Watchismo's showing some very cool automatic mechanical timepieces from Nixon Watches. The Swiss made Nixon Automatic II watch is an upgrade to one of their first mechanical classics, now with an improved design and more attitude: "Auto F*king Matic" is right on the caseback. Seen from the rear sapphire crystal porthole. Pre-order them at Watchismo.com.

The Nixon Mellor Automatic watch expresses itself through cool mid-century minimalism. Perfected with a lack of detail, this mechanical machine is simultaneously simple and complex. The dial and integrated lugs conceal the capsulated mechanics lying within. Both of these collections are available now at Watchismo in their Nixon Watch collection.

Watchismo has two new limited edition timepieces in its collection. Tsovet watches just launched their first SVT-AT76 Swiss Automatic in aeronautic-grade black stainless steel, and only 25 will ever be produced. It's powered by the ETA 2824 caliber, one the most trusted Swiss movements ever made, which can be seen through a sapphire portal. Ingersoll watches's Dual Time Orbital Automatic has an unusual mechanism: see that mess of mechanics at the bottom of the dial? That entire component is the hour hand. The balance wheel and the rest rotates to indicate the hours, in unison with the minutes displayed just above it. Both of these watches are endangered species, and once they sell out, that's the end of the line. See them both at Watchismo.com

CES 2011: Bluetooth wristwatch runs for two years without a charge

casio.jpeg Even though it includes Bluetooth to relay your telephone's nagging messages to a point slightly closer to your immediate attention, Casio's prototype watch promises two-year battery life. The problem? No phones yet exist that are compatible with the low-power Bluetooth mode it uses.

Just look at the color of this watch

Technically, it's a leather wristwatch
