Azimuth is a watch manufacturer in Switzerland. They’ve announced their Mr. Roboto watch, the world’s first vintage tin robot concept timepiece. All those who have a love of all things robot, like myself, have collectively wet our pants.
The idea is that it’s based on those retro tin robots that old people grew up with. It’s a revival of those vintage tin robotic spacemen. The time is easy to read and the appearance is awesome. The left ‘eye’ is for the hour, the right ‘eye’ comes with GMT indication, the nose region joint with the mouth region are the seconds. It will be available from September 2008 with the international retail price of about $4,800 USD. Well, it’s out of my price range, but it’s one of the coolest watches I’ve ever seen.
