Sometimes, you might just want to pick up a crazy (but not too crazy) watch, and not have it break the bank. If that’s the case, I’ve got a watch that a friend sent me info on that I’ll direct your attention to.
This watch is called the Unique Digital Turntable, and it’s coming in at under $5. At that price, you can tell you’re picking this thing up solely for the appearance, not for any sense of high-end horology. From what I can make out, it looks like you’ve got at least three rotating discs working in concert, and you’re reading the time in the “window” over at the 3 o’clock position.
The case itself is supposed to be made of stainless steel, while the strap is made of polyurethane. From reading through the reviews on the product page, the case has some rough finishing, and the strap is something you’d likely want to replace (but isn’t that like putting $2000 wheels on a $500 car?).
The movement is some unknown quartz, powered by a button cell; the watch itself is labelled as water resistant, but I’m guessing you’re going to want to keep this thing as far away from the water as you can. On the whole, this watch just screams “stay away” to me, but I have to say, the pictures of it (from the customer shots, one of which is at the top of this post) make it look like a much nicer watch than you’d guess.
Either which way, if you want to roll the dice (with both the watch and the vendor, who I’d never heard of before), you can head on over here and put your money down.
