Watches….do people even wear them anymore?  Have you ever thought maybe there is more to the watch than just a pretty face and a short stem?  Here are some really strange watches that might just be the next biggest trend…

 

 Iron Samurai watch

Iron Samurai watch

The Iron Samurai watch, a spectacularly ugly bracelet-style watch made from “Samurai sword carbonized steel folded 1000x over,” is available from Chinavision for a questionable $15. The watch hides red LEDs inside the pattern of the bracelet, which is kind of cool in theory but dorktacular in practice.  The Iron Samurai has been known to increase its wearers’ strength, dexterity, constitution, intelligence, wisdom, and charisma by as much as 20 points each! Chuck Norris and Steven Seagal are said to be Iron Samurai owners, as is David Bowie and Brian Eno.

Tread 1

Tread 1

A company called Devon has just announced their debut model wrist-watch called the Tread 1. It’s not so much weird as it is uber cool. Standing true to its name, the Tread 1 uses a treadmill-like system with belts that are woven together and have separate motors. The time is highlighted as the numbers feature inside a cut out shape while they’re rotating on the mini treadmill. The watch is made from bulletproof polycarbonate which means it’d be perfect if you were a spy or someone who gets shot at a lot. And if you’re getting shot at you’re probably very important and if you’re very important you probably have a lot of money ergo this watch won’t be very expensive for you as it’s priced at $15,000.

Space Invaders Watch

Space Invaders Watch

Two versions of the watch are being made, one for day (the full color one), and one for night (with glowing ‘Superluminova’ invaders). At as little as $10k a piece, why not buy both? Each Space Invaders watch is being made in a very limited run of just 78 pieces. Even so, if you do the math on that, once they sell out, Romain Jerome and TAITO stand to pocket a tidy sum $1,560,000. Not a bad days work for the Space Invaders, eh?

 

EleeNo EG3

EleeNo EG3

Japanese company Tokyoflash claims a reputation for weird watch designs, and their latest design the EleeNo EG3. This crazy time teller has a face that represents the time through a series of squares: the top 3 indicate the hour, the middle three show how many minutes past the hour in tens, and the final three represent the single minutes. At ¥9,800 ($80/£41), the EG3 isn’t on the high end of the watch hierarchy either. Just think of all the awkward conversations you can have with members of the public that have innocently inquired about the time!

 

 

Map Watch

Map Watch

The Vacheron Constantin engineers and watchmakers added to an extremely reliable self-winding movement, Vacheron Constantin Calibre 1126AT, a complication necessary to make the time move in the cartographical wake of the famous adventurers. The highly sophisticated and patented mechanism drives both dial parts with help of a number of complicated devices linked by cams featuring the shape inspired by the Vacheron Constantin signature Maltese cross.

The hour wheel has three arms extended by a satellite, each carrying four hour numerals, pointed in the direction set by a cam. The hour crown turns so that to line up the satellite with the necessary hour number in front of the gap found between the two dial parts. The cam then moves the necessary number into the gap and the hour crown makes it move from left to right in precisely one hour over the minute scale featured on the lower dial.

 

 

WeWood-Jupiter-Watch

Bingo Watch

Bingo Watch

It seems that nobody wants to adorn their wrists with simple looking watches anymore. The market is flooded with all sorts of weird looking watches out of which these LED watches have become a real craze with tech-savvy people. This new uniquely styled watch called Bingo from Eleeno is available at Japanese online store Tokyoflash. Although the watch would generate great interest in Bingo players but otherwise also it’s quite catchy. Telling time is deceptively simple (doesn’t look like it though). The outer dot is for hours and the inner one is for minutes.

 

 

Relativity Watch

Relativity Watch

Modeled on Einstein’s theory of relativity, this Relativity Watch actually makes the numbers move instead of the hands. This, of course, makes you dizzy if you continuously stare at it for more than 12 hours.
