Analarm

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.

Ion plated stainless steel ergonomic curved case with ultra-thin profile.

Nimbo Slap-on Watch

The Nimbo Slap-on watch is a new, thickset silicon watch band which just slaps on the wrist with no fuss of buckles or snaps. It’s available in a seven bright colors (including black and white) and comes in both analog and digital versions. Because of it’s generous size, it looks best on a bare wrist so it’s doesn’t compete with sleeves or other jewelry. It definitely has a very casual feel to it, but I could definitely see it being a wardrobe staple for designer/architect types.

Mine is black digital, and I love how it has a great visual impact to it. Thanks to UMA for sending us one to check out in person.

Littlefly Rings

If you ever wished you could wear your favorite book, your wish has come true. Jeremy May makes jewelry from books, and yes, the results are a literary success. By laminating sheets together and sculpting to achieve the desired shape, he’s created one-of-a-kind pieces that show hints of the texts and images held within. The final piece is cleverly returned to the cavity in the book for presentation or safekeeping. There’s really quite a variety of shapes and sizes, and his site is very worth perusing should you be in the market for appreciation or purchase.

Prices range from 185 to 1050, as each piece is handmade and unique.

Kiri Watch by Masayuki Kurokawa

I really, really don’t like wearing watches. They all seem so “look at me”, but I wouldn’t mind wearing this one…it seems so shy and apologetic in a way; even the lens is frosted. Issey Miyake’s Twelze comes close to achieveing the same effect, but Kurokawa’s is even more humble (the clear strap almost disappears against your skin), less designer label, and a fraction of the Miyake price.

Designer: Masayuki Kurokawa
Watchface: 1.33 inches
Length: 7 to 8.5 inches (from first to last hole)
Zinc alloy, glass, and silicone
