How Much Would You pay for these Funky Watches? WOW!
We are witnesses of the era of the smart phones that are slowly making watches and clocks obsolete and slightly unnecessary. These watches, whether homages to the grand-master clock makers of old or innovative new designs for the modern era, seek to keep our love of watches and timepieces alive.
The following designs are absolutely beautiful, constrained to a tiny disk strapped to your wrist. And yet, despite this limitation, there are round tables surrounded by knights, whirling planets, beautiful birds and poetic fairy-tales. Many of the world’s greatest watchmakers such as Orient bambino watches online, also no longer limit themselves to simply documenting a 24-hour day, either. Weeks, months, and the time in other cities around the world can all be monitored, and even the moon’s phases and the movement of celestial bodies. You name it and they’ll have it made especially for you.
1 Astronomical Watch
Digital watches have opened up a new world of opportunities for watchmakers that just weren’t available before. Sleek modern designs, lights, and the lack of moving parts are just a few of the basic hallmarks of the digital watches on this list. But this amazing and unique watch is better than that. Midnight Planétarium is a luxuriuos masterpiece of science and design. It is a watch that shows 6 planets from the Solar system rotating around the Sun in their actual pace.
The creation of this spectacular device took 3 whole years of work and 396 separate pieces – which is why it costs $245,000. The planets are represented with tiny precious and semiprecious stones: Mercury (serpentine), Venus (chloromelanite), Earth (turquoise), Mars (red jasper), Jupiter (blue agate), and Saturn (sugilite). 2 planets from the Solar System were not included given the pace of their rotation around the Sun pace, which would hardly be noticeable within a human lifetime: it takes over 84 years for Uranus and 164 years for Neptune to complete full revolutions!
To die for, just look at it.
2 Eye of the Storm
This is a unique watch design, because as you can see, it is a watch clock without face. Not that it extremely complex to know the time, because we only need to know where the clock’s hands are pointing. In this watch, the time is illuminated on the black outer frame only when a button is pressed; otherwise, the watch is completely blank.
3 Salvador Dalí’s Persistence of Memory-Inspired Melted Wristwatch
The Melted Wristwatch is a chrome analog watch powered by quartz precision movement, features a black rubber band, a melted shape case and roman numerals dials.
4 Ziiiro Mercury Watch
Ziiiro had the idea to create watches without any hands or numbered faces, so the results are some of the coolest and funkiest designs on the market. Using colors, orbiting planetary imagery and swirls, these watches will cause a double take every time. The tip of the inner ring represents the hour and the outer ring the minutes. They swirl in opposite directions, creating a visual unsurpassed by any other timepiece.
5 Excalibur Watch
Not sure if this watch was inspired by the medieval fantasy drama “Game of Thrones”. The Roger Dubuis‘s new Excalibur collection, the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Round Table, a limited-edition model distinguished by its 12 sculptural “knights” stationed at each hour marker.
6 The Ora Unica Watch
You might be confused as to how to tell time on the Ora Unica, but it’s actually quite simple. Just look at the position of the inner end of the squiggle for the current hour, and the outer end for minutes. This is a true represent of the less is more fashion trend.
7 SoH – A Second Of Happiness Watch
The SoH watch is meant to look like a face, as you can see. The focal point of the design are two rotating discs that are meant to look like eyes, and the pupils are the indicators. The left eye disc indicates the hours and the right disc is for the minutes. Perhaps it seems a bit complicated, but for people who are into unique designs and funky watches, this is actually quite interesting.
