New Mechanical Automatic From Fossil

You think you know Fossil Watches? Many probably don't realize that they produce some very cool mechanical automatic and Twist watches.

Don't judge a watch by the dial, or lack thereof. These skeleton automatics by Fossil are completely exposed (no laws against that thankfully) and showcase all the mechanics. Even the hour markers are cutaway from the case.

Top Ten Square Watches - It's Hip To Be Square!


Our Top Ten Square Watches

Aren't you tired of the cliche round watch? If we see another circle, we might just throw up! It's time for our own 'round-up' of some favorite square watches at Watchismo.

See some of our picks below or you can always check out our new square watch category here.

Sometimes it's good to think inside the box.

A modern classic from Nixon Watches, the Nixon Murf is a disc dial like no other. One disc for minutes, the other for hours -- both line up like a turntable to tell the time. Cool features include top case crown, dial illumination from lamp and secret message seen only from one specific angle...

Did we mention it is 50% off? Well, now we did.

Check out the Black Nixon Murf Watch
Ahead of its time, the early seventies LIP Watches still look as modern today as they did back in 1973. Especially this new chocolate brown LIP Mach 2000. Created by famed French industrial designer Roger Tallon, the Mach 2000 collection all feature spheres for crowns.

Check out the LIP Mach 2000 Brown Square Watch
The master of approximate timing comes from an unlikely source, Germany! Like you, we thought Germans only make things precise with precision but not the Qlocktwo. This watch is like nothing else, time is told in words with approximation -- y'know, the way we all describe time in reality.

Check out Qlocktwo Watches
Nooka did it first, time in dots, dashes and blocks of liquid crystal. This forever cool NYC brand was the originator of interpreting and seeing time in a whole new way.

Best of all, all Nooka watches at Watchismo are friggin 60% off!

The Barcelona 666 "Megabyte" series is what is commonly called a "mystery dial". Two dots rotate the outer circle revealing the hours and minutes. One hand is distinguished by the other with one solid and one outlined dot-marker.

Check out the Barcelona 666 Megabyte Watch
We love everything Dieter Rams has designed and we're really excited to now sell the Braun collection of watches. They perfectly capture his "Less is More" ethos.

Uhr-Kraft watches of Germany produce massive machines of mechanical precision. We are lucky to have a rare deal on the entire brand, many up to 75% off. Don't miss out, once these sell, that's it.

01 The One always produces original watches and this is no exception. Simplicity is always attractive if done right and this 'Spinning Wheel' disc watch is definitely done right. And this watch is a major bargain at just $79 bucks, that's 60% off.

Check out the 01 The One Spinning Wheel Watch
Black & White Simplicity... The Vestal Quadra is quite simply a cool timepiece, easy to read, stylish and with 50% code VESTAL50, yours for only $120. That's a fact Jack!

Check out the Vestal Quadra Black Watch
You want square, we've got square -- this impressive timepiece from Ingersoll Watches is a giant cube of steel and functionality. Featuring an automatic mechanical movement with triple date and dual time zone might appear to be a time-traveling homing device.

The Limited Edition Mr. Jones Observatory Orbiting Sun & Moon Timepiece - This Watch is out of this world!


Mr. Jones Observatory

Limited Edition of only 100

Now Made in London

The Observatory displays the time based on the position of the sun or moon around the earth. The time is read off the scale on the upper half of the face. The position of the sun indicates the hours from 6am until 6pm, while the moon represents the hours from 6pm through to 6am. The golden comet indicates the minutes as it orbits the earth.

The time display on The Observatory is based on the sun and moon type pocket watches that were first produced in England in the late 1600s. At this time there was a period of experimentation into how to represent the time, before the concentric hour and minute hands were established as the universal standard.

The watch is released in an edition of 100 pieces, with each watch numbered on the back of the watch case. The Observatory was printed and assembled in Mr. Jones workshop in London.

