Gunship watch is designed to look better as it gets beat up

Watches are something that many of us gave up long ago since we have a mobile phone with a clock on it with us just about everywhere. A new line of watches has surfaced from a company called Nixon that are very cool and makes me want to wear a watch again. The line is galled the Gunship collection has has four models.

Dot Wristwatch Features LED Time Telling, More Bracelet Than Watch

Dot Wristwatch Features LED Time Telling, More Bracelet Than Watch

We're not sure when it happened, but apparently the move to make your wristwatch look more like a bracelet than, say, a watch is apparently taking off. This time around, it's the "Dot" wristwatch, utilizing LED technology to bring you the latest time without much effort at all. What makes it more bracelet than watch, too, is the fact that it's created from perforated rubber, and not some ridiculous amount of metal.

Mutewatch Features a Hidden Touch-Based Screen and Silent Alarm

Mutewatch Features a Hidden Touch-Based Screen and Silent Alarm

High-profile watches exist. We know this. But, in the case of most of them, the truth is that it takes advanced mathematics to just figure out what time it is. That's usually no fun. So, when we saw the Mutewatch, we had to take a second look, because, as you can see from the image, it doesn't look like there's much going on here. Especially no ridiculous amounts of math. So what makes the Mutewatch cool enough to be considered "high-profile?" Find out after the break.

Tokyoflash Traffic watch actually has some numbers

Tokyoflash Traffic watch actually has some numbers

Tokyoflash's latest attempt to bamboozle our wrists is out, and the Traffic does at least have numbers from which you can attempt to decipher the time.  Like Frogger meets Tron, the watch has a smoked black plastic front with neon LED lights that show hours with the "city streets", five-minute blocks with the "subway" and single minutes with the "highway out of town".

MB&F HM4 Thunderbolt watch makes ostentatious debut

MB&F HM4 Thunderbolt watch makes ostentatious debut

Remember the bizarre HM4 Thunderbolt teaser that high-end watch manufacturer MB&F showed us last month?  The company has come clean with the final, official product, and as wrist-watches go this is certainly unusual.  Three years in the making, the MB&F HM4 Thunderbolt is based around the indecently complex HM4 engine and has dual dials - one for the time, one a power indicator - which the company reckon adds up to relative simplicity.  Of course, when your casing resembles a crash between a jet engine and an Italian espresso machine (with a little H.R. Geiger in there for good measure) "simplicity" probably isn't the first description most people would reach for.

The One Binary Watch from thumbsUp! Give us the Best of Both Worlds

There are plenty of watches out there. And there's definitely quite a few watches out there that have graced this page for all sorts of reasons -- but there's always that tech angle.

That's right, if you want to actually tell the time without the hassle of figuring out your watch, then this new watch can do that. But, that's not all.

MB&F tease with HM4 Thunderbolt timepiece

MB&F tease with HM4 Thunderbolt timepiece

Unusual timepiece specialists MB&F haven't been resting on their laurels since unveiling the, ahem, busty HM3 Frog watch; instead they've been cooking up something even more bizarre.  The company's new Horological Machine No4 THUNDERBOLT is based on the distinctive HM4 engine MB&F outed at the Basel Fair back in March (which you can see after the cut), and now they're teasing the first profile shot of the new timepiece.

Tokyoflash Changing Lanes Digital Watch is Powered by USB, Still Confusing

Tokyoflash is one of those companies that we love to talk about, simply because they keep our technology world, which could become cold, bland, and stale in a matter of moments without creative companies, fresh and new. Their digital watches are pretty much legendary around here, and we're happy to bring you another one of their "crazy" inventions. Meet the Changing Lanes digital. And yes, we're still staring at it, too.

HP producing flexible watchphones for US army

HP producing flexible watchphones for US army

Watch-phones may teeter on the border between awesome and awful, but HP's latest project for the US military sounds like it might definitely fall into the former category.  The company is apparently creating a custom next-generation watch that has - inevitably - been internally nicknamed the "Dick Tracy watch", and will use a new flexible display that can show maps and other strategic information while on the battlefield.

Ever Increasing Watch available to purchase at Yanko Design

Apparently Yanko Design has found that while concept devices are cool, geeks will part with their money for watches that look like concepts that you can actually own. Lately there has been a rash of new watches on Yanko that you can purchase rather than the concepts we are used to seeing. Last week we spied the Avatar 1259B Watch that you could purchase for $159.

Tokyo Flash launches Kisai Round Trip pocket watch

Tokyo Flash launches Kisai Round Trip pocket watch

Every time I hear the name Tokyoflash I automatically think about watches that you need an instruction book to tell time on. The latest offering from the company is the Kisai Round Trip Pocket watch and its case design reminds me a bit of the Kisai Escape C Bluetooth pendant we talked about back in February.
