    Nooka Watches Crowdfunds A Cool New Custom Chronograph

    Nooka is one of my favorite watch brands. The creator, Matthew Waldman, originally worked for Seiko and then built his own company, creating a unique line of watches that depended on dots and gauges to tell the time and date.

    I’ve been clearly failing our dedicated watch readers with my coverage of odd and sexy designs. Take the Nooka Zirc for example.
