what the future is supposed to look like.

Diesel Multi Display watch looks tough
This new watch from the Diesel Signature collection has a huge dial and features a chronograph as well as four miniature movements. It’s actually pretty nice looking and appears to be rugged at the same time, sporting a black genuine leather strap and stainless steel case, with stainless steel plates and Diesel screws.

The gunmetal sunray dials have a black logo, texture and applied silver indexes as well as a Mohican head insignia. The case size is 45mm wide x 58mm length x 15mm in height. It will cost you a whooping $595 which might make your heart jump a tad, but hey it’s water Resistant up to 3 ATM. Looks like Diesel is not just expensive at the pumps, but for your wrist as well.

Citizen Astrodea Celestial watch is awesome

Astrodea Celestial watch
To quote Dave Bowman from the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey, “My God, it’s full of stars!”. A whole watch face that looks like the cosmos? Count me in. The Astrodea collection from Citizen looks sweet. The watch face has a 35° view of the heavens as seen from the Northern Hemisphere, which rotates in real time, showing 1,109 stars and 169 cluster galaxies. It has other features that include measurements like equinox indications, constellation markers, location of the sun, solar position, sunrise and sunset times and the daily duration of sunshine. That might be too much info for me, I just dig the looks.

It comes in both a blue or gold face version, with stainless steel case and band with non-reflective sapphire glass. And since the face is so detailed, it even has a 10x magnifier for close-up inspection. Both versions are available for $585.

Ultimate gamblers slot-machine watch sells for $625,000
Wynn Las Vegas has sold this one of a kind watch by Girard-Perregaux, one of the oldest and most respected Swiss watch manufacturers in the world. The price? $625,000. The slot machine function is fully functional and fully mechanical. It’s activated by a lever arm on the side. The watch is known as the Vintage 1945 Jackpot Tourbillon. Yes, that’s a ton of money, but they don’t call it gambling for nothing.

This was no easy watch to make. It took nearly three-and-a-half years to develop from concept to production. In all, there are 501 pieces in the watch. Don’t be sad that you missed your chance at this beautiful watch though, the company plans to make 40 similar watches.

New cell phone watches by LG

New cell phone watches by LG
LG Electronics showed off their Watch Phone concept during the Mobile World Congress 2008. Apparently, they want us all to communicate Get Smart style in the future.

Not much is known about these at the moment, except that it supports voice recognition function by using Bluetooth, enabling users to make calls or send text messages without using a keypad. Check out the video after the jump. These are nice looking watches as far as the face goes and since they are from LG, I’m sure the quality would be better then others on the market. Unfortunately, these will likely never come to market. At least, not as they are. But we can hope.

TicketTime: boarding card & watch combo
If you’re sick and tired of resetting your watch to a different time zone each time you board a flight, TicketTime is here to help. TicketTime is a boarding card with an actual attached watch that’s preset to the time zone of your destination by the airline company.

All you have to do is tear off the watch and wear it around your wrist before getting on the plane. This concept was designed to eliminate one of the headaches of frequent flyers who often end up wearing the wrong time on their wrists. The watch doubles as your return flight ticket and is returned to the airline during check-in.

Citizen Alterna Eco-Drive watch

Citizen Alterna Eco-Drive watch
Citizen’s Eco-Drive line of watches run on natural sunlight as well as any artificial light absorbed through the crystal and dial. They claim that it converts any kind of light into electrical energy and that runs the watch. As long as it gets regular exposure to light, the watch will continuously recharge itself for a lifetime. The Radio-Controlled aspect comes into play with the ability to have radio synchronization on demand, or you can let the watch do the synch automatically.

The Citizen Alterna VO10-6573H features a durable aluminum case and is water-proof up to 100m. The watch is 10.2mm thick and only weighs 104g, with an accuracy +/- 15 seconds a month . It’s got a nice eye catching design overall, which it better have, since it will cost you $339.

Turntable watch: vinyl on your wrist

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on January 21st, 2008

vinyl on your wrist
Here’s a great watch for DJ’s or record enthusiasts that want to proclaim their undying love for vinyl. Designed by FludWatches, the TableTurns watch sports a face that looks like a miniature Technics 1200 turntable. The visual details are all there in retro glory, but it won’t play tiny records, much to my sadness.

The clock hands rotate, so in a way it may look as if the record is spinning…very slowly. Each watch ships in it’s own miniature flight case for added coolness. The watch comes with either a black leather or stainless steel band, and is available from TurntableLab for only $59.This is definitely one of the cooler watches out there right now. If it actually played tiny records, I’d be sold, but for now I’ll stick with hoping someone comes out with an actual mini iPod watch.
