Jelly Watch

This watch is like one of those old school holograms where when you look at it at one angle you see one thing and look at it another you see something else. To see the time look at it straight on, twist your wrist a few degrees to see the date, and angle it another way to display a range of emoticons. Why you would need to see emoticons on your watch, I’m not sure. They are annoying enough on your computer. 😉

Nooka V2 Watches

I swoon. The Nooka Zoo V2 (shown on right) and the Nooka Zot V2 (on left) gives me heart palpatations and sweaty palms. It’s too big for my dainty wrist, but goodness, if you’ve got an arm hefty enough to hold such a fine design why not buy it? Watches as nice as this are worth the investment.

“The Nooka Zoo V2 sports a full-face mineral crystal lens. Smudged? Just wipe clean on your designer t-shirt. New features include a chronograph for timing poker games, and an alarm for morning wakeup. Patented design, stainless steel, measures 35mm x 35mm x 9mm. Waterproof.”

    KAJ watches by Karim Rashid

    Lately, I’ve been enchanted by this cranberry/fuchsia color and it seems that almost everything I buy lately is this color. It’s like those birds that are attracted to shiny objects. I’m not proud of it, but I had to acknowledge this certain weakness I’m having for it lately.

    It’s designed by Karim Rashid for Alessi, and the collection, in his words “is symbolic of technology, the cosmos, and the passage and cyclical nature of time”

    Also available in brown, black, and silver-grey.
    polyurethane case & strap, acrylic crystal and 3ATM water resistant.

    It will be available in October but you can order today.

    Ballistic Rose Pin

    Mark my words, black is back. It went away for awhile, but it’s coming back for Fall. Especially for accessories. You know, the basics: shiny bracelets, big chunky necklaces, bulletproof rose pins, etc.

    “The young New York artist/designer turns a delicate accent into a modern metaphor on love and safety. Made of black heavy-duty ballistic nylon, Wong’s “bulletproof” bloom is both a high-tech talisman for the tender-hearted and wry fashion statement.”

    Rolex replica bracelet

    Look at this beauty. It’s a replica Rolex watch which is vacuum sealed in leather and then plated in gold.

    “The hidden watch transcends typical associations of wealth or at least the accepted appearance of such by silencing the “bling” and isolating the emerging form. By stripping the user of this visible mechanical aid, one is forced to rely on a sense of personal time or the help of others to determine the hour.”

    Nose Necklace

    Oh, what the hell (or heck, if you prefer). It’s a gold-plated comedy nose necklace! It’s designed by Marcel Wanders, and I personally think he’s got to be one of the best designers out there simply based on this product here (I like his other stuff quite a bit, but I’m just saying, this takes the cake). Funniness. There’s some bad news though- I couldn’t find a U.S. retailer, so if you want it, you’re gonna have to deal with the whole overseas shipping thing.

    Material: Silver gold plated
    Dimensions: 4.5 cm

    Digital watch light numbers

    Now I’m torn…I thought perhaps I had found the perfect watch (see previous posts), but look at this one! What to do?! It doesn’t have all the bells a whistles that some other watches have, but I think it completely makes up for all that in it’s simplicity.

    designer: Flemming Bo Hansen
    materials: Polypropylene, stainless steel

    Starck Digital Watch (Women’s)

    I’ve been looking for a watch and I think I’ve found quite possibly the perfect one. The large numbers show the current time while the small ones indicate a second time zone, alarm, date, chronograph (!), and countdown timer. And the face lights up. (Philippe Starck, 2000-2001)

    Compass Ring

    Have you ever been lost in a new city and tried to read a map? And then when it came time for you to figure out which way north was, did you look for the sun and try to remember if the sun sets in the east or west? Well, I have. And it’s confusing. Avoid the trouble with this compass ring.