Squiggles for hands? Yup, this absolutely confounding looking timepiece from Nava Design is actually super easy to read the time.
Check out the Nava Ora Unica
Looks confusing, doesn't it? It's actually quite cool, this triple handed Aeromatic splits up the hours and minutes into three phases. Mensa membership not required...
Check out the Aeromatic Triple Phase Mechanical
Seriously, this is as WTF as it gets. Hands floating in space? That's the idea with the zero gravity concept of this M-Theory watch.
Check out the M-Theory Time & Space Zero Gravity Moonlight Watch
We've had our share of "what the heck is going on there?" with our first Watchismo brand, Xeric. The first watch named the XERICSCOPE features a fully-exposed, orbiting 12-hour mechanical movement (that is also the hour hand!) with one of a kind double-sided minute hand and dual timezone display.

Check out the Watchismo designed Xeric Watch Collection
If you know Mr. Jones watches, you know there is always a tinge of life and death in every timepiece he creates. Never more true than with the Vingt Mille, an homage to the fearless Captain Nemo, this watch shows the dramatic attack of the giant squid from 20,000 leagues under the sea. The endless battle between squid and man depicts the time, from hour to hour each appears to be gaining the upper hand. The two men being held by the squid indicate the hours and minutes.
Check out the Mr. Jones Vingt Mille
It doesn't get nuttier than this, a watch with no display whatsoever! Retrogadget watch pioneer Click Watches created the KEYPAD. A chunky number pad and no distinguishable display adds up to a cool new way to showcase the time!
Check out the Click Watches Keypad Watch
Something doesn't seem quite right here, right??? At first glance, it is an elegant, minimal watch. But things are not so simple. A subtle effect is taking place as elusive numbers pass in and out of view. The hour "hand" is actually a disk, with the hand silhouette reversed out, exposing the numbered face beneath.

Mutewatch Poppy Red1Glow, Swipe & Vibrate, the Mutewatch in Poppy Red
This is a watch?

Indeed it is, the Mutewatch is designed to be simple and intuitive. Just tap the flat surface and the touch screen lights up, then swipe through the functions clock, alarm and timer.
You set the time for your alarms by tapping directly on the digits – tap on the top of the digit for a higher number or on the bottom of the digit for a lower one. When you want to erase an alarm, simply pinch the touch screen.
The Mutewatch also features a built-in motion sensor. High levels of movement trigger an increase in the intensity of the vibrating alarm and a simple flick of your wrist activates the glowing display from underneath the case.

-devonDevon Tread 2 'The Shining'
Two words sum up the WTF watch of WTF watches, 'Rotating Belts!' Unless you've seen one operate in person, it's hard to imagine just how cool this watch really is. Wear this watch and you're an instant rock star as people literally stop you in the street. Truth be told, you gotta nearly be a rock star to afford one but they are worth every penny.

 slipNonlinear Slip Watch SW02 in stainless steel and brown leather
Off kilter? Out of whack? Nope, this is the Nonlinear Slip watch. Appropriately named, this simple, minimal watch appears to have slipped on the band. This inferred movement gives the watch its unique character. The face crosses the wrist band at 20 degrees, making it more ergonomic to read. The edge of the band penetrates the casing at hours 12 and 9, making the minimal face easier to read.

See The New Qlocktwo Time In Words Now in Rose & Yellow Gold


Time In Words Now In Gold

New QLOCKTWO by Biegert & Funk

Biegert & Funk presents the world‘s first wristwatch in words. The Qlocktwo watch does not show the time with hands or digits. Time is indicated on this purist watch as readable text, turning it into a statement: “It is half past nine”. The square watch face has a uniform grid of 110 letters. When the button is pressed, words light up in unexpected places which describe the time. The words also take double duty indicating the date and seconds in a way that has to be seen to be appreciated.

The design is minimalist and precision crafted, its form reduced to the essentials and now in long awaited rose gold and yellow gold. Choose from either all brushed gold or polished gold finish.
