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.

Take a closer look at G-Shock Watches from Watchismo. These are limited and special editions with designs beyond the expected. See analog mixed with digital displays, and solar power combined with hyper-color cases resistant to mud, rain, shock and disaster. They're the ultimate tough watches, born from a developer's dream of creating a watch that never breaks, and guided by a "Triple 10" development concept: 10-meter free-fall endurance, 10-bar water resistance and a 10-year battery life.

After years of research and development, the world's first Swiss mechanical automatic digital watch is a reality: the Ventura Sparc MGS. Pierre Nobs' Ventura Automatic Digital Watch, devised in 2000, allowed movements of the wrist to power a micro-generator; the electric energy gained feeds an optoelectronic time-keeping module. Its array permits a view of the mechanism from above, alongside a 250-segment 12-digit LCD, which gives the SPARC MGS its characteristic appearance. The latest operating system, EasySkroll v.2.0, allows for later upgrades—another first in wristwatches— and is intuitively operated by a single scroller. View all Ventura Watches at Watchismo.

Gutted of clutter and completely exposed, the limited edition & numbered mechanical Storm Mekon watches (released exclusively at Watchismo) have totally deconstructed the basic wristwatch while maintaining traditional boundaries. The case frames no physical dial but instead supports a lone single bridge of gears spanning the void across the wrist presenting the hours and minutes into what might be considered an analog hourglass.

Watchismo has just added three of the coolest independent watch brands to 'The VAULT', a curated collection of extraordinary time machines.

Devon Watches' Tread 1 exposes a mesmerizing, interwoven system of patented conveyor belts, which include critical elements to allow the optical recognition system to know every belt position at all times.

Azimuth Watches echo a mathematical term used by astrologers, navigators and military men to survey their bearings. The measurement now represents cerebral pursuits: a reflection of time and space drawn from the word's Arabic origins, where it evokes the route taken by a traveler.

RSW Watches' neo-brutalist design pays homage to futurism, oblique architecture and the earliest electronic musical instruments. Check out 'Outland', a contemporary masculine wristwatch modeled on the compass.

Check out the DEFAKTO Inkognito. The idea is to display the time with the minimum information while being exact, as needed. This new German-made one-handed watch collection is stripped down to the core, removing all branding from the dial, leaving a single hand to let you know precisely what the approximate time is. DEFAKTO Watches use top of the line Swiss ETA 2824-2 mechanical automatic movements, which can be viewed through the sapphire crystal on the caseback.

The watch is designed for people who don't feel the need to count every second.

Minimum information, maximum accuracy! Watchismo introduces the world's first Two Handed One Hand Watch. The Botta Duo 24 watches are a traveling minimalist's dream watch. A single hand rotates two separate time zones, a prominent hand for the 12 hour ring and a subtle hand for the 24 hour ring.

This is an extension of the very popular Botta Uno watches with single one-handed displays. Check out more cool one-handed watches at the Watchismo Single Hand Watch Collection.

This special edition version of Mr. Jones Watches 'The Last Laugh' features artwork by British Tattoo artist Adrian Willard. He works in a traditional old-school style using simple, bold lines and just 3 or 4 colors in his tattoos. He explains the sugar-skull design for the watch face, "skulls have always been a very popular subject in tattooing, a part of the rebel culture that it once represented. These days tattooing is quite mainstream but the skull remains the classic image. The sugar skull comes from a the Mexican Day of the Dead festival. Sugar skulls are gifts that can be given to both the living and the dead." See the Mr. Jones Last Laugh watch in motion in a time-lapse video and buy it at Watchismo.com.
