Yesterday I talked about the cool Maze of Time concept watch that used different colors to show the time in digital numbers. The watch was cool, but it looks like a cheap hunk of junk next to the awesome N4 watch from French watch designer Francois Quentin.

Orange LG GD910 watch phone gets video call demo

You can't accuse UK carrier Orange of under-promoting the upcoming LG GD910 watch phone; the wrist-worn video phone isn't expected to hit shelves until August, but they've released a demo clip of the device in action.  Nothing groundbreaking is on show, but it's still impressive to see a two-way video call on such a small handset.

Diesel DZ9044 pushes time to the edges

Diesel DZ9044 pushes time to the edges

We're used to Tokyoflash watches being troublesome to decipher, but this Diesel DZ9044 may end up hurting your wrist, not your brain.  Rather than put the dial on the front, Diesel have slipped four tiny watch-faces onto the left and right sides of the timepiece, meaning you may have to get used to bending your wrist every time you want to know if it's almost lunchtime.
