    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 $40 Vaporite Grindrite watch. At first glance it just looks like an ultra high quality Quantum wristwatch. But at SECOND GLANCE, and provided somebody has removed the watch face, it's actually a weed grinder or mini storage space. Not both though, you have to spe... / 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 →

    Mike Libby is a Maine-based artist who glues old watch parts on dead bugs to create steampunk looking insects. Which actually seem pretty cool until you realize that this is what robots will really look like in a few years. True story: one time I let a beetle crawl into my ea... / Continue →

    In a departure from their typically cryptic watches, Tokyoflash has just dropped a line of easier to read analog models from Nekura. That's three of the them there, but there are five in total, so hit the jump for high-res pictures of all of them. Each sells for $85, has an e... / Continue →

    Admittedly we've seen some really freaking ridiculous and expensive watches here in the past, but the Day&Night watch from Romain Jerome takes the cake for the least bang for your buck. It has a Tourbillon movement that only tells you if it's day or night. All this for $300,0... / Continue →
