Nike Nate Grenade Watch

Posted on 28 September 2006 by John Biggs

nike-nate-watch.jpgCare for a watch that looks like a grenade? Not even an unexploded grenade? Sure you would. Check out this Nike Nate watch that’s stainless steel and urethane, with one-touch backlight and even an alarm. It’s not too pricey at $130, and you can always scare little kids by telling them it’s a real grenade. Which is always fun until your wife elbows you in the ribs and tells you to stop it.

Pop Kobold

koboldpop_sml.jpgNow this is a weird duck. It’s a one-of-a-kind piece by Kobold that just sold for a 911 charity. Looks pretty beefy even though it could hang out on a harijuku girl’s wrist without looking out of place. Burton Morris designed the face.

MB&F Horological Machine No.1

Posted on 18 September 2006 by John Biggs

watch5.jpg
Hokey shmokes. What is this thing? It’s a dual read-out watch with some sort of massive power plant, shown here. Very clever and potentially very expensive. Note: this is not a dual watch – the other side is this photo trick they like to do where they put a mirror to the back of the watch so you can see the rear glass.

On the dial side the HM1 looks like the command center of a rocket ship. The dial on the right provides a reading for minutes with a massive speedometer needle-like hand. An indication for the watch’s massive four barreled fuel tank is also mounted on this same axis. On the left dial you have a reading for hours. Both dials feature transverse mounted floating sapphire subdials to provide time indication on the left, and on which the power reserve indication is engraved on the right. The hour and minute hands have to communicate with each other across the massive divide between them. This was accomplished with an oversized, ultra-flat, mirror-polished wheel centrally located under the dial. Too thin to support from its axis, this wheel cleverly floats between two layers of precision-adjusted jewels. Because of the artisan minutia involved, only 100 watches will be made in the next three years. Indeed the Horological Machine No.1 is the horological equivalent of a super car. It is a mixture of technical mastery, truly refined traditional finish, and groundbreaking new aesthetics that heralds the arrival of one of the new masters of form and function — a new world collective known as MB&F, spearheaded by one of the watch industry’s most exciting young leaders, a man named Max Büsser.

NeoLog and Lexon – We Be Scammin’

Posted on 08 September 2006 by John Biggs

Looks like Nooka has got some lawsuit worthy IP-theft going on. NeoLog and Lexon are selling watches – probably from the same Chinese factory – that look just about like the ZEN-V if you squint. Anyone tried these things yet?
