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.

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.

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.

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.
