We guess the iPod Nano did a pretty good job of settling in as a watch, but that doesn’t stop some people from hoping that Apple would come out with a full fledged watch one day. These renderings by Swedish designer Anders Kjellberg imagine what an iWatch might look like. The concept claims FaceTime capabilities, Bluetooth, WiFi, iTunes, Google Maps and other apps.

Everybody knows Ninjas exist, but you can’t really see them unless they want you to. Stealth is the way of the ninja, even when they appear in a form so benign as a watch.

Spanish designer Oriol Llahona has come up with an interesting design in shape of the Numero 1 watch.

By way of comfort, tt might be a pain to deal with this watch but as far as looks are concerned, it is quite a treat.
Luna Concept watch appears to be quite a simple watch as compared to the traditional offerings from Tokyoflash. An entry into the design contest, the watch has been designed primarily for women. Australian designer Nigel designed the watch to be quirky, functional and something that would find appeal in young women. Time is displayed by three flowers on the band, and of course, the simplistic digital display.
Chain Clocks are somewhat complex, but mostly intriguing timepieces with a very simple display. Numbers are displayed along the length of a chain that moves around with gears, creating an interesting visual experience. The idea was to make a timepiece that was simple, yet complex enough to attract interest.
