Urwerk takes what you know about watches and turns that knowledge on its head. The radical design of the Urwerk UR-110 Eastwood Watch ($TBA) continues their unique tradition by telling time through the use of vertical indicies for minutes and an orbiting satellite complication that rotates the hours around the watch face. The correct time always show in the right side of the watch. Additional features include day/night and oil change indicators, a black coated Grade 5 titanium case with Macassar ebony, topped off with a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating. The Urwerk is a larger watch measuring 47mm x 51mm x 16mm and is only water-resistant to about 100 feet. If I was going to pay six figures for a watch, I doubt I'd even risk it in the shower.

The Nissan Bladeglider Concept ($TBA) is the latest creation from Ben Bowlby. Its unique shape takes its cues from swept-wing aircraft, which improves aerodynamics and stability without sacrificing response. The Bladeglider uses the same battery technology as the Nissan Leaf and has in-wheel-motors that allows for individual control of the rear wheels. The great news is that Nissan doesn't consider this vehicle a concept, they've stated that it's a prototype for a future production vehicle. Stay tuned to Nissan's website and lets hope they keep a lot of the design elements.(more…)
