Nerd Cool Rubber Watches from Nooka

C'est super cool, oui?

These rubber watches from Nooka turn the ancient art of time keeping on its august head. You tell teh hour by how many of the 12 dots are darkened, and the minute by the little horizontal bar on the bottom. I think the numeral is for the date.

Anyway, yeah, they're nerdy, and yet so very cool. I can just imagine them popping up all over Tokyo.

Too cool!
Being a gadget-freak-wanna-be (budget restrains me), I'd almost go for one.
I just wish the date numerals were larger. Older eyesight & all that.

Hummm - - -

$130 for that model, huh? But take heart: for those who REEALY wanna be trendy, Amazon has 114 models, priced at up to $315.

Somehow, I believe I'll struggle along with my forty-buck Timex Expedition - - Stainless steel, date-only, strong non-expanding band, and accurate to two seconds in four months.
