70′s style disk dial wrist watches

ASOS’ gorgeous disk dial wrist watches take their design cues from the non-digital 70′s to display the time, thanks to two analogue wheels that spin through the hours and minutes. You tell the time by reading the numbers aligned with the cross-secting line down the middle of the face. The sell for £35, or roughly $70.

    Watches are my weakness when it comes to frivolous items – let’s face it, between smart phones and iPods, we all have 2-3 items besides a watch that we can use to tell time on our person at any given time – but I wouldn’t want this. Just… kinda… ugly.

    For my money, the Tokyo Bay “Neptune” has the same idea but better style:

    I’ve bought two (a new one after the first got pretty beat-up looking, roughly three years’ use), and I love ‘em.

    Cool for a semi-normal watch.

    That site sells Casio calculator watches for ~$130.00US!!!! Weren’t they like $20 back in the day?

    I guess they look OK, but I kind of rely on the visual image of two hands separating the 12hr/60min dial into 6ths or 1/4s. It’s the main reason I’ve never been able to go from analog to digital, even though I love the red LED Casios.
