We might not be able to slow down the ravages of time but we can certainly display it in a plethora of quirky ways. Here are five of the best geeky wrist huggers out there...
Kisai Rogue SR2 – Tokyo Flash
Fancy adorning your arm with a miniature HAL/Iron Man chest-piece reactor? Tokyo Flash has got you covered with this chunky LED offering, whose circular ring of blocks easily reveals the time (after you’ve read the instructions, that is).
Zub Zayu – Nooka
With a design as wacky as its name, this watch features a handy sleep mode to save juice. Green enthusiasts will also appreciate the food-grade silicon packaging, which can be used for cooking.
Icon watch – & Design
This 8-bit time-keeper is a nostalgic throwback to the pixelated consoles of Yesteryear. It may lack numbers, but it more than makes up for that in geek chic – perfect for plumbers and blue hedgehogs alike.
BR01-92 Red Radar – Bell & Ross
The Red Radar looks as though it’s been detached from the cockpit of a stealth fighter jet, which is unsurprising given its aviation-inspired dial. Rotating discs and separate sections for seconds, minutes and hours are the secret to this very limited-edition ticker.
Black Titanium Pro Trek – Casio
This titanium Casio wouldn’t look out of place draped over 007 himself and with a solar-powered battery, altimeter, barometer, thermometer and digital compass, we’re sure the suave double agent would have everything he needs – bar a deadly laser, of course.
