Multi-Format LED Display Watch

The retro segmented red LED display and hardened aluminum case give this watch a unique look that might appeal to watch aficionados, but in reality it’s the geeks of the world who will want this strapped to their wrist. Why you ask? Well the display is actually touch-sensitive, but the only thing tapping the face actually does is switch the way the time is displayed between binary, octal, decimal and hexadecimal. So while it might not be able to compete with more expensive watches when it comes to design and style, I’d like to see a Rolex switch to a binary mode. (Actually I wouldn’t.)

It’s available from ThinkGeek for $149.99 but since only 200 of these were made you’ll want to act fast if you really want one.

  1. As much as I like it I'm just not a watch guy. Or a jewelry guy for that matter. Except of course for the big gold dog chain around my neck with the giant gold and diamond letter “M” hanging from it. Take that Jane See more. Actually Jane looks pretty darn scrumptious for her age.

  2. A perfect gift for the geek in one's life. I would buy one for all of my programmer friends. Well most, I know they are geeks, but I doubt they can read the time in most of those settings.
