Watches have moved well beyond the simple functional timepieces of yesteryear, especially as so many of our gadgets treat telling the time as a very peripheral function. Today's watches aso need to look good on your wrist. Here's our pick of five top stylish high-tech watches. What are yours?
Linde Werdelin Oktopus II
Linde Werdelin Oktopus IILeaving aside whether something called an Oktopus ought to have eight hands, Linde Werdelin's diving-centric smart watch has a solid industrial design and comes in Titanium Black, Rose Gold and a very eye catching yellow design. They're apparently bound for Australian shores later this year.
Kisai UzumakiKisai's Uzumaki watch has a descending concentric circle design that catches the eye without impeding the watch's time telling function. It's a funky design that jumps out from its more plain wristband in a way that few other watches do.
Harry Winston Opus 12
Harry Winston Opus 12A watch without hands isn't pointing to the time, right? Not so with Harry Winston's creatively designed Opus 12 , which uses spinning markers in place of actual hands. The result is a watch face that looks busy, but definitely alluring at the same time. The only catch? It's a very limited edition, so you'll pay a pretty penny for one.
Tag Heuer Mikrotimer Flying 1000
Tag Heuer Mikrotimer Flying 1000At first glance, Tag Heuer's Mikrotimer Flying 1000 just looks like a sports watch — albeit a pretty good looking sports watch — but the trick here is that it's also astonishingly accurate — up to 1/1000th of a second — melding good looks with extreme functionality.
Kisai Seven LED
Kisai Seven LEDWant a watch that really stands out? Kisai's Seven LED Watch borrows conceptually from Tron, using two pulsing light rings to clearly display the time while looking retro-futuristic on your wrist.
