There seems not much room left for normal watch on market. Most people choose to not wear watch at all for the left small portion, they either have those high-tech smart watch, or very unique and usually luxurious watch. The lunar watch is definitely representative of the latter group. Crafted from olivine basalt that was collected on the surface of the moon by the Soviet Luna probe in 1974, the chunky timepieces are hand-crafted in Switzerland and only 25 units will be made. The rock used to make the watch was claimed to be 4.5 billion years old, from right around the time the Moon and Earth are believed to have formed – older than any life on our planet. It also comes with an Italian black leather strap, sapphire crystal face, and stainless steel case back. Each watch comes with a certificate of authenticity and is priced at $27,500. It is definitely one of a kind watch.
This interactive watch by Julien Moise uses the wearer’s own renewable wind energy to power it’s icy blue display. To read the time the user simply blows on the propeller mechanism to generate just enough electricity to activate a short visual sequence. It looks like a nice design but definitely need more technical thinking, such as the damage caused by dust, rain, sleeves? And how to keep the hour on time if the blowing is just for display. Does it still require some kind of battery to make sure the watch is on time? [source]
