Rolex Concept Phone Coming from LG?

October 10, 2007 . by John Biggs

I doubt they’ll make it — Rolex knows not to bastardize their brand — but it is pretty interesting. You’ll have to trust me on this one, as I wasn’t allowed to take photographs inside LG’s mobile demonstration room. But one wall has a display of concept mobile phones, including a model that’s basically a…

Tag Heuer Phones: Looks Like They’re Real

January 25, 2007 . by John Biggs

WristDreams is reporting that the rumored Tag Heuer phones are real.

I really like the Nike+iPod gear – it works well and is completely mobile and usable. I just hope this odd watch from Nike meets my already high expectations. Nike has decided to go out on its own (apart from iPod) and create a watch with, well… time in mind. This sleek, dark mystery was…

Looks like the Chinese tourbillon juggernaut is slowly marching across the horizon and this one, by the Samson Watch Company – not affiliated with the Delilah Haircutting Shears Company – is no exception. Apparently this thing actually isn’t that bad and keeps good time. But when everyone owns a tourbillon, how can tourbillon makers jack…

Everyone wonders why watches on-line cost much less than watches in the store, and there are a number of very complex explanations. However, when you buy at a bricks and mortar store, you create a relationship. When you buy online you send tendrils into the ether. Which is better? Even I don’t have an answer….
