4th Dimension Watch

A timepiece like few others, 22 Design’s 4th Dimension Watch is a wrist-borne take on their unique 4th Dimension Clock. The watch takes inspiration from a spiral staircase by casting 12 steps — each representing one hour — out of concrete, with the break placed at the 12 o’clock mark. Though it’s not for small wrists: it measures in at a bold 42mm in diameter and is naturally tall due to its design. Get it in three colors including Midnight (not shown), Urban (left) and Original (right), each built with a sapphire crystal lens capping its stainless steel case, powered by a Citizen Miyota GL36 Quartz movement, and affixed to a Italian naturally tanned leather strap.

Pebble Time Round Smartwatch

The worst part about a smartwatch is that it looks like a smartwatch. But not the Pebble Time Round Smartwatch, or at least not that much. While still equipped with a color e-ink display, the Pebble Time Round is the thinnest, lightest, and most normal looking smartwatch yet. It’s available in a variety of face colors and paired with different straps and otherwise boasts the exact same hardware specs and features as the Pebble Time, albeit with one catch: a smaller battery that lasts two days instead of ten. But for a smartwatch this thin, the tradeoff may just be worth the cost.

feature post image for Devon Star Wars Watch

Devon Star Wars Watch

TIE fighters look nothing like our current jets, presumably because of technological advancements and the fact that they dogfight primarily in space. Likewise, the Devon Star Wars Watch doesn’t look much like your average timepiece, instead driven by a hybrid electro-mechanical movement that spins glass-reinforced nylon belts to tell the time, not unlike the gauges used in the original Boeing 747. The design is also heavily Dark Side-focused, drawing inspiration from Darth Vader’s helmet, his gloves (in the form of a ribbed leather strap), and the TIE Fighter’s wings. Not to mention the fact that it’s adorned with a Galactic Empire logo on the crown. Each also comes with a limited edition pair of handsome TIE Fighter cufflinks to complete the theme.

Limited to a run of 500. Learn more at Devon Works – $28,500

This limited edition B25 features a Miyota OS20J movement with chronograph and protects it well thanks to a stainless steel case with a bead blasted titanium carbide PVD hard coating, anti-reflective sapphire crystal, and a precision screw down crown with double diamond sealing system that enables water resistance to 200 meters. Also included are two nylon NATO straps — one black and one green — as well as free batteries for life.

Klokers KLOK-01

Curiously busy and yet surprisingly easy to read, Klokers’ KLOK-01 timepiece uses three concentric disks to tell the time, covering hours, minutes, and seconds as they slowly rotate counter-clockwise. The time itself is displayed vertically along the top-centered magnifying glass which also enlarges the watch’s clean type. A Swiss-made quartz Ronda movement powers the 44mm watch which is enclosed in a stainless steel case and attached to a leather strap that isn’t affixed using lugs but rather a quick release system, permitting rapid swapping.

Find it at Kickstarter – $200+

Matthew Hilton MH01 Watch

Minimal to a point, Matthew Hilton’s MH01 Watch is the furniture designer’s first foray into wearables. The watch bears a particularly clean design thanks to its milled 316 marine grade stainless steel body that also smoothly and seamlessly doubles as the timepiece’s face. Otherwise it runs on a Swiss quartz movement, features mineral crystal glass, and allows its hand stitched, full grain vegetable tanned leather strap (in either tan, brown, or black) to pass through the base of its body. So far limited to a run of 50, each with the serial number milled onto its side.

Find it at Haus or at Matthew Hilton – roughly $1380 [via]

Samsung Gear S2 Smartwatch

We could talk about the Samsung Gear S2 Smartwatch by mentioning its 1.2-inch circular sAMOLED display or its sleek stainless steel body, the latter particularly pronounced on the Gear S2 (shown, right) over the Gear S2 Classic. Or even its Tizen OS and ecosystem. More interesting, however, is the availability of a 3G network-connected variant which relies on an e-SIM card — or embedded SIM card — that lets the device work standalone on your mobile network to make phone calls, send messages, and access connected apps without being chained to a smartphone.

Catalyst Waterproof Case for Apple Watch

Your Apple Watch is meant to always stay on your wrist. Unfortunately, it’s not entirely waterproof, nor guaranteed to survive a dip in the pool — or worse, the ocean — so it’s often got to come off. For this, Catalyst’s Case for Apple Watch boasts a slim profile and grants your IP-68 waterproofing to sustain continuous immersion at up to 3 meters deep. It simultaneously ruggedizes your watch to MIL-SPEC 810G for drops, exposes both the face and the heart rate sensors for unimpeded functionality, and features a colorful rotating crown dial cover for tactility. It’ll even protect your device from the corrosive salt water of the oceans.

Preorder at Catalyst – $60
