WE WOOD: Timepiece Collection

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

You might remember our first post about WE WOOD, but since then the brand has grown so much and mastered their craft even more.  The watches above are a part of their latest collection.  As you know, the majority of the watches are made from 100% natural wood, including the case, band and face.  The two watches are the Chrono and the Date watch, which are my two current favorites from WE WOOD.

These should be available now at all WE WOOD suppliers as well as their website.  Check it out asap!

Nixon: The 51-30 Chrono Tortoise

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Nixon’s latest release does not disappoint.  Nor do they ever.

This is the latest watch to drop from the Nixon Fall 2011 collection.  It is a new, revamped version of their classic 51-30 watch.  The new watch features tortoise materials, Matte black exterior and gloss black numbering on the dials.

The tortoise and black combo gives it great contrast and makes the watch look very sleek.  All Nixon carriers will have this and all other releases later this Fall.

The Emotion Lab: Moon Watch

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

One of the most intriguing things I have EVER seen…

The moon has been a guide and object of admiration and mysticism during thousands of years. Agriculture, fertility, tidal patterns, human behaviour and many other activities have been linked to the different moon phases.

Moonwatch has been designed to establish a relationship between the moon cycle and a person’s emotional states. It’s a new concept of time based on nature which invites people to reflect upon and gain a closer understanding of their mood and daily life on earth.

Those are the words of the creators of this fascinating piece.  The Emotion Lab is a company with 4 designers coming 3 different countries that came together to do more than just create a product for the market.  They use a very innovative approach to every one of their projects and the final product is always an unforgettable, unique work of art.  There is no boundaries that they design within, which is something that I respect and admire.  Bottom line, they make dope stuff.

 

I’m actually kind of still uncertain of all the details of this watch, but I love it.  Right now, this is the conceptual design of the watch.  As more details come, I will update you on them but until then… just sit back and wait for this thing to come out!  I guarantee I will own one withing the week of its release.

Supreme: The Alton Sunglasses

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Supreme gives us a dose of dopeness right as Summer begins!

These shades are handcrafted in Italy, which is always promising.  The frame of these glasses are similar to the traditional Wayfarer, but slightly flare around hinges. The lens aren’t plastic.  Not even acrylic.  They are made of anti-reflective glass, by Barberini. This gives them a great amount of protection against UV rays as well as optical clarity. They come in a jet black, checker and tortoise pattern which makes them unisex, stylish and very versatile.

Grab a pair…or 3 today.  They are available at all Supreme suppliers.

G-Shock x Jordan Collection

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

G-Shock teamed up with MJ for this very exclusive release.

I used to be a huge fan of G-Shock watches a few years back, but then the obsession just kind of faded.  Since I gained interested in other styles of watches, I’ve still kept my eye on the progress that Casio has been making with the new styles of G-Shocks.  Only a few of their newer designs are drastically different than previous models, so none of them really catch my eye.  BUT, with this collection… they caught my eye immediately.  They’ve been collaborating with a lot of different designers and clothing lines lately, but Jordan brand is easily the biggest, most successful, and most recognizable collaboration.

This collection features 3 different models of G-Shocks in 3 brand new colors.  There is a DW6900CB-2 in baby blue, which represents MJ’s college days as a Tar Heel.  Next, there is the black GD100B-1 and the DW6900CB-4 in varsity red to represent his NBA career with the Chicago Bulls.

You want specs?  I got specs:

– Water Resistant – Up To 20 atmospheric Bars (200 meters)
– 1/100 seconds Stopwatch Function
– Full Automatic Calendar
– EL Backlight
– Multiple Alarm Settings
– 12/24 Hour Formats

 

I really like the models that G-Shock used in this collection, the colors are fresh as hell, and the theme of the collection is great.  These watches went on release a few days ago and are available in limited quantity in Footaction retails stores across the country!

Cast of Vices

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Something so simple can turn into an amazing piece of art.

Cast of Vices is a company that was “born from a desire to create artifacts out of out vices.”  With the release of their Collection No. 3 (above) they take a closer look at our society’s obsession with addiction.  Featuring cigarette butts, pills and bottle caps, this collection is an example of how a simple design can go a long way.  Each piece in this collection is hand crafted with .925 sterling silver, semi-precious stones and 14k white gold.  I like the theme they went with on this collection.  I encourage you to go to their site and read more about their motivation to make such an amazing line of jewelry.  This collection is especially cool to me because of the multi-purpose factor it has.  I could see many different people wearing these pieces for a number of different reasons.  A recovering alcoholic might wear the bottle cap designs to remember how far he has come from his addiction.  A cancer survivor might wear the cigarette design as a symbol of what he has been through and what caused the disease.  You get the point…  These pieces are meant to be more than just a pill, bottle cap, or cigarette on a necklace.  They make these because they want them to hold a special meaning to someone, somewhere.  I can dig it.

Horodron HD-01 (Concept)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This is a bold step towards the future of timepieces…

Most of time, when you find a watch you like, you’re going to run into one of two issues.  Either it’s too hard to read or it just doesn’t look cool.  The Horodron HD-01 would cover both of those issues extremely effectively.  Although this is only a concept, the chances of production are very likely.  The concept looks amazing.   It has five rows of screens, indicating the day in the week, the day, month and year.  Thanks to e-Ink, all the displays are as clear as typed text. The readout for the actual time is set below these rows, in a white-on-black standard digital display.  The designer, Jonathon Frey, got very innovative with this concept by creating a watch that is both fashionable and informative.  This is something that people would love to see go into production.  As I get details, I will update this post.
