Seiko is coming up with limited edition Star Wars watches that put famous characters like Droids, Darth Vader, Darth Maul, Yoda and a Storm Trooper at the back of Seiko timepieces, with a tad of their personalities all over the watches. Now we’d expect a limited edition watch to be slightly expensive than its peers, but this one goes straight through the roof. At the time of writing, the watch is priced at $1300 for pre-orders on Amazon Japan. Of course, not all watches are priced the same, but the $1300 range is a pretty good idea of the price these timepieces demand.
Nuclear power is soon coming to your hands, or more specifically, your wrists. The nuclear watch houses a tiny nuclear reactor powered by ~100 quadrillion radioactive hydrogen atoms. It’s been declared safe by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, so we guess it’s okay to use it.
Made especially for the wonderful people who tend to be late to well, everything, this watch simply does away with all the numbers, sending them away to a silent corner. To stay true to the feeling, the watch does incorporate the words “Whatever, I’m late Anyway.” Available here, and on Amazon.
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.
Most of us have trouble waking up with the alarm clock, and there have been quite a few variations to scare us shitless in the morning just so we wakeup on time. None of those however, would come close to the sheer overkill that is this concept creation by Tazu Rous.
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. Ninja Time Watch by Andy Kurovets shows the time stealthily, mimicking the face of a ninja with only the eyes visible. Eyes of the ninja function as dials of the clock, separately showing the hours and the minutes.
Clearly inspired by Dali’s paintings, the melting time warp shelf clock gives a new touch to time keeping. Although given its appearance, we refuse to believe that the clock simply means to show time. We suspect ulterior motives, wormholes, magic, armageddon, and a whole lot more conspiracy theories. costs $12.
Spanish designer Oriol Llahona has come up with an interesting design in shape of the Numero 1 watch. Circumventing convention, width of the watch’s tiny snakeskin band is quite small as compared to very dominant and wide face. 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.
