Wow. These look nice. Full color screen? Pinch me!

UPDATE – Feh! You can’t play the games! How stupid.

Check them out here.

Lie Detector Watch

Priced at $16, you really can’t go wrong with this lie-detecting watch. Handsome, Nintendo-esque coloring and the a difficult UI makes this watch, sold by Smartphone, a winner.

Review – Apogaum Militaire GMT

19

Looking at the Apogaum is kind of like watching the Japanese do comedy – the cues are alien, the laughs are strange and manic, and the effort seems over the top but fascinating. No slight against the Japanese – their shows kick ass – but to see a Swiss via Hong Kong Panerai knock-off with a GMT hand and enough odd design cues is enough to spin your aesthetics like a top and is definitely disorienting.

The Poor Man’s GMT Round-up

1

A bottle of wine, eBay, and a desire for a GMT lead me to order three separate, inexpensive GMT watches. My fool-hardy adventures in bidding are your gain, friends, as I begin the GMT round-up, starting with a beefy Panerai-alike that many of us have eyed on the ‘Bay but never risked buying. We’ll be posting reviews of these watches over the next week, so keep your eyes peeled.

#1 – Review – Apogaum Militaire GMT – Score: 2.5/5
#2 – Review – Vostok 24 Hour Aviator – Score : 3/5
#3 – Review – Aeromatic 1912 GMT – Score: 2/5

WISzone – New Watch Site

I’m not going to comment on the design, but it appears to be chock full of information on everything from ummm… I don’t know? Some sort of store? To forums?

Question: Did Speedy’s ever have display backs?

iBeam Watch

This thing is kind of dopey: magnifying glass + LED makes for a geeky, kind of useless watch. But I suppose this is for older folks or whatever. Anyway, thought I’d share this piece that came via WristFashion.

Pope Bling Bling

1

WristFashion, which I’m glad to see is coming back with a vengeance, posted this discussion of the Pope’s bling.

Observers are saying that there are signs that the new Pope, Joseph Ratzinger may be more progressive than his record would suggest. These signs or indications or what have you, aren???t based on insider information but on what designer accessory the Pope is sporting:

– Pricey Serengeti sunglasses (the brand Val Kilmer wears)
– Pope???s reading glasses are Cartier???s Santos
– A stylish retro wristwatch with black hands, dial and straps (No word on what brand but our little elves are working on it)
– and a pair Black and gold cufflinks.
