I have never worn a pocket watch, but if I did, the Manometrino, forthcoming from Italian watchmaker Giuliano Mazzuoli, would be my selection. Resembling a stethoscope or a scuba diver’s regulator, the Manometrino, close to “little gauge” in Italian, looks like a gentleman’s piece of jewelry. Continue reading
The Nooka watches are a wild set of wrist accessories. They are all adventurous redesigns of our traditional time-keeping devices. No longer are there the three hands cycling around the circle, or the easy-to-read digital numbers. Instead, the Nooka watches display the time with squares that accumulate according to the hour, or bars that slowly fill in more depending on how many minutes have gone by. While the options for Nooka are numerous, the Zub Zoo 40 and Zub Zayu stand out from the crowd. Continue reading
While some might say that the smartphone removes any need for single-function devices like watches, there are others who think the long-used wristwatch can evolve into something better. Some days you may want to leave your smartphone deep in your backpack with the ringer turned off.

Shouldn’t a watch for an astronaut reflect the dreamy impressiveness of his or her occupation? A plain and simple Timex timepiece seems too Earthly for the space traveler.
Swiss watch company Romain Jerome took on the task of creating a ticker that would reflect how unique the occupation of an astronaut is. “Spacecraft” is the new watch that should inspire even the most space-phobic earthlings to train to ride in a rocket. Continue reading
The Mutewatch is no ordinary wrist watch, it’s a functional piece of jewelry… Digital jewelry, if you will. It’s designed as a minimalistic bracelet, featuring a hidden touchscreen. Tap the flat surface or flick your wrist and its glowing LED display is activated. Continue reading
time / noun /
“The indefinite continued progress of existence and events in the past, present, and future regarded as a whole.”
Time is an element of life. It is a priceless organism that can neither be bought nor sold, but only observed or shared with another. The Hu(man) by Ross Lovegrove for Issey Miyake is not your average wristwatch. Sleek, modern, and austere, this novelty watch is artfully designed to be as an extension of the body. Continue reading
The new Phosphor watch is no ordinary wrist watch. It features a unique digital display that utilizes the revolutionary Electronic Ink – the same technology found in electronic displays, for example the Amazon Kindle.
What does it mean? It means you can configure it in various displays and styles, switching from standard numeric to a cool graphic hour clock, white-on-black or black-on-white – all with a flick of a switch! No wonder they call it Time Reinvented, as you’ve never seen a digital watch quite like this before. Continue reading
Even though the Orbo watch is still in the concept phase, I had to share it here because the design is pretty dang interesting. Besides its extremely unique look, I think the most amazing thing about the Orbo watch is that it uses both digital and analogue technologies. No more need to choose, you can have it all in one watch. Continue reading
