As Hurricane Sandy engulfs the Eastern United States, many are contemplating the way they should spend their time indoors while waiting out the storm. This got me thinking about stormy times — which brings us to today’s post. Herein we bring you a few watches related to storms – and one that even gives you something to do while waiting it out.
Artya, a brand we love for its innovative artistic renditions, has a collection of timepieces whose cases it strikes with lightning (or the electric voltage the equivalent thereof) to create its cases. The “coup de foudre” collection features engraved and moulded cases that are struck by high voltage and undergo thermal combustion – yielding a dramatic look. The cases are subjected to 100,000 volts all the way to 1 million volts depending on the one-of-a-kind version being created.
On a totally different scale, if you are waiting out the storm behind closed doors and need a bottle of soda (or other beverage), you don’t need to search around for the bottle opener if you own a Dark and Stormy watch made by Happy Hour Timepieces. The Dark and Stormy watch features a patented bottle-opener on the strap’s buckle. It retails for a simple $69.95.
