Top 16 Daring Digital Watches

By in Fashion, Featured on

“Forget those pesky, faceless hands that people always misread”, declared the first digital watch over four decades ago, “from this point forward no one will ever be late for a meeting again!” Okay, so that notion didn’t exactly play out as expected but the digital watch was definitely a big step up in the convenience department, not to mention a point of no return. Here we are forty years later and the best digital watches are still going strong as statements of both style and convenience. We scoped out some of the latest and greatest in digital timepieces and we’re listing them out for your consideration. In addition to helping you look sharp, maybe, just maybe, a few of you can actually use one to be on time for once!

Casio Classic Digital Watch – Gold

For the man who doesn’t always wear a digital watch, but wants to make a statement every time he does wear one, consider the Casio Classic. With a gold-tone stainless steel profile, this is the kind of gear that will attract eyeballs from across the room. An electro-luminescent panel allows for an easy read, but let’s be honest you’re getting this for the gold aura and telling time is practically an afterthought. This might be one of the best digital watches if only because of how many eyes it will magnetise in your direction.

Nooka Unisex ZENHKBK Digital Display Quartz Black Watch

The Nooka is another surefire conversation starter thanks to a face that’s somehow both advanced and retro looking at the same time. The brainchild of artist/designer Matthew Waldman, who aspires to create “technoprogressive” products, the Nooka is exceptionally light and completely unmistakable thanks again to a face that shows the time in digital bars and kind of resembles the lap pool at your local gym, but you know, in a good way.

Braun Men’s BN0046BKBKG Digital Display Quartz Black Watch

Nixon Men’s A3601263-00 Unit SS Digital Display Japanese Automatic Silver Watch

Thanks to a surgical-grade stainless steel case, band, bezel and dial ring, the Nixon Automatic Silver Watch is a force to be reckoned with. It almost looks like you’ve strapped a tiny transformer to your wrist that could at any moment grow steel wings and fly away. This might be the last watch you ever buy.

Nixon The Time Teller Digi

Nixon definitely approaches horology with an innovative sensibility. The company went the playful route on the Time Teller Digi, which can tell the time in a variety of different formats and flaunts a somewhat kitschy vibe. The Time Teller reminds us that not every fashion statement has to be dead serious in order to work.

Buy it here: $80

 

void 2

Void Watch V01MKII-GO/LB

In contrast to the Nixon Time Teller, the Void V01MKII-GO/LB exudes elegance and says that sometimes “dead serious” is the only way to approach design. By way of a drool inducing light brown leather strap and gold case, the Void V01MKII-GO/LB is the kind of watch you wear to tell others you’re a man of excellent taste without having to open your mouth.
