Devon Works Tread 1 bulletproof watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on April 20th, 2010

Man, this is one awesome looking watch. It has a ton of amazing detail. But looks aren’t all the Devon Works Tread 1 has going for it. It’s also the first bulletproof watch we’ve ever seen. Perfect if bad guys are aiming at your wrist. Though I suppose the impact would still shatter your wrist. It won’t protect you where it counts.

How much would you pay for a bullet-proof watch? Well, you’ll have to pay $15,000 if you want this one. I suppose you could do the Wonder Woman thing and deflect bullets with this thing, just know that it is still gonna hurt.

Moonwatch, the Werewolf’s new best friend

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on April 8th, 2010

One of the problems with being a werewolf, aside from the fact that you change once a month and go on a killing spree, is that it’s a pain to keep track of the lunar cycle. What if you forget to mark it on a calendar? Well, the Moonwatch will show you the time either by hour or by phase of the moon, so you’ll never be caught off guard again.

That way if you want, you can lock yourself in a cage ahead of time. The rest of us thank you ahead of time for being a responsible Werewolf and using this watch, which is not available yet, but hopefully soon.

Adidas Calculator Watch

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

Adidas wants a piece of the calculator watch market and they hope that you will choose theirs to unleash your inner math nerd. This one comes in several colors and looks super retro. The colors include black, gold,blue and lilac colorways.

These calculator watches may be awesome, but make sure you stick to simple math. I don’t want to hear a news story about how some dude tried to do his taxes on his wrist watch and got himself into trouble. Just use it for simple stuff and to look cool.

Instant Trend watch is too dang complicated to read

Posted in Watches by Shane McGlaun on April 2nd, 2010

At some point we need to draw the line on crazy watches that have displays you need a mathematics degree and an instruction manual to read. I want my clock to have numbers and just tell me what time it is, not impress my friends by how complicated it is.

Tokyoflash has unveiled its latest, and very complicated new watch called the Instant Trend. The thing has the expected majorly complex face to show what time it is. It also has a normal readout that can show the time in up to four zones at once.

1/4 Watch has no hands

Posted in Watches by Shane McGlaun on March 29th, 2010

Normally when I am talking about something that has turned up on Yanko Design, we are talking about a product that is a mere concept and will probably never be able to be purchased. Yanko has a cool watch today called the 1/4 Watch that you can buy.

The watch come in red, blue, black, and white colors and can be purchased for $85. The watch has a case that measures 39mm x 31mm x 7mm and is water resistant. The case is made from stainless steel and it has a mineral glass crystal.

Tokyoflash Binary Flow concept watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on March 24th, 2010

Here’s a watch that Neo from The Matrix would love. As usual, it’s from those crazy kids at Tokyoflash, so good luck deciphering the time on this one. The watch can be recharged via USB, and the display is e-paper, which makes it look cool.

With all of the cool watches that Tokyoflash offers I don’t know why anyone still wears a conventional watch. Oh yeah, they want to know the time easily. I would wear this one though. Pretty neat.

Watch3 watch is a concept you can buy today

Posted in Watches by Shane McGlaun on March 22nd, 2010

Concept watches seem to popup all the time and they typically have a cool design that we know deep down will never make it to store shelves. If you are tired of seeing concept watches you can’t buy, the Watch3 is for you.

This watch looks like a concept, but you can grab one now. Assuming you are willing to cough up $570 and the limited run of 100 units hasn’t run out. The watch has numbers printed on the back of the crystal that are only visible when the hour hand is on them.

The diameter of the stainless steel case is 38mm and the face is 6.7mm thick. The watch is constructed by hand by Swiss watchmakers and uses a quartz movement. The strap is made from leather and the face glows thanks to phosphorescent paint.

Cal-Q-Tek 2000 calculator watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on March 21st, 2010

Even though there isn’t any real reason to wear one today, calculator watches always bring back memories of the 80s. If you like the retro style of a calculator watch on your wrist, the Cal-Q-Tek 2000 calculator watch should do nicely.

The style is pretty cool and at just $18, you won’t need a calculator to figure out if you can afford it or not. Heck it may even come in handy. Maybe at the grocery store or when you balance your checkbook.

Cabestan Nostromo watch is full of gears

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on March 16th, 2010

The Cabestan Nostromo watch is one of those watches that you stare at in amazement and picture all of those gears turning. It was inspired by the ship from the Alien movie, hence the name. The Nostromo combines traditional watchmaking with “retro-futuristic audacity”‘

I can only assume that that describes the titanium case and Superluminova phosphorescent coating. You know this one is going to cost you quite a bit.

Past Present Future Watch is not what your wife wants for your anniversary

Posted in Watches by Shane McGlaun on March 15th, 2010

When your wife drops hints about past, present and future stuff for your anniversary, it’s not this watch she means. Yanko Design has a new watch that you can actually buy on their store.

The watch has no numbers on the face and has labels reading past at 11oclock, present at 12 and future at 1. The watch has a couple turning wheels inside that align to show you the time in numbers that look digital.

E Clock is like having an e-book on your wrist

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on March 14th, 2010

TokyoFlash, those makers of all kinds of wacky and fun watches, have done it again. Now they have created an E-ink display watch to accompany the current e-book craze. Looks pretty sweet. The E Clock can tell the time using normal numbers, or by using patterns of dashes and lines if you like to be mysterious.

It will connect via Bluetooth to your phone, alerting you to calls and texts through vibration or a blinking indicator. It might not look like it, but the band is made from flexible stainless steel. If enough people vote for it, they will make it and offer it up. What do you think?

Louis Moinet Jurassic Tourbillon Watch has dinosaur bones inside

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on March 12th, 2010

You know you’re rich when your watch has dinosaur bones in it. The Louis Moinet Jurassic Tourbillon Watch is not your usual watch and it has fragments of 130-million-year-old dinosaur bones inside. We aren’t sure why. Probably because when you’re rich anything is possible. No matter how stupid.

It also has some other nice features, like an 18K white gold case with 56 diamonds on the bezel. Now archeologists will be forced to steal the watches of the wealthy to learn about the past.

Happy Hour Watch will open beer bottles

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on March 10th, 2010

Some watches help you look good, others help you to just keep an eye on the time. The Happy Hour watch will help you get drinking after a hard day at the office, making every hour a potential happy hour. Aside from telling the time, the most useful feature this watch has is its bottle-opening buckle.

The watch face has only one hour marker, 5-O’clock. It will cost you $49.95. That’s an expensive bottle opener, but what the hell. As long as you have access to a nice cold beer, it’s all good.

4N watch looks crazy

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on March 9th, 2010

The 4N watch looks awesomely retro with numbers everywhere. It accomplishes the unusual look thanks to a disc-based mechanism that rotates all four numbers into position, giving you the current time.

The three discs are made of aluminum or a titanium alloy and the MVT01 movement is exposed to the eye. As usual with this kind of luxury watch, you can expect to pay a hefty price for this kind of style. There will only be 16 available worldwide.
