TikTok and LunaTik iPod nano watch kit nears $1m in funding

iPod nano watches are perhaps one of the more surprising trends of 2010, and probably near the top of the list of those overwhelmed by their popularity are TikTok and LunaTik. Since project lead Scott Wilson put the multi-touch watch kits on fund crowd-sourcing site Kickstarter, he's raised almost $1m - well in excess of the $15,000 Wilson originally hoped for.

We're used to MB&F putting together bizarre watches, but they may have just tipped over the edge with this latest design.  The MB&F JwlryMachine takes the already unusual HM3 Frog as its starting point and then dresses it up as a particularly camp looking owl.

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'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.

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.
