…Paint jobs on cars shouldn’t be outrageous?

Ten Most Outrageous Car Paint Jobs of 2008

Some people just don’t understand the art of subdued simplicity, but if that’s the case, then having your car listed on Jalopnik’s “Ten Most Outrageous Car Paint Jobs of 2008” is probably an honor.

From lingerie themed and Swarovski covered MINIs to gold leafed Aston Martins, matte black Rolls Royces and chromed out McLaren SLRs, it’s a what’s what and who’s who in the crazy custom car world from this past year, and definitely worth a look.

…The Nooka Zon is sophisticated?

Nooka Zon

Nooka has always been known for watches that are a little…unique, but their latest line, which drops next week and will be called the Zon, features a style that I think most people could agree with. (And a price tag that many cannot, at $650!)

The pixel system counts the time, and there’s a world time setting for world travelers.

Tired of counting pixels just to tell the time?

Not a problem. Nooka’s Zon can also be told to tell the time in a standard digital time format, though that’s probably not that important for the Zon’s intended audience.

With its leather or silver band and a subdued, sophisticated looking face however, the Zon may just represent the changing face of Nooka, though I wouldn’t worry to much about them loosing their edge.
