Trust Me Cufflinks

The current political atmosphere isn’t the most friendly, so perhaps these wouldn’t be appropriate to wear to work unless you’re employed at either party’s headquarters. Thoughts on another cufflink pairing: “Trust Me” and “I’m disappointed with politics” (“I’m disappointed with the current political atmosphere” wouldn’t fit).

Reminder Rings

Always forgetting to pay the bills or call your mom (or ‘mum’)? These rings will stay on your finger longer than a piece of string, and they spell out exactly what needs doing. They’re made from stretchy silicone, like the various bracelets that some people wear, and the set includes these inscriptions: Take Pills, Call Mum, Buy Gift, Return Book and Pay Bills. (It should be noted that it’s probably best to use these for the purpose in which they’re intended rather than some sort of fashion statement.)

Titanium Multi-Tool Collar Stays

These collar stays are the sort of thing a modern day MacGyver would have as it incorporates a half-phillips screwdriver, slotted screwdriver, thread cutter, and a bottle opener (no paperclip, though, sorry). Now, how often you’d need all of those functions, who knows, but some of them are bound to come in handy sooner or later. Like when you discover an errant thread on your way to an important meeting, or when you’re stuck in an elevator… with a few bottles of beer.

Use your gadget skills to navigate this watch; you simply tap, touch, pinch and swipe to access the functions. A vibrating alarm alerts the wearer to the time, and can be adjusted by swiping and tapping; see the video below for a quick demo. Recharge the battery via USP port (runs up to two weeks before charge is needed) and hand wash to clean the rubbery surface.

Analogue alert anyone? If you tend towards the non-digital, you’ll maybe like this square faced alarm-clock-inspired watch. Instead of chirping or beeping, the alarm creates a vibration on the wrist like a mobile phone.

Off-Axis Watch

A closer look at this watch will show that the viewing axis has been rotated 30 degrees, allowing you to read the time without bending your arm or wrist. I bet it would take a little while to get used to it, as we’re all so accustomed to the habit…

E Ink Digital Hour Watch

So, while this watch face is pretty fetching, what is especially notable is that it switches every half hour from white-on-black to black-on-white display. There’s also two modes, one for standard numerical digital and the other for a graphic hour clock. All in all, it might just be the perfect watch if you’re the sort that gets bored easily.
