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.
Purchase Information:Price: $85.00

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.

I’ve never been a fan out of watches without numbers but I’ll make an exception for these watches by Agni Tilla.

Prices range from $35-50.

Nice, eh? Not sure if you guessed already, but these two watches were inspired by a soccer ball. Score!

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
Purchase Information:Price: $149.00

I remember being in high school and the inner-city-cool-kid thing to do was collect candy-colored plastic watches from fast food happy meals and <gasp> wear them. Thankfully, I never quite fit in and managed to make it through without succumbing to peer pressure. Made of stretchy silicone and water resistant to 30 meters, this unisex (and stackable) watch is a more stylish nod to the days of yore. (The test tube is just clever packaging.)
Available in a rainbow of colors and three sizes: 6, 7, and 8 inches long

What a lovely idea: this range of fold-out paper jewellery is intended for the owner to assemble each month, for all year long. Also, if you don’t want to go the whole year route, you could just go with the Birthday Ring, £10.00, which is one ring for whichever month you’d like.
The collection consists of twelve ring designs which are laser-cut and engraved from 200g/m2 textured white paper come with engraved recycled brown envelope.
Purchase Information:Price: £45.00

These typeface necklaces remind me a little of these, obviously due to the same material and construction method. These are super cute and would be a nice gift for your favorite graphic designer friend for the upcoming holidays.

Seeing that Jacob Jensen designed this watch, it’s no surprise really that it’s both simple and elegant. It looks like a modern classic.

Case size: 1.2″h x 1″w

Awhh-yeah. Instead of the glitter, show off some bills (or should I say billz?) for a change. Umm, yes, they are one dollar bills, so maybe it’s not the most expensive, but it’s a set of six that you can mix it up however you want, which is a nice option. But $180, you say? Hmm…if it was a hundred dollar bill would that make the price point easier to swallow?
Get creative with your cash and your cuffs with this set of six mix-and-match cufflinks. Taken from different parts of the one dollar bill, this set of six cufflinks can be mixed and matched to spell different things or send cryptic messages (like “eye” “do”). Made in Canada. Comes in a velvet jewelry box.
Materials: copper, metal
Size: .75″ L x .75″ W
Purchase Information:Price: $180.00

Faceted and fabulous, this watch keeps time in cubic style.
Designed by Wil Alsop and rugged at a glance, the Daytimer feels comfortable with its good fit on the wrist, while its 3D display naturally catches attention. Organic EL Display: The high-luminance organic EL display simply shows time, a date, and a day of the week. Graphic display starts by pressing the “A” button. 9 different graphics are displayed every time, followed by time and a day of the week. Architectural Design: This unique cubic style, like an architectural structure on the arm, was generated based on architectural methods to pursue a cubic object. The glass is made of acrylic.
Designer: Will Alsop and Federico Grazzini

Sometimes the simplest things can make everyday rituals more enjoyable. Take for instance this black matte aluminum box to house your man/woman jewelry. Felt pads protect and separate your valuables without any fussy decorative elements, making it a breeze to select your favorites when doing your daily dressing.
This system – a preconfigured box with modular pads – combines the modern durability of aluminum with the age-old warmth of 100% fine wool felt, all with a burst of bold color.
