Watches

steampunk-watch-starling-main

Disney Imagineer Terri Hardin along with Silicon Valley inventor Frank Cohen have created a whimsical collection of vintage pocket watches that glow in brilliant colors. Starling pocket watches are available in six intricate designs with a calming light show that illuminates the time:

“These remarkable time pieces are the tangible embodiment of intangible concepts. They illuminate with your touch, the Chillovean lights dance about as if to whisper the secrets it holds to its owner. Chillovean lights feature multitudes of different random color arrangements, more than you can see in a lifetime. This beautiful piece of fantasy jewelry is a wonderful family heirloom and an amazing unique gift”

The pocket watch collection is also part of a six chapter fantasy story that follows three time traveling characters as they unlock great powers with each timepiece. When you register on the Starling website, a new chapter is sent every week, beautifully illustrated in bas relief sculptures.

Take closer look at the watches (including a video) after the break…

nixon-star-wars-watch

In anticipation of the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens Nixon took advantage of the SDCC hype to announce their officially licensed line of Star Wars watches.

Nixon has designed the first two, called Ranger Imperial Pilot Black and Ranger Stormtrooper White, with subtle and sleek elements so they can be paired with any attire.

The watch face resembles body armor and features a small Imperial symbol in place of the twelve marker. The back is etched with the iconic Stormtrooper and Pilot helmets along with quotes “move along” on the white version and “crash and burn” on the black version. Every detail was considered including the watch hands which are inspired by the helmet’s ventilation system.

Just gorgeous. Take a look at the watches up close along with a teaser video after the break.

There are lots of cute Pokémon watches for kids, but these are strictly for adults. There’s a Pikachu or a Poké Ball design and they are serious Seiko timepieces designed by Beams. The watches are solar powered and water-resistant to 10 bar.

Pikachu comes in white, silver, and yellow with a “P” in the center that hides a stylized image of the character. The Poké Ball comes in black with the image surrounding the center of the face. Unfortunately, these will only available in Japan when they launch in July.

apple_2_watch

Sure, you could go out and buy the new Apple Watch, but why do that when you can build and own your very own Apple II Watch? Everyone knows that you should wait for the second generation before jumping in on an Apple product right?

Actually, this is more of a back to the future kind of thing.

The watch runs on a Teensy 3.1 processor and has a 1.8″ TFT LCD screen. It even has tiny floppy drives!

This creepy but cool perpetual motion watch is made by HYT watches out of black titanium and gold. As you can see, it doesn’t have traditional hands—just an awesome skull. Look closely at the outline and you can see the red liquid flows around the skull to indicate the hour. No, you don’t know the minutes, but maybe you can eliminate the need for them once you rule the world.
