FOSSIL Cross Digi watch - by Starck design

Fossil makes some pretty cool and affordable watches, but throw in designer Philippe Starck and you have a winner. The Cross Digi is a unisex watch with an adjustable silicone strap. The time is read vertically and downwards, while the date is read from left to right. Innovative display and classic Starck styling. $125 and comes in orange, green and white.

But I like the overall design of this piece. The case is an off-beat octagon (or something...Nonagon maybe? BTW doesn't Nonagon sound like the name of a 2 AM Infomercial product?) and the dial is a nice blend of 3 slate grays', getting darker as you go towards the center. I particularly like the sideways 12, a tiny piece of funky flair on an otherwise simple face. The band is pebbled-leather with hidden lugs, but I would change it (you can) for a more fun color. $120, and the watch is a perfectly proportioned 38 mm in diameter.

This is on ThinkGeek.com?? A classic yet modern watch. Besides the separate and unconventional seconds, hours and minute hands, the middle dial of the watch (which appears black in the photo) actually conceals a regular, clean, hour dot-markers dial. As the second hand rotates, it turns a top, clear plastic piece that's polarized (like your sunglasses). This makes the dial fade from crystal clear, to a darker, darker, twilight shade (hence the name) until it is night-black. Then, 20 seconds (and rotations later) it goes in reverse - from complete darkness to perfect clarity. This goes on and on, dark to light, light to dark. It's jewelry in motion. While how it works might be geeky, it's a modern and surprisingly cool looking watch. The leather band has no visible lugs, so it meets the watch case seamlessly, like a bracelet. The case is made with a sleek, matte aluminum finish. All the marker hands are different shapes. And it's an understated 36 mm in size, letting the watch itself shine without shouting. To truly appreciate the watch in motion, watch the video on their site. $120. UPDATE: Figures this isn't a ThinkGeek exclusive. It's from the Projects Watch Co., by designer Daniel Will-Harris - maker of the also modern and cool 'Reveal' Watch, among others. Check out the included pics for close ups of each phase.

  • pretty cool idea. it reveals the current time through a looking glass while the rest of the watch falls under darkness.
