If you're looking for a geeky watch then you could easily head straight over to Tokyoflash, who are known for their almost indecipherable LED displays. Alternatively, Maywadenki's Zihotch Retro Phone Watch goes more classic with its design; classic rotary phone, that is. There are no hands, no LCD or even LEDs - instead, you dial 117 to have the watch speak the time out loud to you.
Despite the fact that they're, generally, frustratingly difficult to tell the time from, I do have a soft spot for Tokyoflash watches. One of the company's more recent designs, the Oberon, has been diving in and out of stock for a while now, but they're celebrating a return to availability with the launch of a new, stainless steel variant. The S-Mode Oberon SS uses three rings of blue LEDs to indicate date and time.
Microsoft are quietly pulling the plug on their SPOT watch project, which aimed to bring real-time weather and schedule updates to the wrists of the populace. According to Microsoft's Jon Canan, the technology will no longer be built into any new watches, and the most recent examples have sold out. However, the MSN Direct service itself will continue, meaning anybody still wanting to use their SPOT watch will be able to for the foreseeable future.
Tokyo Flash, for a limited time, is adding some watches from some pretty recognizable watch brands. I assure you, if you are at all a design purist when it comes to Citizen or Seiko watches, you might not want to keep going, but if you like good watches regardless of their appearance, well; these are some pretty amazing offerings.
