Yay or Nay: D&G’s test-card pattern Medicine Man Watch

I’m featuring this more as a curio than anything, but maybe I have some subconscious desire to wear a test pattern on my wrist, perhaps as a results of all of of those years of just going to bed just as TV was shutting down. You young ‘uns don’t know you’re born, what with your 24 hour TV, interweb and …

Jaegar Lecoultre watch makes you feel like James Bond

While it doesn’t have a laser for searing off padlocks or an inbuilt magnet that’ll help you snatch your Walther PPK from those hard to reach places, this James Bond-esque limited edition Jaeger LeCoultre wristwatch will unlock and start the engine on your new Aston Martin DBS 510bhp. Despite the fact that this is about as far as the technology …

Abacus watches can’t tell time, but look cool

In a prime example of style over substance, Abacus watches (from £70) are timepieces without those bothersome hands that mar an otherwise perfectly good face. Instead, each one has a ball bearing that rolls about inside the casing until you stop flailing about, which then, thanks to the power of magnetism, stops at the correct time. Or a part of …

CECT W100 wrist phone

Just like the concepts of flying cars zooming through the sky or hand-held lasers that can stun a perp at 100 paces, the idea of a wrist mounted communication device has been just that – an idea. The reality is that "flying" cars can barely get off the ground, "hand-held" lasers need to be coasted around on trolleys and wrist-phones …

Roamine Gerome Titanic DNA watch made from the actual doomed ship

Isn’t this just grave robbing? The Titanic DNA watch from Roamine Gerome uses actual pieces salvaged from the sunken ship to make up its casing, which itself resembles a port-hole. You can choose from several different materials, including a brass finish (above left) and the more authentic looks rusted steel (top right). All the watch faces are made from compressed …

Amazing vintage digital watches for sale!

Looking at this watch shows how fun and innovative digital watches were back in the 80s. This particular one (the 1981 Alba Y666 Soccer LCD Game Watch) features a brilliant football game (soccer to US readers) which is, essentially, every boys dream. Of course, games on our mobiles and PSPs have usurped all these things from the 80s, but the …

Nixon The Dictator watch

Not really sure what to make of this one. It looks like a tiny, wrist-mounted guitar amplifier, but it’s also reminiscent of the watch/communicator thingie that Dick Tracey uses which, with its voice recorder – hence The Dictator – is possibly a better analogy. Record one side of a conversation then play it back when your friends are about so …

Ted Baker has always managed to turn out fresh and innovative design whilst maintaining a traditional edge, and the Daoside Watch (£95) is no different. Sleek and simple, the Daoside combines a contemporary watch face with a classic, stainless steel case and a black or brown leather strap.
