Busybodies - Timberland HT2 Craterface, Invicta Blockhead, & A Watch Worth Owning

Busybodies - Timberland HT2 Craterface, Invicta Blockhead, & A Watch Worth OwningTwo new unique inexpensive mult-functional, multi-dialed beasts. Above, the HT2 with plenty of junk in the trunk. An overdose on your wrist with analog-digital displays, four time zones, altimeter, thermometer, barometer, and an analog and digital compass. If you know someone that likes to get lost and be on time...$295-$345

Busybodies - Timberland HT2 Craterface, Invicta Blockhead, & A Watch Worth OwningThis one? I don't know, it's just big, offensive and ugly. And generally, I appreciate an ugly watch from time to time, just not sure this is one of them. From Invicta

Busybodies - Timberland HT2 Craterface, Invicta Blockhead, & A Watch Worth OwningPersonally, if we're going for multi-function overkill here, I'd much rather have this 1890 gunmetal world-time pocket watch. The front has a respectable dose of information with time, month, day, date, and moonphase but the back displays SEVEN time zones! And also understand, this is a mechanical timepiece, those are all moving parts gauging that much information in a little pod of blackened steel.

Granted it's about $9700 more than the other two watches above...but doesn't that seem like a deal now? From Bogoff->Link

Watchismo's Timewarp - Max Büsser's 19th Century Steel & Gunmetal Pocket Watch CollectionAfter many opportunities to address my proclivities in my Timewarp column in QP Magazine, I wanted to turn the loupe on people who never fail to impress me, to explore what makes them tick. First on my list was modern pioneer, Maximilian Büsser and his rare & unusual 19th century unsigned laminated iron, gunmetal and steel pocket watches.

120 Year Old Naked Ladies - 1890 Erotic Pocket Watch

120 Year Old Naked Ladies - 1890 Erotic Pocket WatchOh yeah, naked ladies playing harps... That's hot. Or so it was circa 1890 according to this awesome gunmetal cased erotic pocket watch full of sexy daguerreotype photos of loose Victorian ladies. One disc under the dial reveals a variety of rotating topless gals while the disc on the back exposes some other full frontal centenarian hotties through a porthole...or rather, a peephole.

And I forgot, it also tells the time...
