    This is the clock at the Ham Yard Hotel in London. It has 135 smaller clocks synchronized to create mesmerizing geometric patterns in between displaying the time in big block numbers. I could watch it all day. Paint drying and grass growing too. I'm a simple man. "You're b... / Continue →

    This is the $200 Nightmare Before Christmas themed cuckoo clock available from The Bradford Exchange. So don't go looking for it at Armani Exchange. It won't be there. $38 t-shirts? There will be a f***ing ton of those. Jack Skellington and Sally stand in front of the To... / Continue →

    This is a video from German watchmaker Nomos Glashütte of one of their modern watches being assembled. It was a treat to watch(!), mostly because I've always been fascinated with watchmaking (and collect vintage Doxas). Everything is so small. Did you know the jewels in a wa... / Continue →

    This is the Bradley, a $195 - $275 watch designed to be read by the blind, but one that's also sleek enough for anybody to want to wear. Hell, I can see 20/20 and I still want one. Hey Terry, eat shit you f***ing monster! *squinting* Wait -- is this not my Google Chat box? ... / Continue →

    This is the $9,860 KudOktopus watch from designer Stefan Kudoke. It tells time but also look like an octopus. That's a good combination. Tells time but smells like shit? That's a bad combo. Sadly, watches are just jewelry now because everybody uses their phones for the tim... / Continue →

    This is a series of limited edition Star Wars watches from Seiko. Each one is inspired by a different character in the franchise and costs around $1,800. *spitting coffee* That -- that is too much. Obviously nobody is gonna buy the C-3PO one despite the cool looking back so... / Continue →

    These are limited edition $325 Batman and Bane wristwatches from Diesel. I'm gonna be honest, for that price I kinda expected the Batman one to come with a mini-grappling hook and the Bane one to come with...I dunno, an explosives detonator or something. God, could you imagin... / Continue →

    Two professors (astrophysics and applied economics) at John Hopkins University have developed a calendar that allows every date to have a permanently synched day of the week on which it falls. Personally, I'm okay with this. Anything that makes my life simpler, I'm done for. ... / Continue →

    Got some leftover Christmas money burning a hole in your pocket? Check again. Haha, yeah I stole it when we were sitting next to each other. Also, I think I brushed your wiener. That was probably more action than you got in all of 2010 aside, this is Tokyoflash's latest des... / Continue →

    When I think "wasted" I think every good opportunity that's every come my way. Plus binge drinking. And that, in a nutshell, is how I live my life: drunk and full of regret (plus diarrhea a lot of the time). Oh God I think I only have one beer left in the fridge aside, this ... / Continue →

    Most people don't wear watches anymore because they use their cell phone to tell time, but what happens when Skynet brings down the entire telecommunication system? You're gonna be running around with your head between your legs wondering why everything smells like butthole, t... / Continue →

    This is a $135 EOS Mixtape Watch (that looks fairly similar to THIS tape watch). For those of you born yesterday, it looks like a cassette tape, which was a popular audio format from yesteryear before the advent of holographic music discs and iProds. OMG I USED TO MAKE THE BE... / Continue →

    This is Tokyoflash's latest design, the $170 Kisai 'Changing Lanes'. It looks good. What doesn't is the dent in my fender BECAUSE YOU DIDN'T USE YOUR F***ING BLINKER. Hours are displayed on the left side of the interface, starting with 1:00 at the top, traveling down to 6:00... / Continue →

    Sure I SHOULD be able to read the time even without solving the equations, but that wouldn't be giving the booze enough credit. One time I set the kitchen on fire because I couldn't figure out how long to put a 5-minute meal in the microwave (I opted for 2 hours). Joking, I p... / Continue →

    Are you fancy pants? Do you wear white gloves and a monocle? Jesus you must look ridiculous. But not if you're rocking Tokyoflash's Kisai Round Trip Pocket Watch (kidding, you still 100% will). You see, it's a pocket watch from the future. Just kidding, it's from Japan. ... / Continue →

    This is vintage ad for the classiest watch ever made. And that's saying a lot, because I've seen a handpainted one where the minute hand was a phallus. Regardless, every thirty seconds the thing blinks "it's time to f***" and is apparently "a subtle way to break the ice" and ... / Continue →
