We've got an acquaintance that has a massive collection of G-Shock watches -- clear plastic, diamond-covered, you name it, he has it. Except for these. Wood Shock Watches ($250) are normal G-Shock watches, featuring hand- and laser-crafted wooden bezels. Available in black or red, they offer all the features you'd expect from a G-Shock, including an auto-calendar function, EL backlight, 12/24-hour formats a multi-functional alarm, stopwatch, and 15 second/month accuracy. Notably missing is the typical water resistance, which we assume went out the window with the oft-unmentioned fire resistance when the normal bezel was replaced with wood. [via]
Featuring sleek, futuristic looks befitting of an alien spacecraft, the Hamilton Ventura XXL Elvis Anniversary Edition Watch ($TBA) doesn't appear to have much to do with the King. Or maybe not. It boasts a unique triangular, gunmetal case with a pointed tip signaling 3 o'clock, a black dial, red accents on the tip of the second hand and from 12-3 o'clock, and a smooth black rubber strap. So about that Elvis connection: Presley apparently wore a classic Ventura back in the day, and he was reportedly abducted on a spaceship that looked just like this watch.
