VOID V02 Watch

Posted by Scott




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…

Ash-
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.

Chis-
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.

Ryan-
nice! yeah, it works wonders. Unfortunately my new mouse isn’t quite as easy to pry open.

Evan-
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.
