Posted on 30 September 2009 by John Biggs

It may not do much – it’s basically a feature watch with stopwatch, alarm, and 24-hour time – but it’s nicely designed. This Casio, called the Poptone Cubic Puzzle Watch, comes in blue or black and has buttons stacked up, Tetris-style, on the bottom.

i-Toc: One very cool watch

Posted on 28 September 2009 by John Biggs

The i-Toc is really what you would call a “mystery watch.” It has two overlapping disks that are graduated from light to dark and the point of absolute black – or whatever color you’ve bought – marks the hour and minutes hand. Pretty sly, right?

Designed by CG reader Sean, the i-Toc is a mere $99 and comes in six colors including silver, blue, purple, red, and orange. It has a 41mm case and has a silicone strap with butterfly clasp. Heck, they even have a screen saver so you can add a pink i-Toc to your PC or Mac.

Erotic watches: For the man who needs very little

Posted on 25 September 2009 by John Biggs

brequet erotic 1Before the Internet, when a gentleman wanted to polish the brass knobs of his dear mum’s armoire he would depend on his internal spank bank which, potentially, included nudes he had seen in postcards and museums as well as racy lines about breasts he may have read in the Bible. However, barring a visit to the local establishment of vice, there was little way to view two people giving it the old Charles and Diana, if you catch my meaning.

Thus they had to resort to horological erotic automata. These were watch movements featuring two or more figures giving each other a good, filling Hardee’s breakfast either on command or at a set time. These things appear in all sorts of watches including clocks, pocket-watches, and even modern wristwatches.

The Dievas 2533

The Dievas 2533

The Dievas Vintage 2533; inspired by a Panerai prototype from the 1930s, the Dievas Vintage 2533 is a magnificent lump of contradictions. Big, but comfortable, sized like a status watch, Spartan in design and function while still being handsome, simple, but sublime. And the dial is perfect for eyes that aren’t what they used to be.

Swiss Military Watch blows up their 20,000 footer

Posted on 24 September 2009 by John Biggs


A company called Swiss Military Watch – I’ve never heard of them – ran their heavy duty diver through a few clever tests including a blast from a fire hose and a close, personal connection to a stick of dynamite.

The model in question, the 20,000 feet looks pretty hefty and includes a nice 7750 Valjoux movement with COSC certification. It has a large crown, heavy side cards, and is made mostly of titanium. Also it’s like $4428, not amazingly bad for a Valjoux COSC-certified chrono. Plus you can shoot it.
