Designer Mac Funamizu came up with an idea for a cell phone / upmc that used two layers of LCDs together to create a sense of depth. No reason why we can’t do this on watches as well, is there?

See below for images of his concept gizmo:

New Brand: Rebellion

Sometimes when you cut the Pr speak in a news release, you may end up with just one meaningful sentence in an entire page of ‘hand crafted’ and ‘state of the art’ hype i.e. Rebellion is a new Swiss made automatic brand that has launched a tourbillion as it’s first watch.

Interview: Matthew Waldman of Nooka


Matthew Waldman

by Adnan Arif

Four years ago, a frustrated creative took a chance and released two limited edition watches. Today, Matthew Waldman is the man behind Nooka, a fashion forward brand that has enjoyed a lot of love from the media and celebrities alike. He’s even featured in a new book called Design Enterpreneur by Steven Heller and Lita Talarico.

Recently, I got the chance to catch up with him:

Wrist: When I first interviewed you back in 2004, you had just parted ways with Seiko and were about to launch a limited edition Nooka despite some skepticism from some of the people around you. Looking back, How do you feel about your journey so far?

Matthew: The journey has been utterly amazing! I had no expectations when I produced the first 2,000 pieces and even thought that I might end up with a bedroom full of future gifts to give out the rest of my life! From that I now have a thriving business with offices in new york and tokyo, get fan mail, and have my designs on people I admire.

Tag Heuer now into luxury hard drives

The October 2008 issue of Wallpaper has an article on the new Tag Heuer’s new luxury phone, Meridiist that reveals a little more about how Tag is currently positioning itself.

In the article, Jean-Christophe Babin, President and CEO of Tag Heuer is quoted to have said that ten years ago, they were “only known for sports watches. Now in ten years time, they’ll be the luxury technology design brand of the 21st century.”

It also reveals that Tag has also launched it’s own hard drives and usb sticks but have limited the launch to just the Japanese market. This, in addition to their limited edition concept car and the luxury phone.

A Clock and a Stool


Tape Measure Clock

Japanese Design collective, N.O.L have a thing for off beat clocks as you can see from the amount of concepts they’ve developed including two where they combined stools with clocks. The first concept is called the Tape Measure Clock that show the current time not only from the front but also from the side.


The Dim clock

The Dim clock indicates the time with LED behind the fabric.


Felt Clock and Stool

The Felt Clock and Stool is an unusual combination where the face of the stool can be reused as a clock.



ho.ta.ru

The ho.ta.ru stool makes a better combo because you can use it as a clock and as a seat. There is LED underneath the seat fabric that shows the time.


Split

The Split splits the two hands with one hand showing only the hour and the other, the minute.


Peep

And finally, N.O.L’s sole clock that has been released commercially – The Peep which hides the entire watch face except for the current time. You can buy one from here.

Liquid Color

Yes, this is unrelated but it isn’t a stretch that this could be applied to watches. Portuguese designer, Luis Porem has created what he calls the RGB Rainbow Glasses. The glasses contain an internal channel where colorful ink can be filled in to create your own colors.

U-Boat Wannabe?

Tsovet is one of many new watch brands that have jumped into the U-Boat aesthetic bandwagon – large, minimal watches with a large typeface and a soviet themed utilitarianism. However, I admit I liked the one pictured above and who knows, they’ll find their way in this crowded watch market.

The company just started in the summer of 2007 by entrepreneur David Bonaventura. I’ve no information yet about the price point of the brand.
