Watches

Frost Watch White

“All watches tell time; the best watches tell a lot about you. The clockmaker designs elegant timepieces that make big, bold statements about the wearer. Driven by the aesthetic principle “when art becomes a timepiece without costing a fortune,” the manufacturer has designed a line of unisex fashion watches that command attention. These designer masterpieces are available to you in a wide assortment of styles and distinctive wrist bands.

The opaque frosted crystal echoes the look and feel of a crisp Nordic winter. Like an elegant skater, the hands carve out time as they sweep across the watch face.

Stealth Watch by Daniel Jakobsson

I haven’t gone berserk over a watch in a long time, but this is so simple and cool that I’m sort of verklempt.

al5010 Watch

Pardon the pun, but this watch is timeless. Designed by Piero Lissoni for Alessi, I could see this on the wrist of any man for years to come. Clean, simple design, the square face is elegantly rounded, with a full-sweeping second hand.

Dot Matrix Watch

I think I saw this on Gizmodo.com a couple of weeks ago, and figured since I keep thinking about it, I might as well post it. It might be a little too big for my dainty wrist, but for anybody else, I’d say go ahead and get it.

Available in a tan leather wristband with yellow lights or a black leather wristband with red lights.

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.

    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.

    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)
