Our thanks go to Watchismo for sponsoring Boing Boing Blast, our once-daily delivery of headlines by email.
Watchismo just introduced a new collection from Hamilton Watches. Hamilton's Ventura was the first electric watch in the world, introduced in 1957 and reinvented today as faithful limited edition reissues and creative mechanical reinterpretations. Vintage modern designs are now the highlight, with very limited collections of the Hamilton X-01 and X-02, first inspired by the Stanley Kubrick-commissioned timepiece for the astronauts of 2001: A Space Odyssey. Some of the best designs are the simplest, like the just introduced Hamilton Intra-Matic watches' minimalist sixties aesthetic. See the entire Hamilton Watch Collection at Watchismo.
