Mixing understated looks with advanced technology, the TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 1887 Chronograph ($3,900) celebrates the company's 150th anniversary in style. The new Carrera Calibre is powered by TAG's new Calibre 1887 chronograph movement, which uses 320 components to ensure accuracy and longevity. Features include a scratch-resistant sapphire back to allow for a good look at the movement, three separate counters on the face, a leather or metal band, and luminescent hour and minute hands. And just think: you can have it for 1887 easy payments of $2.07 (plus shipping and handling).
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.
