Mainstream Digital Automatic on the horizon

radocera3

While the first and only digital automatic watches were pioneered by Ventura, Rado’s new autodigi is a hint of things to come. This is because the movement used in the watch, ETA E18.711, was designed and manufactured by ETA and I wonder if they will allow other companies to purchase the movement from them eventually (ETA is a movement manufacturer and they supply a lot of wristwatch brands). If this happens, we may see a lot more digital automatic watches on the market and who knows, you may finally see digital accepted in luxury wristwatches.

The Zayu

All new from Nooka – The Zub Zayu that supposedly uses a weight transfer to make the watch feel incredibly light (I will know it for sure when i get to test it out) and a ambidextrous design that wears well on both right and left wrists.

Let’s play a game

The L.E.D Eruidi L69-085OE-GSL

The Nooka Zot

Let’s play a game: One of these watches is a blatant rip off of the other, One of these watches just isn’t original, Can you guess which one is a copy of the other by the time I finish my song?

Answer: It’s the L.E.D L69-85OE-GSL that looks uncomfortably close to the Nooka Zot. I spotted this at Basel 2010.

L.E.D is designed by a automobile designer named Mr. Adolf Indermaur.

The Zaz

Nooka_Zaz_BK_close

When I was a kid, there used to be a popular desk clock where the digits would appear on a see-through screen. Nooka brings back that technology for it’s latest Zaz model.

The luxury model uses the ZENV movement which means the first two bars indicate the hours, the third one represents the minutes. The RRP is 395 USD.

The Anti-Fashion Fashion wristwatch

You’ve to give it to Diesel for being fresh with such consistency. This year, they made me do a double take when i first spotted the dz4160 shown above. At first I thought it was photoshopped. Renzo Russo, the man behind Diesel calls this – his company’s ability to innovate in stagnant fashion markets as the ‘Diesel treatment’.

In a recent book, Wilbert Das, Diesel’s creative director, explained their approach further:

“We’ve always been fascinated by things that are kitsch, colourful, decorative. Sometimes we refer to it as “retro-futuristic”, but that doesn’t quite capture it. We like to clash styles, piling references on top of one another. We get out of our way to challenge definitions of good taste. We’re not interested in fashion – we prefer to create things that are entirely our own. Diesel is anti-fashion fashion.
