I hate white watches.


They’re just not for me.  I think they can be quite beautiful or striking, but not on my wrist. I keep buying them, though. I love my white Fossil Stella. I’ve always had my eye on a white Cartier tank. And for some reason, I find one of the most visually intriguing to be the Nixon Motif. I can’t keep it free of fingerprints – it’s got the biggest crystal i’ve ever seen and I have to touch it. I love they way they put a hint of texture into the large white monolith with few fine lines. It reminds me of that book I read when I was little called Superfudge.  In the book, a painter’s wife got mad and knocked red paint over his painting in progress. He salvaged it and called the piece Anita’s Anger. In my head, this watch is what that painting looked like, minus the red.

They come in other colors and are available from Amazon.

We’re ready for the next Revolution: Thank you Nicolas Hayek


The world is filled with people who have great ideas. Since I’m in R&D, I hear more of them than the average person. Don’t be surprised when I tell you that the ideas that actually go somewhere have little to do with the idea itself. It’s all about the man behind the curtain bringing the idea to life. C’mon. Do you really think the Slap Chop is a novel idea?! Why is that in every K-Mart but no one has seen your fuel cell-powered watch? This is not a post to remember or mourn Mr. Hayek. We all know what he did and how he changed the desire and affordability of wristwatches for the lot of us. Let’s use his story as an example and then make him proud. My earliest Swatch is the Carlton Pinstripe. Take out your first Swatch. Remember the day you bought it and the anticipation leading up to it. Put it on your wrist. (It’s okay, no one believes it’s still mint.)  Next, think of a few Swatch ideas that struck you in the slice of time between then and now. For me this would be Swatch Musical, Swatch Internet Time and the Swatch Snowpass. Our job is to figure out what’s next in this sequence.  Not for Swatch- for the whole wristwatch industry. So do it! Be logical. Be creative. Be absurd. Be  a 17-year-old taking the SAT. I’m not talking about a jump from tourbillon to gyrotourbillon. I’m taking about a giant leap like mechanical to digital. I know you’ve already thought of something so make it happen. Fake some bravery and post a comment with your idea.

My favorite Swatch book. It’s old but still good. Swatch: A Guide for Connoisseurs and Collectors

Lie Detector Watch


DSC03850 This watch was really expensive.

This is my favorite watch.

I never wear a watch.  

These are all lies.  You would know that if you had the Spy Truth Detector Watch by Wild Planet. This watch has a motley collection of functions. First, it has a light for viewing in the dark. Not your up-to-date back lit LCD, but an old-style bulb on the side that only lights up about half the display. Think Clockwork Orange. Next, it has a timezone indicator as part of the main display, with a D for DST. It wouldn’t be complete without an alarm or 24 hr time display. The feature functions include a Secret Decoder mode for storing up to three alphanumeric codes, and the Lie Detect mode.  In Lie Detect mode, your subject places two fingers on the two metal bars at the top. Resistivity sensing (that’s a guess) determines whether your subject is lying or not by displaying a bar graph representing True or False.  Wouldn’t it be great if you could use this any time you bought a watch online?  Then you might have a Breitling instead of that Bratling.

You can find this watch in toy stores or Amazon.
