Parmigiani is playing the age old cat and mouse game with this clock. The cat is trying its best to get hold of the mouse, and the presumably clever mouse is running for its life. Sadly for the cat, there is no catching this mouse. The cat moves in a one hour circuit, while the mouse continuously runs away from it. Should the cat and mouse end up in the same position, the mouse leaps away to escape the clutches of the cat.
Taking time towards the new film Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods Imperial Enterprises has come up with a new, Dragon Ball Z themed limited edition watch. Face of the watch shows the four-star dragon ball from the series, and can displays 24-hour time, fractions of seconds, and a calendar, and has a stopwatch function.
You need to have deep pockets if you want to own a Ferrari, but you got to have deeper pockets to afford this Ferrari watch. It’s not entirely an exclusive set, but for a lot of people who could afford a supercar with the prancing horse marque, the $300,000 Hublot MP-05 LaFerrari watch is probably out of the price range.
Pocket watches are cool, but sometimes people prefer to have watches around their wrists than their pockets. These nifty straps get around the issue, giving pocket watches straps, creating an overall retro modern view that is quite neat and nifty.
A new concept for a TokyoFlash watch, the Rorschach 2 concept looks at an e-paper watch that would tell time in the puzzle-style of TokyoFlash and somehow manage to do that in the randomness of a Rorschach test. The symmetrical ink-blot display hides the hours on the upper right side of the watch, while the minutes are displayed on the lower left. Overall, a very fascinating effect.
UK based designers Zeon have joined forces with Star Wars to come up with a collection of five timepieces for the famous franchise. The watches include Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, R2-D2, Stormtrooper and Boba Fett, all made with a clean interface and very clear design references. All timepieces are licensed and will come packaged in individually numbered, velvet lined boxes complete with a collector’s certificate.
The world is rife with rumors about an upcoming Apple iWatch, which has seemed eminent to many ever since the nano showed off its use as a watch.
Design studio Humans Since 1982 brought analog and digital into the same category with a very interesting style and fashion. An installation by the studio features a set of 288 analog clocks. Although, rather than show time, all these clocks work together to create one massive digital clock that displays time.
Taking the scenic route of minimalist beauty, the circuit wall clock by designer Stevan Djurovic looks simply like a circular hollow disk. The magic of time telling in the clock comes through two subtle beams of light that rotate around the clock, one on the inside and the other on the outside. The outside LED works as the hour hand, while the inner LED does its job as the minute hand. It’s still just a concept and will hopefully see the light of the day very soon.
For most of us, the work of the alarm clock is to ring, go to snooze, get switched off or just be ignored. While that works fantastically for the sleepy mind, it’s not so great for waking up on time. While most people would shrug it off and try to be on time the next day, designer Sankalp Sinha decided the idea needed more of a kick, and a shock, so he could make it to class on time.
