Suicide Wristwatch Ad

Let-it-bleed

This is an old Vestal print ad that I had saved in a file somewhere. Probably the only Watch advertisement that depicts a fake suicide. :^)

Watch Necklace

I found this image of a man wearing his watch collection as a bling neck piece and found it intriguing enough to post it. In fact, I think I wouldn’t mind seeing this catching on.

I came across this gem of a tutorial to customize your Casio’s backlight. I am sure some of you are better skilled at doing a better job at it.

Technology is Magic

Imagine walking up to a watch display and just as you near it, a glass raises up from in front of the watch to magnify the watch face and a light underneath the glass illuminates and reveals a brick illustration on the glass. Wouldn’t that be grand?

Dietlin is in the business of making these special custom displays. This one is their latest. You can watch a video presentation here.

The things people do to sell watches

Beatenupbernie
The brand Hublot didn’t really need to do this but it did and in my opinion, it was in poor taste – They featured a bruised mugshot of Bernie Ecclestone, the Formula one boss in their recent advertisement. He got the bruises while being robbed last month along with his girlfriend. The attackers stole his watch and a month later, he pedalled his mug for Hublot with a quote attributed to him – “See what people will do for a Hublot”.

Mobiado x Angular Momentum

Mokumegane-Watch-1

Swiss Wristwatch manufacturer, Angular Momentum, teamed up with Mobiado to create a companion piece to one of their wristwatches. Angular is known for hand painting miniature art on their watches and so they’ve created their own Mobiado 712MG Angular Momentum Edition Cell Phone with a similar hand painted art that takes inspiration from the japanese spirit of Mokume Gane which is a japanese method of metal working that was invented in the 1600s. Mokume gane is a Japanese term that literally means “wood eye metal.”

Kanye West rhymes Fossil

This isn’t worth a blog post but I was amused by Kanye West name dropping Fossil in his latest track:

“I admit my first watch was a Fossil. Now I’m in the Louvre, lookin’ for fossils.”
