    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

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

    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

    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
