Both these brands are not interested in ripping each other off. Both these brands got the same watch, so what’s going on?

Rolex x Cartier

drcartsm

There was a time when Rolex would write down the name of the retailer on the face of the wristwatch and there was a time when Cartier used to sell Rolexes in their stores. Put two and two together and you’ve got a stack of antique Rolexes out there with the Cartier signature like this 1967 Double Red Sea Dweller up for auction that has a pre-sale estimate of between $25,000 to $45,000. Credit: Hodinkee for spotting this.

This is more than a wristwatch

If the Onion, the fake news humor site, wrote a parody of a wristwatch press release, this would be it:

In a world of constant reflection on the past and constant worry about what tomorrow may bring, the main goal of the Now is the Time wristwatch is to inspire timekeepers to live in the only moment that matters – right now. Void of numbers, the Now is the Time wristwatch is instead filled with a uniquely inspirational message. In place of the missing digits, the words “Now is the Time” are laid out in typical clocklike fashion.

“This is more than a wristwatch,” stated Van Strickland, creator of the Now is the Time wristwatch. “It’s a gateway to dream realization.”

Wristwatch Installation

Artist Ignacio Uriarte has created an art installation that shows a time-lapse of 60 seconds. Here’s how it works – 60 watches are attached to each other like a circle. They are adjusted to the local time except for one difference – each one is one second ahead of the previous watch. So time flows at a speed of one circle per minute and when an hour passes by, a beep tone goes around the circle, jumping from one watch to the next.

Bell on Wrist

Here’s a cheeky product idea by a design group called the Poor Life – Since watches are on the decline due to the rise of the cell phone, they’ve suggested a product called PRZEPRASZAM that is a bicycle bell attached to your wrist so you can use it to get people to move out of the way as you walk down the street.
