My buddy Dodge over at MOKB pointed me to these oh so sweet watches today. Nooka watches are the brainchild of artist and designer, Matthew Waldman. The linear and graphic representation of time with Nooka timepieces presents a more intuitive way to view time. The visual mass increases as time passes, giving weight to an ephemeral and abstract concept. Nooka has an large collection of watches anywhere from $140 to $3000 and above. They really remind me of all the tokyoflash watches, with a bit more class.
The watch above is the Zon MR, you can get it over at the Nooka site for $650. There is a bit more about the watch below, and a link to the company website below that, check out the site it is really well designed and very clean looking.
"Nooka proudly presents the Nooka zon- our newest and most exclusive timepiece to date. The zon features a dual display. One display measures time much like an hour- glass, where each minute of the day is marked by a small block falling into place on the display. The second display provides a digital time reading. Additionally, the zon is a world-time watch, quickly providing the current hour in all 24 time zones. Available in black and white with leather strap and butterfly buckle, and mirror with mesh band. The zon is packaged with a spring bar tool and screwdriver so user can customize strap position: flush left, flush right or center."nooka
