While checking out the latest in wrist apparel I came across one of the most exclusive accessory events in the world. The Salon International De La Haute Horlogerie in Geneva is the premier place where luxury watch brads display their latest creations in the world. I got to spot the latest trend in gold tones and hues (…and if you’re thinking rose gold is still haute to trot – then you’re sooo last season…) Take a gander at what W Magazine boasts as the top timepieces for 2012 and let us know if these are lust-worthy or just a bust.

Watchmakers Ziiiro have launched their two latest models, the Gravity and the Mercury, both of which share one distinctly futuristic touch: their hands have been replaced by glowing concentric circles. The watches, which look like some pie in the sky concept but are actually available for preorder right now, have a fat circle to indicate the hour and a thin one to indicate the minute. If you’re looking for seconds, well, you’re just asking too much. If you’re still not sure how you feel about the new geometric time-telling scheme, you can practice with their similarly styled app.

We knew this would happen soon enough…the iPod Nano Watch (compliments of HEX)
These new funky-color silicone bands from Hex actually make Apple’s iPod look like a cutesy-retro timepiece (remember the calculator watch?).
The $24.95 Hex band has a pop-in design which incorporates the Nano into the watch. It has integrated control buttons and comes in 9 colors. It’s cute, it’s retro, it’s functional and Gadgetnistas – IT’S FOR YOU
Inspired by the Fresh Prince of Bel Air, himself…Mr. Will Smith! These are the funkiest watches this side of the DJ booth! I’m normally not into novelty watches like these but – these watches were too dope to pass up!
Flud Turntable watch with a wide linked stainless steel strap. Topped with a rectangular case with 3 hands turning the beat around on the turntable-style face.
* Band: approx 9″l, 1″w; Case: 2″w
* Alloy, stainless steel
(He’s the DJ….I’m the Rapper…..Throwback DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince….)
