…The LIP Mythic Jump Hour is unique?

LIP Mythic Jump Hour

The LIP Mythic Jump Hour Watch features three separate discs for hours, minutes, and seconds that spin exposed on the dial and then line up in the viewing window to tell the time.

With a stainless steel case, leather strap, and Swiss quartz movement, the LIP Mythic Jump Hour is also guaranteed to work as good as it looks.

    A collaboration separated by thirty years with the 1970’s “TV case & strap” design by Roger Tallon and updated as a jumping hour display by French designer Prisca Briquet for LIP.

    LIP watches have been around for over 150 years but were unavailable in the United States until now. The company is reintroducing some of their most important models from a modern collection that remains as visionary today as when first unveiled 35 years ago. Most are faithful recreations while others have been updated with new designer visions.

…The URWERK UR-202 is full of air?

URWERK UR-202

The UR-202 is the world’s first wristwatch to feature “an innovative new winding system regulated by compressing air utilizing miniature turbines”.

    Time on the UR-202 is displayed using telescopic minute hands operating through the middle of three orbiting and revolving hour satellites.
    The telescopic minute hands precisely adjust their length to follow the three vectors marking the minutes: 0 -14, 15 – 44, 45 – 60. Extended, they enable the UR-202 to display the time across a large easy-to-read, dial. Retracted, they allow for a very wearable and comfortably sized case; thus providing the wearer with the best of both worlds.

If you’ve got the financial fortitude, then the UR-202 is available in either red gold, white gold, black PE-CVD platinum, and ALTiN steel.

One of each please…

…Some calls should be blind?

A Blind Call

Have you ever forgotten to lock the keys on your cell phone, and then sat on your phone and unintentionally dialed your friend Aaron or Adam or Alexis?

Most people have, and a very interesting charity called A Blind Call wants to turn those unintentional dials into (somewhat) intentional donations.

Basically, you program a special number into your phone under the name ‘A Blind Call’, which should make that number first in your list. Then, the next time you accidentally dial out to your top A name, the cost of the call is donated to a charity for the blind.

It’s simple, it’s automatic, and it turns a common mistake into a charitable donation, so I just hope that it works its way to other countries so that I can sign up.
