VOID V02 Watch
This is the David Ericsson designed VOID V02 watch. I’ve seen a lot of watches in this retro/modern vein (most notably by Diesel and Nixon) but I’ve never really seen anyone nail it to the point where I think I’d actually wear the thing. It’s usually just a sort of passing fascination with the object, I don’t see it as something I would want on me. But I’m pretty sure I would rock this one until the band fell off (still nursing a decade old Diesel — from when they hadn’t yet plunged into the abyss of Fossil-like robotechery (btw, Fossil makes Diesel watches) — probably time for an upgrade). This thing is clean all around and while the gold is a bit much for me, the color combo is really nice to look at. At £125 it won’t completely annihilate your bank account, like say, this.

I saw this second one a while ago and I think it’s even better than the one with digits. I also think that Diesel makes one of the most interesting watches, but as you said: it’s not as refined as these. Most definitely the most beautiful watch I’ve seen! Thinking about getting one, but I would also be afraid to lose it…

Wow, thats actually pretty cool. I started my collection with a Diesel watch back in the day. They have made leaps and bounds with this kind of retro design. It would be nice to see something like this in a Belt Drive movement. Similar to the Monaco V4. | http://us.tagheuer.com/en/monaco-v4watch/review#/en-conceptwatchmonacov4

I’d bet a reliable belt drive would be tough to make for under $200. I usually prefer digital if possible, you can always count on it even when it’s a $50 watch.
Yeah, that thing is amazing. Has “60’s aerospace” written all over it. Too chunky to actually wear though, unless you’re a yacht pilot or some sort of jet boat enthusiast. Or hot air balloons and Richard Branson need to be involved somehow.
nice! yeah, it works wonders. Unfortunately my new mouse isn’t quite as easy to pry open.
Thanks for the link, those are really nice. Although I usually prefer a more angular look with watches.

@ryan + scott,
How much weight did you add (# of quarters)? Is it a comfort thing or does it help with accuracy?

Yeah I’ve been rockin’ a black Void for about 2 years now. It’s by far my favorite watch to rep. Feels stellar on the wrist, looks amazing with just about everything; all around incredible.

Thanks for posting watches!
I like the face except for all that extra space. Maybe its room for a sticker or something, or make it a doodle pad to write a message or phone number.
Excited about the Ipod Nano being a watch. There are some cool companies coming out with nice bands.
ps. first time posting, long time watcher, your music selection is top notch!
