Watches are one of the fashion items nowadays when there are many ways to know the time. Design that asserts one's sense is more important than functionality.
The "Tesla Watch" is a watch designed to look like it was made in the 19th or early 20th century. It brings the aesthetics of steampunk to the buyer's arm. The band is made of leather, and the crown used to set the time uses an old-fashioned key.
But perhaps the biggest feature of the Tesla Watch is that it has two tube-like lights. The inside of the light is equipped with a red LED, which can be turned on / off with the switch on the top of the clock. If you switch it on, it will create a unique mood, like a wristwatch operating in a vacuum tube.
The key used for time adjustment can be stored in the band when not in use. It's a small ingenuity, but for mecha lovers, it's a fun commitment.
The clock mechanism itself is made in Japan with high reliability, and it seems to tell the correct time for a long time. The operation is battery-powered. Please be assured that it is not a manual winding type that uses a key.
Tesla Watch is currently accepting reservations on the US online shopping site ThinkGeek. The price is $ 59.99. Shipping to Japan will be announced at a later date.
