Klokers is no stranger to successful Kickstarter campaigns. They've successfully run two including the KLOK-01 and the 02. Their latest campaign for the Klokers Klok-08 Watch ($180) will be starting this October 2017. It pays homage to the sixties by utilizing two concentric discs to tell the time. Previous versions used three. By using just two it frees up space, allows for a more traditional 39mm case, and gives the dial a less cluttered feel. The largest disc is used to display the hours and minutes while the smaller disc displays the seconds. The movement is powered by a Swiss movement built by Ronda. When the Kickstarter campaign kicks off they'll be offering three dial colors: white, black, and orange along with four strap options including leather, Alcantara, textile, and steel. If you can't wait for the Kickstarter campaign you can preorder at the companies website today.

It features a 9.0-liter V8 twin-turbo engine paired with an eight-speed manual transmission that produces and insane 2,000 horses. The powerplant can get the car going from 0-62 mph in only 2.8 seconds. Top speed is 280 mph. If the Nemesis is actually tested at those speeds when produced it will be faster than a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse.

Only fifty of these will be made so if you have a mil laying around get your order soon, because I'm sure they'll sell out petty fast.
