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.

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 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.
