THE BEST Watches

BRM Perfed Watches

BRM Perfed Watches

BRM is well-known for its racer/industrial aesthetics, and their Perfed Watches are no different; both feature perforated hands and details, high contrast colors and sharp arabic numbers.

KonTiki Diver Watch

KonTiki Diver Watch

The hinged watch face on Eterna’s KonTiki Diver watch isn’t just a gimmick; it allows divers to set the diving time and then lock it into the strap to avoid unintentional rotation.

Nixon 51-30 Watch

Nixon 51-30 Watch

Nixon’s stainless steel 51-30 watch is getting two new colorways; we like the swank red on black tones of Gunmetal, while All Gold/Brown suits those with a propensity for bling.

MP4 Watch & Camera

MP4 Watch & Camera

Brando’s MP4 Watch & Camera reads like a geek’s ultimate feature list: 1.8″ TFT screen, 8GB onboard memory, audio and video playback, built-in video camera and speaker.

Vestal Calcutron Watch

Vestal Calcutron Watch

The calculator watch makes a mathemagical comeback with Vestal’s Calcutron; with a chiseled stainless steel case and steel expansion band, it’ll let you geek in style.

Spring Drive Spacewalk

Spring Drive Spacewalk

Worn by Richard Garriott (of Ultima fame) during his trip to the ISS, Seiko’s Spring Drive Spacewalk watch was designed to survive the rigors of space travel, including 9gs during reentry.

Tokyoflash Waku Watch

Tokyoflash Waku Watch

Tokyoflash’s Waku watch is a step away from their metal/plastic designs, but is no less cryptic or minimalist; the leather strap extends onto the face, which hides 15 multicolored LEDs.

Concept: Tima Watch

Concept: Tima Watch

Julien Bergignat’s Tima watch concept is an excellent blend of form and function; ePaper allows it to display analog or digital time on a lengthy curved surface that hugs the wrist.

Panerai Ferrari California

Got a freshly minted Ferrari California in the garage? Panerai’s Ferrari California watch is a made for racers, with quick-reset flyback function and redline between 12 and 3.

Raymond Weil’s Nabucco Cuore Caldo is the first split-second watch with a power reserve indicator; other luxury touches include 18K pink gold, carbon fiber and sapphire crystal.

Kisai Tenmetsu Watch

Kisai Tenmetsu Watch

The folks at Tokyoflash been busy lately; hot on the heels of the NI is the Kisai Tenmetsu. Resembling a flashing traffic light, each color represents different units of time.

Horizon Watch

Horizon Watch

We’ve featured some expensive watches, but this Horizon Watch is incredulous in its simplicity: it looks great, but for $39k you’re basically paying for designer Mark Newson’s name.

EleeNoLITE Wheel Watch

EleeNoLITE Wheel Watch

Guys with a penchant for mechanicals will like EleeNoLITE’s Wheel Watch; it’s an unusual analog watch with notched cutouts that slowly fill depending on the hour and minutes.

Easy Diver SED Watch

Easy Diver SED Watch

Roger Dubuis’ Easy Diver SED watch bares it all with a gorgeous open skeleton set in a 48mm titanium case; the hand-wound movement is tied to a 60-hour flying tourbillon at 7.

Tokyoflash NI Watch

Tokyoflash NI Watch

Despite a simple name, Tokyoflash’s NI watch is obtuse enough to require labels explaining its five-line LED readout; we’re digging the polished stainless steel case, however.

Polar FT80 Watch

Polar FT80 Watch

Telling time is the least of the Polar FT80 watch’s functions: it keeps you within your target heart rate during exercise, while an optional GPS tracks distance covered and speed.

Nooka Camo Zen-H

Nooka Camo Zen-H

We think Nooka’s new line of urban-inspired Zen-H watches look best in its original jungle grey camo colorway; it sports a stainless steel case, butterfly PU band and EL backlight.

MV Agusta Brutale Watch

MV Agusta Brutale Watch

Based on a lean, mean naked bike of the same name, Jean Richard’s MV Agusta Brutale watch has a PVD black titanium case, sapphire crystal and JR1000 Caliber movement.

Botta UNO 24 Watch

Botta UNO 24 Watch

Botta’s UNO 24 watch is brutally efficient: all 24 hours are displayed, so its hour hand makes just one rev per day; a horizon line also roughly indicates the position of the sun in the sky.

Tokyoflash Kisai Denshoku

Tokyoflash Kisai Denshoku

Inspired by Japan’s neon streets, Tokyoflash’s Kisai Denshoku watch displays time in hours or minutes with 12 amber LEDs; it’s clad in an aluminum case and comes in black or silver.

With large pushers, huge 6/12 o’clock numerals and a stainless steel case, Officina Del Tempo’s Power Watch is exactly that: a watch for power players who aren’t afraid of flashy timepieces.

Sector Compass Watch

Sector Compass Watch

Sure, it’s a little gimmicky, but that’s never stopped a true-blooded geek: Sector’s Compass Torch comes with a red flashlight for sending out Morse code, as well as a survival tool kit.

Moon Dust-DNA Watch

That’s no moon: Romain Jerome is at it again with his Moon Dust-DNA series of watches, which use real moon dust as well as rocket and spacesuit parts from NASA’s Apollo 11 mission.

Panerai Ferrari Watch
