You Can Change the Design of this E-ink Watch Wherever You Wish

If the main reason of buying more wrist watches than you really need is because of your desire for design variety, then we think the e-ink powered FES Watch might just be right up your timepiece-obsessed alley. While e-ink application in watches isn’t new, this particular item designed by Japanese design studio TAKT Project takes application of this power-sipping e-paper to a whole new level by applying it to the watch strap as well. Both the watch face and the strap are independent of each other, which means you can change the design of the face and the strap individually, thus resulting in a palette of 24 designs to choose from. And being an e-ink device, this thing is a quite power-sipper too: each charge will offer you around two months of time telling. Part of the battery longevity is attributed by the incorporation of a motion sensor which turns on the watch face only when you turn your wrist to look at the watch.

Diesel Mr. Daddy Chronograph Watch

other than your natural-born look, you can’t deny the one other thing that going to catch the people’s attention is your outfit. so basically, most folks won’t be bothered by your time piece – unless the time piece is as big as the Diesel Mr. Daddy Square Chronograph Watch (DZ7285). at 64mm, it may not be as humongous as the Grand Daddy, but the fact that it is square, it will certainly be no less striking on any wrist. other features include a cool iridescent crystal that “changes” shades when view from different angle, a unique brown leather strap, accented with stitched nylon, black ion-plated steel case, Japanese quartz movement, water resistant up to 50 meters (5ATM or about 164 feet), and of course, the usual chronograph functionalities. if a 64mm square doesn’t make you or at least your wrist stands out, we don’t know what else will. the Diesel Mr. Daddy Chronograph Watch is available now from Diesel web store for $325 a piece.

Kisai Neutron Motion Sensor LED Watch

can’t get enough of odd time telling devices? here’s another new stuff from TokyoFlash, dubbed the Kisai Neutron Motion Sensor LED Watch, to add to your collection. honestly, you can’t really tell that it is something that tells time if not for the fact that it does bear the familiar watch form. behind the grill-like design is where the time and date will display – digit by digit, to tell you either the time or date, depending on which button you press. you can choose to activate the time telling (available in 12- and 24-hour format) by pressing the button, or thanks to its built-in motion sensor, with a flick of the wrist (no doubt our favorite route), or you could choose to had it permanently on. a nice touch would be its ability to choose between fade out or scrolling digits and also the option to choose how the date should be displayed (DD:MM or MM:DD format, also digit by digit).

Tom Dixon Eclectic Block Watch

if clean, sharp lines are your cuppa of English Breakfast, then the Tom Dixon Eclectic Block Watch might just tickles your fancy. the first time piece to come out of the British design label, the Eclectic Block Watch is crafted from the most minimal components possible and presented in a unique square case that’s stamped out from a block of pure stainless steel and plated in rose gold. under the hood is a Swiss movement for the clockwork, while time telling is via an etched dial, encased by a crystal face. hour and minute hands are in white and black respectively, while the second hand is coated in contrasting red accent for that striking and yet subtle appearance. and for the individualist in you, you be glad to know that each time piece is laser etched with its own unique number for that added exclusivity.

Diesel Limited Edition Grand Daddy Chronograph Watch

when Diesel named this massive time piece ‘Grand Daddy’, it is for obvious reasons. first off, it has a ridiculously oversized 73mm x 66mm case (it’s “mega-oversized” in Diesel’s own words) and it has not one, but four individual set of chronograph functions. it may sounds like the Italian fashion label has overdone with this watch, but hey, how else do you stand out from ocean of fashion watches without a couple of out-of-this-world features? expect the usual chronograph functionality, however, we are totally amazed by how those limited number of pushers and crowns worked to switch between the four sets of chronograph. then again, how many analog chronograph watch users actually use those thing? seriously.

Kisai Breathalyzer Watch

for starter, you shouldn’t even be driving if you have the intention to consume alcohol. however, if you are ever caught in an unexpected happy situation, then be sure your have the Kisai Breathalyzer Watch (officially, Kisai Intoxicated LCD Watch) slapped on your wrist. not only does this LCD-based watch tells time and date, it also has a built-in breathalyzer which could be use as a last-ditch effort to keep your sobriety in check after you down a few cold brews. the result (after breathing into the sensor located at the side of the watch) is presented as in color and BAC range. a green backlight means you are sober; yellow means you are border lining; and red means time to surrender your car key and hitch a ride. to be honest, nobody can really vouch for its accuracy (that’s why we said “last-ditch”) and so, we will take whatever that’s presented with a pinch of salt.

CST-01 E-ink Wrist Watch by Central Standard Timing

CST-01 E-ink Wrist Watch by Central Standard Timing
it is year 2013 and the world is nothing close to what that have been foretold by sci-fi movies. not even our basic time keeper, the wrist watch, is anything close to the ‘future’ but that’s going to change with the CST-01 E-ink Wrist Watch by Central Standard Timing. so what’s so ‘futuristic’ about the CST-01? for starter, it is a mere 0.8mm thin and there’s no differentiation between the band and watch face – the whole time piece is as one, much like a bracelet. crafted from stainless spring steel, its maker daringly etch off 0.5mm to create a pocket of sort for the necessary E-ink components Continue reading CST-01 E-ink Wrist Watch by Central Standard Timing

artist and consumer product collaborations are not new but what sets the Mutewatch Svart apart from the rest is, Mutewatch happens to be the pioneer of touchscreen watch and the Svart could very well be the first touchscreen watch collaboration with an artist. we remembered the first touchscreen watch that supports gestures to be an alluring red hue and somewhat abstract time piece which tickles our fancy but for the new Svart, though the watch’s form remains the same, as with the functionality, it takes on a new colorway Continue reading Mutewatch Svart
