USB Watch: For The Eccentric!

timeless-watch1-qtgq7-3342

The inventors of the hackneyed USB port would have had the least idea of how utilitarian their concept will turn out to be. Its application today ranges from data transfer to a charging dock. And the latter has seen several ingenious manifestations, one of which is this archaic looking ‘Timeless Watch’. This watch has all feasible signs of being a long distance runner; the primary reason being the absence of mechanical components. From what we gather, the watch sources its energy from a laptop or computer, and perhaps stores it in an in-built battery. For those of you who believe that eccentricity begets attention, this gadget can make a freakish fashion statement. Fix the USB back into the slot located beside the dial and you are all ready to show it off to your techie friends.

Hublot King Power Red Devil Watch For Manchester United

Hublot King Power Red Devil Watch For Manchester United

716ci1129rxman11-pr-lr-1304840196

For the third time Swiss watch brand Hublot and UK Football team Manchester United come together for a special limited edition watch. The two have been in a long standing partnership, and the fruits of their efforts should appeal to more than just sports fans. This new watch however should be a particular treat for Manchester United fans. For one thing, part of the watch comes from the actual Old Trafford stadium. Look closely at the hour markers - these applied elements are a bit green in tone. They are actually made of the famous grass from the stadium. Hublot experimented with how to do this and finally came up with a process that involves freeze drying and then lacquering segments of the grass. They almost look like “sod crystals.”

The 48mm wide watch is based on the King Power collection and comes in two case materials. A limited edition version of 500 pieces comes in black matte ceramic, while a 250 piece limited edition will come in 18k King gold. Don’t know what King gold is? Neither do I, but it is likely some new gold alloy that Hublot will be using on its King Power timepieces. One new element to the case design is the chronograph pushers that now have a special security bar over them for style and protection.

Inside the watch is a special chronograph movement for measuring soccer game halves. It is the HUB4245 skeletonized automatic chronograph with centrally mounted chronograph hands. Plus, the chronograph measures up to 45 minutes - the length of a football game half. The dial also has a bright red Manchester United Devil mascot figure that looks great with the overall theme. Attached to the strap is a new style of rubber bracelet with fun red strip in the middle. Each of the Hublot King Power Red Devil watches will come specially signed by Manchester United’s own Sir Alex Ferguson - this is probably one of the best watches ever for a soccer team. Look for them soon.
