Spli-T-ime Watch: You Could Just Wear Two Watches, No?

This concept watch might look like a dual time zone watch, thanks to the fact that it’s basically composed of two watches linked together. But it actually tells time in just one time zone – hours on the left, minutes on the right.

Ziiiro Proton & Ion Watches: No Numbers Required

I’m a fan of unusual watches, and Ziiiro has made quite a few distinctive ones lately. Their new Proton and Ion watches are no exception. While the Ion will please people who like traditional analog watches, the Proton follows what Ziiiro has tried to do with some of their other models.

Best Tech-Infused Watches to Geek Out to

Some might say that watches are devices that are dying, but for people who don’t care much for using their smartphones to tell the time, having a decent watch makes sense. These watches feature a bit of technology, to make them stand out from the crowd. While they aren’t a total geek-fest, you’ll be happy to discover what they can do.

MINUS 8 Watches: LED-Like Colors from Anodized Aluminum

MINUS 8 Watches are the brainchild of Dana Krieger of Astro Studios. The name refers to the UTC -8 time zone of the West Coast of the USA. The recently completed watches exhibit that time is relative, meaning that everyone perceives time in a slightly different manner.

Countdown Clock Keeps Track of Important Dates, or Just How Long You’ve Owned it

With all of the modern ways (apps, iPhones, and your watch) to let you know of elapsed time, it’s kind of cool to get a desk clock that does the same. Unlike other timepieces, this thing is right in your face. The Countdown Clock reminds me of the Events Countdown Clock, but in a nicer package.

Tokyoflash Right Angle Concept Watch Goes from Cryptic to Legible with a Flick of the Wrist

I’ve been a fan of Japanese watches for years, but there’s one problem with a lot of the ones offered by Tokyoflash: most of them aren’t easy to read, which makes them counter-intuitive in my opinion. That’s not the case of this new concept that Tokyoflash has posted to their blog. All you need to do to read the time is tilt it to the right angle.

Cyclops Watch by Mr Jones: One Dot Time-Telling

There’s something to be said about simple and good-looking watches: they make telling time a lot easier than those strange LED watches from Japan. Thankfully, the Cyclops from Mr Jones Watches is very easy to read, and it looks quite nice as well.

Watch brand Ziiiro has come up with two new watches use an analog mechanism to display time in a visually-striking way. This time around, we have the Aurora and the Orbit. Of the two, the Aurora looks most interesting since it mixes two colors to show the time.

Black Dice LED Guru Watches Light Up Your Wrist

The Neon LED Guru watch reminds me of some of the better Spoon watches (S.A.M. and S.A.M. 2) that Seiko released years ago, before there were many different kinds of cool Japanese watches available. But unlike Tokyoflash’s watches, you don’t need to decipher them to tell the time.

Braun Digital Watch Gets Analog Scroll Wheel

I’ve never thought as Braun as a watch company (mostly an appliance company), but apparently that’s not the case. They’re working on a new digital watch that comes with an analog twist. No, there won’t be a traditional watch face, but there will be an analog dial, a sort of analog scroll wheel, which is kind of cool.
