Ziiiro Eclipse Watch


Ziiiro-Eclipse-Watch-1

While the brand has always specialized in minimalistic timepieces, this thing takes things to new heights. As the name would suggest, the watch’s design was inspired by  a solar eclipse. The watch’s durable stainless steel face features an all black dial with a luminous circle equipped with two tiny hands that display both the minutes and hours. It glows in the dark, meaning you never need to fumble for  a phone in the theater trying to tell the time, and it’s high quality silicone rubber constructed strap was built to last. It also comes in your choice of either Black, Grey or Snow color ways.

CGSociety user, Cyber recently designed a ring clock, a mechanical ring made from stainless steel that displays the time. It has three rings that rotate separately, displaying the hour, minutes and seconds. An indicator ensures that you put the ring on properly, and the current time is highlighted. Not only is this little gadget functional, but it’s also quite stylish.

The Clock White by Humans Since 1982

Sweden based Humans since 1982 teamed up with Australian engineer David Cox to accomplish this mind bending clock concept. This artistic clock re-contextualizes time in a mix of old and new, analogue and digital. The clock is made of 24 two-handed analogue clocks. Six clocks make up a number, each of them displaying either one of its corners or one of its sides. All 24 clocks create one giant display similar to that of a digital watch. This work is notable for its digital/analogue format and the choreography that takes place between the minutes.

HM5 “On The Road Again” Watch


Amida-Digitrend

MB&F has unveiled a brand new timepieces with a 1970s twist – the HM5 ‘On the Road’ – which takes inspiration from the details and bodywork of cars from the era. The brand said: “Horological Machine No.5 is the epitome of the ‘70s – a time when everything seemed possible: space exploration, supersonic flight, hovercrafts, jet packs and the first supercars like the Lamborghini Miura.” The HM5 is built like the first supercars of those amazing years – complete with chassis, aerodynamic bodywork, rear flaps, exhaust ports and dashboard. Like the instrument panel on an early 70s speedster, the HM5′s display shows the hours and minutes in an mph/rpm fashion. The unmistakable wedge-shaped case of On the Road Again is direct homage to the plucky Amida Digitrend, you know that digital LED-look display. It also takes unmistakable cues from the sleek low-slung supercars of the epoch, with louvres on their near horizontal rear windows blocking sunlight and heat.

The functional louvres on HM5 do the opposite in that they open to allow light down onto the Super-LumiNova numbers on the hours and minutes indication disks to charge them. The disks are actually flat on top of the movement (under the louvres), not vertically at the front of the case where they appear to be thanks to some optical magic. Opening and closing the louvres also changes the dial’s light intensity. The louvres are opened and closed by a slide set into the side of the case. Another distinguishing feature of supercars are large dual exhaust pipes that are usually seen accompanied by a roar of engine noise and smoking rubber. But HM5’s exhausts are not there to expel combustion gases in a throaty roar, but to drain water in case – like James Bond’s Lotus in ‘The Spy Who Loved Me’ – HM5 gets wet. From a technical point of view, HM5 innovates by combining an automatic movement with an optical-grade sapphire prism, which reflects light 90 degrees and magnifies it by 20% – allowing to display bi-directional jumping hours and minutes vertically. The HM5 is released as a limited edition of 66 pieces in zirconium.
