Bright Lights and TRON Time

Bright Lights and TRON Time

How do you read time… if you’re INSIDE a computer?! This is a question we’ll all have to ask when we’re at that new TRON movie whenever it decides it’s ready to come out. I’m anticipating the pants off it, and so is designer Scott Galloway, who today presents to the world this TRON-inspired watch called the “Seven-R-Zero-N” aka 7R0N. This watch is rare in that it lends attention to not only the face, but to the strap as well.

Watch to Time, Turbines to Speed!

Watch to Time, Turbines to Speed!

Behold, the ancient power of windmills! It’s no mistake that windmills have been so prevalent in horror movies over the course of our recent past – the very thought of such a majestic beast being blown to bits gives me the shivers! Projects design group reminds us that windmills are amongst humankind’s oldest energy sources, turning water and wind into pure power! Thusly, they’ve made an object to remind us of that excellent trade here, in the Turbino watch.

Stop Time

At your command now, here, is time itself! Or rather, the outward appearance of time as it sits on your wrist. Designer José Hurtado presents a watch that sits on your wrist and has arms and a ticker like any other wristwatch, but it only shows you the time when you want it. All you’ve got to do is click it! I know many of you, including me, suffers from time deprivation. No more of that! Only if you want it. Here is the Hide Watch!

Perfect Balance in Time

Perfect Balance in Time

When you’re looking at your watch on your wrist, you want to know what time it is. But more than that, you want your whole life to be in order in that one moment. You want all the yin and all the yang to be perfectly spun. That’s why it’s imperative that you see that the first moment you peek at the machine on the strap on the piece of your body below your hand. This is the “Yin Yang” watch designed by the fabulous Daniel Will – Harris, known for his crazy, amazing, and fantastic watch collection, several of which are jumping off the shelves of our Yanko Store. Slap one directly unto your wrist.

Crystal Wrist

Crystal Wrist

Let me continue our legacy here on Yanko of presenting completely amazing, strange, and weird, with this “Retro-Futurism” timepiece from designer Carson Leong. It’s a digital timepiece that “celebrates the magical properties of fused fibre optics.” I couldn’t have said it more wonderful myself. The watch has its top glass (Sapphire crystal) replaced by fused fibre optic with 12 facets, each of the 12 representing one hour of the day. When turned off, the watch becomes a unique fashion accessory with a black gem (the optic) at the helm.

One Watch With Many Faces

One Watch With Many Faces

Here is a neat idea that allows you to play with the different faces for a watch. The Watch oNe basically features an E-Ink display which is LED back lit, but its face is not constant, meaning you can change it at whim or fancy. Hook the watch up to the internet and download your kinda face to it. Designers have a choice to upload their creativity to the on-line store, for others to purchase. So the possibilities with this one watch are endless… mechanical, digital, classic, futuristic, complex…any type of face can be downloaded (via micro USB port) for use.

Seconds Moving Hours

Seconds Moving Hours

On our never-ending travels from the birth to the grave, there’s lots of minutes, hours, waiting for years to pass, all the loveliness and ickiness of the world traveling about us. But then there’s the seconds. The tiny ants carrying the picnic of our lives unto the future. Daniel Will-Harris knows this, and seeks to show us every day time moving forward being pushed by seconds. The numbers move, the moment stays the same. This is the “Rush Hour” watch, a highly modern sort of watch.

A Random Time

A Random Time

A watch that you place upon your wrist for the purpose of telling the time, but not for time’s sake, for the sake of keeping wonder and playfulness alive. This watch is called “Time Lines” and its apparent improper and random placement of lines in the design create “a dialogue with the clock face,” keeping for itself a unique identity while it tells you when it’s time to go check Yanko for updates.

Seeing Time Differently

Seeing Time Differently

Inside this post you will see five watches. Of these five watches, there are four designs, one with two colorways: black and white. These watches are made by designer Denis Guidone, who says, “I don’t like to design watches, what I really like is to design time” That’s a pretty bold thing to say, yes? But Guidone’s got some pretty fabulous watches here. Let’s take a look.

Watch Is All Buttons

Watch Is All Buttons

When designing this timepiece collection for odm, Michael Young altered the conventional mindset of how a watch looks and the result is this gorgeous collection. The position of time panel and buttons are ingeniously reversed for a fresh way to read time, giving its eponymous name  – Reverse.

Color Time Keeping Identification

Color Time Keeping Identification

How would you like to keep time with not hands, not digits, but with colors? How about we keep the numbers, and instead of pointing to them, we light them up? How about that?! Designer Daniel Will-Harris has just the watch you’ve been searching for all your life, you lovers of blue and red and silver tones, yes! This is the “Iridium Watch” and you’re about to identify lunchtime with the power of color tone. And what’s this? We’ve got it in the store? How handy!

World's Largest Wristbound Curve

World’s Largest Wristbound Curve

When you’ve got a watch on your wrist, you’re constantly saying something about yourself. That’s changed since the beginning of watches. When wrist watches were first invented, you definitely said something about your identity when you wore one. Then there was a long period when everyone had one – it was standard to have one. Now, in this age of pocket-sitting clocks on mobile phones, again the age of wrist clock fashion is born. Curve ID knows this.

What Do FIFA Referees Lack? Third Eye

What Do FIFA Referees Lack? Third Eye

It only takes a stinky fish to dirty the entire pond, and this year FIFA has 2 fishes tainting their image. To rub salt over our wounds Sepp Blatter apologizes but still says FIFA has reservations over incorporating technology into the sport. I have only two words for him: England and Mexico! Even a money-spinning sport like cricket has adopted the third umpire into the game, because we are only HUMANS! FIFA too needs a “Referee Third Eye”.
