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.

planetarium watch 1

While smartphones have taken the place of a watch for many people, there are certain aesthetics a phone can’t replace. This 44mm Midnight Planétarium watch is from Van Cleef & Arpels’ Poetic Astronomy series is a perfect example. You read the watch by looking at the shooting star which rotates on the rim of the face. It gets fancier: the watch features the Earth and five other planets (made of precious and semi-precious tones of course) moving in accurate rotation. The movement takes 396 parts.

It’s gorgeous and priced at $245,000.

The only problem here is deciding which of these watches to wear each day. There’s Wonder Woman, Captain America and Man of Steel as officially licensed DC Comics products. They have the logos of their individual heroes and have adjustable straps. Water resistant and battery operated, they’ll make you feel like you’re the hero!

The latest unique watch offering from ToykoFlash is the Kisai Rorschach ePaper watch. It’s tricky to read until you know how it works. Hours are displayed on the top right and minutes are on the bottom left with both reflected in mirror images to create the Rorschach inkblot. If you see a demonic face instead of the time, you might want to get that checked out.

It also features a date display and an alarm. The numbers and background can even trade colors for easier reading at night. The watch is available in several colors with a leather or stainless strap and takes just a standard watch battery.

atomic wristwatch

Do you need to feel confident that you have the precise time? Then you need an atomic clock wristwatch. Besides being the first of its kind, the Cesium 133 from Bathys Hawaii may be the nerdiest watch ever. It has its own self-contained cesium atomic oscillator which means it is insanely accurate. You’ll only lose a single second every 1,000 years.

It may look incredibly clunky, but the Cesium 133 still has more time in development. According to A Blog to Watch, Bathy’s is working on the following:

The final version of the Cesium 133 watch will have some LED status lights and a more attractive case. The prototype is 60mm wide by 50mm tall, and 23mm thick. The final version will have a light-weight carbon fiber case, be smaller, and retain the classic Bathys moon phase dial.

I can’t wait to see the finished product.

The Click Button watch is the must-have watch for gamers. Instead of just displaying the time like usual, you have to press the little arcade-style button that is the face of the watch to get the LED display to light up. It comes in a rainbow of colors, just like the lights that used to flash all around you in the local arcade.
