Would you wear… the Zihotch Retro Phone Watch?

Phone_watch

Like gimmicky gadgets/fashion accessories? Well, the Zihotch Retro Phone watch is a bit of both – rather than just looking at it to find out the time, you have to dial ‘117’ on the rotarly dial, and the watch will tell you the time via the built-in speaker. Dial the wrong number and it’ll just tell you it’s not in service. These are $79.99 from Audiocubes – cute and quirky, do you think, or just too gimmicky for words?

    Are we trying to keep the time a secret now? What a ridiculous concept. No, I wouldn’t wear this.

    I would, but not for 80 bucks; maybe for 10.

    Not for that much money, but it’s pretty cool if it were around $20

    It seems a bit of a pointless invention – I guess if you were blind it may be useful. Everyone else, surely they can tell the time in the good old fashioned way?

    I would definitely wear that. I’m all about the old phones and this is a great conversation piece. 80 is a bit expensive though.

    It would amuse me no end… it would make me happy every time I checked it! Although, it would make checking your watch on the sly impossible.

    I like to be able to look at my watch and see what the time is with minimal fuss. I wouldn’t want to be dialing numbers…
