  • Home Theater Watch: Where a 1.5-inch Screen Means "Theater"

    The Home Theater Watch holds a whopping 2GB of memory, which you can fill with MP3s, WMAs and proprietary video files. That’s right, don’t go thinking you can just load up any ol’ Xvid on here. No, sir. Included software converts video files (granted, from the most popular formats like AVI, MPEG and WMV) into the format used by the watch. No word on if this magical software… Read More

  • Kronoforms Robot Watch

    Wow! I had one of these when I was a kid! Amazing! And check out the battle station! via Watchismo Read More

  • Review of the Bathys 100 Fathoms Automatic Watch

    Just finished a quick review of the Bathys 100 Fathoms Automatic Watch at my watch porn site, WristWatchReview. This watch is made in Swizterland but was designed by John Patterson, surfer who hangs ten in Hawaii and wanted something that could survive the deepest depths and shark attacks. At $775, it’s fairly pricey but it’s quite handsome and comes with two removable straps… Read More

  • Jack Bauer Gear at Uncrate

    Uncrate has tenaciously gone through the catalog of all the gear Jack Bauer regularly uses on “24.” It’s a show I’ve tried several times unsuccessfully to get into. Oh well. Foremost (read: most expensive) among these gadgets is a fancy pants Special Ops Watch. Its rugged design makes it ideal for any counter-terrorism operations. The watch features LED lighting, a… Read More

  • Review of the Scorpion Watch Company Reef Diver

    Some nice lazy Saturday reading. I posted a review of the SWC Reef Diver, a beefy automatic $799 diver’s watch, over at WristWatchReview. I’m a big watch-head but I really liked it and loved the homebrew feel of the entire tiny company. Give it a read. That’s why I was so excited to see Scorpion Watch Company, really a pair of guys out in Denver, were creating a watch brand. Read More

  • Scorpion Watch Reef Diver Photo Gallery

    I got the Reef Diver in, which I talked about a bit before, and I took a few photos to test CG’s PopUpGallery installation. Feast your eyes. Product Page
    UPDATE – Let me know if this gallery works on your browser in comments. It’s acting strange on OSX and Firefox. Read More

  • DIY Pong Watch

    Sure it’s nearly the size of a Gameboy, but this homemade Pong watch is pretty pimp. It appears to just play with itself endlessly, but I imagine it could be somewhat entrancing when you should probably be doing more important things. It uses a 10mm case with a 96×64 OLED dsplay. Oh and battery life is just 25 hours so it might not be hospitable for late nights. Homemade Pong watch! Read More

  • Tag Heuer Phone (??)

    , makers of fancy watches, is releasing a cellphone designed by ModeLabs, a French company that designs phones companies MTV and Virgin Mobile. The phone will be made of stainless steel and take design cues from the other watches in the Tag line-up. This appears to be a direct shot at Nokia’s Vertu line, which means someone at LVMH, Heuer’s parent company, must have woken up from… Read More

  • Scorpion Watch Company Reef Diver

    Just got in the new Scoripion Reef Diver for review. This is a custom-made automatic watch created by a couple of guys in Denver and it’s quite a looker. It has an automatic ETA movement with hacking seconds hand — that means the seconds hand stops when you pull out the crown — and is water resistant to 30ATM or 1000 feet. They’ve only made 100 of the red Reef Divers… Read More

  • JLr7: For People l33t3r Than You


    Hey I love intriguing and original design, but on the other hand, I’m nothing if not practical. And as a tech critic, it’s my job to question the validity of products. So when I saw this JLr7 watch I knew that it falls neatly into the realm of products I’d question heavily. Designed by Eri & Eiichi, the JLr7 features a bunch of L-shaped segments that somehow tell… Read More

  • 2006 Holiday Buyer's Guide: Geek Watches

    . Therefore, I thought it fitting that I cover ten nice timepieces that you can pick up for the horolgy geek in your life. A few caveats, however. I’m a traditional watch geek, one who slobbers over mechanical watches in the $500-$100,000 range, so if we sat down to discuss this over a beer I’d tell you to buy a nice mechanical automatic watch instead of a quartz one. However… Read More

  • TokyoFlash Presents Retsu

    Retsu, a watch by Saishin, is one of the smallest LED watches we’ve seen, and it’s available exclusively from TokyoFlash. Retsu is only 1.4 ounces, which is a lot lighter than most of the watches available on TokyoFlash. Telling the time isn’t as confusing as most of the watches found there, either: Amazingly simple to read, the lights race up to the digit then trail off… Read More

  • Suunto t3: It's Got it All

    We like Suunto – they make a nice watch with lots of features and have a cetain style that makes their watches look less like wrist computers than dinner plates with numbers. The t3 includes a heart-rate monitor, pedometer, as well as real-time calories burned read-out. It’s about $169.99 with a black face and $149.99 for a standard LCD face. Pedometer and heartrate pods sold… Read More

  • Bathys Automatic Watches


    I’m a watch freak so I decided to share this with you all. This is a Bathys Automatic, designed by John Patterson in Kaua’i. This guy is a surfer and wanted to make a watch that could withstand a heavy pounding on some of the island’s amazing beaches. He designed his first watch last year, sold out all of his quartz models, and went to Switzerland to have automatics made. Read More

  • Dreamcast Watch

    I have thus far let my perverse love of timepieces go unquenched on these pages, but no longer. Here is a fancy Dreamcast Watch that opens up just like the original Dreamcast to reveal the time. Practical? No. Geek-tastic? Yes. It’s available now for pre-order for $129 and will ship September 29. If it was every your goal to have a portable Dreamcast, this is probably about the… Read More

  • Brando Remote Control Watch

    If you’re in need of a remote control and have $18 to blow, you might want to consider this touchscreen remote control watch from Brando. The device features a programmable touchscreen face that will allow you to control home theater peripherals directly from your wrist. Maybe not the most useful component, but not the most useless either. I used to have a watch similar to this in… Read More
