    This is a video highlighting the construction of a $2.5-million Patek Philippe 5175R Grandmaster Chime watch. It is one of the most complicated wristwatches made and actually has a physical chime inside. It also has two faces (like my buddy Terry, what a jerk!), and can be ro... / Continue →

    This is a shot of the Casio F-91W watch that was lost by its owner two decades ago and found to still be working after all that time. It looks like it did not live an easy life. That watch has probably seen things. Unspeakable horrors. Still, they sure don't make them like ... / Continue →

    This is a video showing the actors of the Star Wars original trilogy then versus now. SURPRISE: Everybody got older. Except C-3PO and R2-D2, they actually look like they got younger. Do droids age backwards or did somebody just run them through an automated car wash? If I w... / Continue →

    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 a Knights of the Round Table themed timepiece designed by luxury watchmaker Roger Dubuis. As you can see, it features all the knights gathered around the table with their swords drawn ready to yell 'ONE, TWO, THREE -- FAIR MAIDEN TITS!' or whatever the hell their team ... / 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 →
