While the world might be enamored with the flavor of the day at the moment where timepieces are concerned with smartwatches being released left and right, what with the Apple Watch being one of them, there is still a sizeable crowd out there who would prefer something that is a whole lot more traditional. Partime, for instance, is a young watch brand that hails from Zurich which will be going on board Swiss International Airlines in order to deliver its duty free range this summer by offering a new design. The Partime Swiss Edition is so special, it can only be bought when you are at an altitude of 10,000 meters – that is, in the middle of a flight, and these watches will be numbered and available exclusively to passengers of Swiss.
The Partime Swiss Edition is special enough to come with in a 45 mm, polished stainless steel case, where it will be individually numbered to ensure its uniqueness, will be waterproof, sports a LCD display, a digital time display that can show up at the touch of a button, and a battery life of approximately 2 years. Sounds like a dream timepiece to us, especially for those who love to spend plenty of time in the skies!

If you happen to be someone who is fond of being on time, then surely you would have a plethora of devices that are able to keep track of the time without missing a beat. While regular timepieces and the digital clock on your smartwatch or smartphone would work just fine, there are others who would prefer something that is more accurate, such as an atomic clock. The $149.95 24″ Outdoor Lighted Atomic Clock might be worth a look then if you happen to fall into such a category.
The 24″ Outdoor Lighted Atomic Clock, as its name suggests, is an oversized outdoor wall clock which will be able to maintain its unerring accuracy thanks to the radio clock transmitter that is located in Fort Collins, Colorado. Apart from boasting of glowing hour and minute hands, there will be a quartet of LEDs which illuminate the face whenever its light sensor indicate dark conditions. 2.75″ high Roman numerals let you read the time easily from up to 30′ away in the daytime, while there is also an integrated thermometer onto the face which indicates the current temperature, in the presence of an adjacent hygrometer that provides the relative humidity reading. The 24″ Outdoor Lighted Atomic Clock is capable of providing accurate time across the entire lower 48 United States, and it will never gain or lose a second in 60 million years.

So you are rich enough to actually own one of those fancy timepieces that come with plenty of moving parts within – so much so that they are all handmade, and most of the time, it would be some place in Switzerland that gets the job done. The thing is, some of these precious timepieces will need to be wound, and there are different ways of getting the job done. If you happen to want something that is on the cheap, how about considering the $69.99 Ivation Precision Watch Winder?
This particular device is meant for a single automatic timepiece, where it will be accompanied by an integrated IC timer alongside a red LED alarm clock. After all, as long as it gets the job done, one should be happy with the price point, right? Today’s most exquisite timepieces happen to be fitted to advanced automatic, perpetual movements, so to mate that to an automatic watch winder is imperative in order to maintain long-term accuracy. One particular main feature about this device is, you can choose between a clockwise and counterclockwise rotation, which will depend largely on your watch’s particular winding requirements. Using it regularly will keep your automatic watches wound and ready to wear when you need them.

Doing the same few tasks over and over again can make life exceedingly boring. We see the same scenery, do the same jobs, and get tired of it all. We need a change of pace now and again such as new perspectives and fresh ideas that make us flex our mental muscles. The best way to make you think aside from playing brain games, is making your surroundings challenge the common thought process.
This can include having inventive ways to wake yourself up in the mornings, shattering your reality now and again, or just wearing a watch that requires more than glancing down and seeing a number. Tokyoflash is near and dear to our hearts for exactly this reason. Seldom will you find one of their watches that is one hundred percent straightforward and easy to read. The newest addition to the Kisai family is the Logo Wood LCD Watch.
The clock is cased in 100% real wood, and is a stark contrast to its metallic colored leather strap. The face of the clock has an always-on display, where the hours are shown as blocks along the outside of the screen. It is easier to read the minutes, as they are directly in the center as numbers, though they are squished together, making them look more like a shape than a number at first glance. You can also view the time in binary if you’d prefer. There are three models, one with dark sandalwood that has a blue LCD display with a dark metallic strap, red sandalwood with a black LCD and a copper-looking metallic strap, or a maple wood with a mirror display and a silver metallic strap. This is going to cost you $99 for the next 40~ hours if you jump on the launch price, and will go up a bit in price after that point.
Available for purchase on Tokyoflash
