Up-close with Watchismo, one of the most eclectic watch collectors I know

Posted on 28 October 2009 by John Biggs

While I’m not quite down with a lot of Watchismo’s aesthetic choices, you gotta respect his drive. This guy loves Swiss quartz, crazy designs, and even goes nuts over Hamilton Electrics, watches that are so odd that only one person in the world can fix them.

Pour yourself a drink and feast your eyes on the Kobold Arctic Diver

Posted on 28 October 2009 by John Biggs

Man. I don’t know if I’m supposed to look at this watch or have sex with it. The man’s hands fondling this PVD encased beauty is a bit off-putting but the music sounds like what my roommate used to play to mask the sounds of his seductions.

In Mother Russia, wristwatch wears YOU!

Posted on 28 October 2009 by John Biggs

1_034What Russian economy collapse? Apparently, despite the fact the people in Russia are starving and with out heat during the winters, government officials still find the funds to buy the little things that make life easier.

Casio announces new blinged out Baby-G

One of the oldest images of a mechanical watch found in Florence

Posted on 19 October 2009 by John Biggs

This charming portrait of Cosimo I de Medici, Duke of Florence, shows a man about town holding his nice new fancy gold watch. Amazingly, however, this portrait was painted in 1574 which means German or northern watchmakers were plying their wares as far as Italy during this period.

The portrait shows the Duke holding up his single-handed watch – it is more like an alarm clock than a watch – in a pose that would signify his power and wealth.

Nooka Zaz

Posted on 14 October 2009 by John Biggs

Matt Waldman at Nooka has done it again. The Zaz is a see-through watch with an LCD sandwiched onto a transparent surface. You tell time by counting the blocks and reading the growing minutes bar and it comes with a black, silver, or white band.

At $380 it’s a bit pricier than some Nooka models but it’s still badass. Watchismo just started to sell them or you can check them out at Nooka.com. It seems they’re on pre-order right now.
