Watches

hrmk_xaviers_school_watch

Want to pretend you attend Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters instead of your boring Danger Room-less institution? This watch from ThinkGeek might help. The stylish design isn’t exactly subtle, but since it’s black, you can pair it with multiple outfits. It has a stainless steel caseback, a silicone band, and will not give you any sort of mutant powers.

The HDD Watch takes a tiny piece of old technology and turns it into a unique and super nerdy timepiece. It’s the work of a Frenchman named Jean Jérôme who builds the watches out of obsolete Microdrives and even gives them hands that look like reading arms. He also created a printed watchband that looks like a circuit board.

The watch is currently up for funding on indiegogo where he set a goal of raising enough cash to build 500 additional watches. He’s more than doubled his funding goal with several weeks still remaining on his campaign. You can secure a watch for about $120 and have it on your wrist sometime later this month.

You can channel your inner spy with this watch that shoots a real, working laser. It’s not just for looks either—it will actually destroy stuff as demonstrated in this video. This gadget has carbon fiber-accents and an integrated 1,500-milliwatt blue laser that will fire for five to ten minutes before the battery dies.

It’s the work of Patrick Priebe who isn’t sharing the details of exactly how he made the thing, because can you just imagine the chaos? He is considering selling them in very small quantities at a price somewhere over $300. Hey, if you’re a globetrotting spy, that’s just a drop in the bucket.

1e2e_back_to_the_future_flux_capacitor_watch

Time traveling isn’t a reality just yet, but I feel like we’re getting closer because a Flux Capacitor watch exists. ThinkGeek is offering a digital watch modeled on Doc Brown’s gadget from Back to the Future and it tells the time and date using Flux Capacitor lights and time circuit LED. Here’s how it breaks down:

Time is divided into hours, minutes first digit, minutes second digit – so it looks confusing, but is very easy to read. (Example: 10 lights, 5 lights, 3 lights = 10:53 – and it repeats)

When you’re tired of being in the moment, switch to the “Time Travel” mode and the time circuit will display a random date. The only problem is that you’ll have to run 88mph to make it work.

See what it looks like on the wrist after the break.

This watch is a clever (and surprisingly elegant) tribute to the USS Enterprise. It’s an officially licensed product with “USS Enterprise NCC-1701″ on the glass over a face that is etched to look like the saucer section of the ship. The watch comes with a faux-leather band and fits wrists 7″ to 9″.

Smartwatches are the wave of the future, so it’s a little odd to see the Windows 95 logo appear on one. The credit goes to 16-year old Corbin Davenport who, for reasons no one will ever understand, did this to his Samsung Gear Live smartwatch. It’s accomplished with emulator software available for Android and it’s sure to turn your smartwatch in to the envy of, um, well, find someone still stuck in the ’90s and they’ll be super impressed.

This beautiful watch contains sand right from the Tunisian set where the Star Wars Tatooine scenes were filmed. It’s currently a kickstarter which is fully funded with plenty of time to pledge and get your own watch. Each case is made of solid 316L medical-grade steel with Seiko-Epson quartz movements and leather bands. The sand is sealed inside the case and actually moves around as you move your wrist.

Funds from the kickstarter will be used to make the watches and also to help restore the crumbling sets in Tunisia. Some are even at risk of being swallowed by growing sand dunes. This is the second series of watches and it will be the last since the molds are reaching the ends of their lifespans.

These are being made in limited quantities so don’t delay if you want one on your wrist!

Gameboy watch

Smart phones may have replaced watches for most people, but neat collections like this make me want to get back into the habit of wearing a time telling device. Imgur user FloopedthePig has some exceptionally cool wrist watches such as a Nintendo Gameboy watch (my favorite), a cute BMO from Adventure Time design, a Muppet Show style, and a Super Mario 3 watch that’s also a game. I hope he wears a different one every day.

Is it a watch? Is it an arcade cabinet? It’s both! This is a functioning watch that’s built inside of a miniature classic arcade cabinet with asteroids for the hour and minute hands and a spaceship on the second hand. The fire button makes it all light up along with some pew-pew noises. Sign up now to be notified as soon as it’s ready to ship in March.
