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.
Misdial a number and you’ll hear “We are sorry, the number you have dialled is not in service. Please check and call again.” There’s also a “personal wake-up call” feature that you can set as your morning alarm, though that could get pretty tiring pretty fast to anybody sharing the bed with you.
The Zihotch Retro Phone Watch is available now in four colors: red, black, blue and yellow. It’s priced at $79.99.
