Porsche Design’s very first creation was a watch, therefore it only makes sense that they’d celebrate their 40th anniversary with a watch collection. The Porsche Design Watch Collection comes in a special boxset and features three iconic models from the Heritage P’6500 Series: the P’6510 Black Chronograph, the P’6520 Compass Watch, and the P’6530 Titanium Chronograph – all of which were considered breakthrough designs when they first launched. The sets are limited to 100 and will be available through Porsche Design flagship stores worldwide.
Pac-Man fever in the 1980′s resulted in over 300,000 arcade game units being sold all over the world. And now the Swiss watch maker who brought us the Space Invaders Watch wants to put Pac-Man on your wrist. The Romain Jerome PAC-MAN Watches will feature black, PVD coated 46 mm cases and will be limited to 80 pieces in 4 different designs (20 pieces each). Each design features a 3D depiction of the game play maze, but you may choose to have the ghosts in either gray or color. Two of the designs also include the iconic extra point cherries. Of course, it’ll Read More
Inspired by the yellow-banded poison dart frog, comes the limited edition HM3 Poison Dart Frog Watch. Designed by the Swiss watch maker, Maximilian Büsser & Friends, the HM3 comes with a black leather strap, a black PVD coated zirconium case with 18k yellow gold accents, and a 22k red gold automatic rotor. Two distinct hour and minute domes (sapphire crystal of course) allows the wearer to tell the time from a variety of angles without ever turning the wrist – much like the protruding eyes of the dart frog enables it to see in all directions without turning its head.

Sometimes we’re looking for a watch with a working casino game inside, and other times we just want simplicity. The Duo 24, from Germany’s Botta Design, is the world’s first one-hand watch featuring dual time zones. The main, outer display shows the local time, while the secondary, lower-level display shows an additional time zone of your choosing. There’s even an artificial horizon that divides the inner 24-hour section into a day half and a night half, making it easy to identify (with a glance) when the sun is up in the secondary time zone.
Apparently, owning a Rolex these days just isn’t enough. Unless your watch is customized, you’re a nobody. Sarcasm aside though, this piece is sure to get your peers’ attention. Bamford Watch Department – luxury watch customizers – started with the new ’Non-Date’ Submariner Rolex and gave both the case and the bracelet a blacked out PVD treatment while adding a vibrant sky blue second hand for perfect contrast. Of course you’ll need to inquire about the price… which means most of us won’t be able to afford it.

Tired of all the fancy features found on watches these days? Hey, sometimes simple is better. Clomm, a new boutique watch brand founded by Gary Fidele, is focused on creating minimalist, yet distinctive watch designs. Their first timepiece collection, Terra Firma, is named after a Latin phrase that translates as “on solid ground.” And it’s not hard to understand why, with unique dials made from either cork, rosewood, rosegold, oak, or ceramics. All of the watches have a 47mm face, PVD coated steel case, Swiss made Ronda movement, sapphire crystal lens, and an Italian leather strap.
