It's always interesting when something's made out of different materials than you've come to expect, like that car completely made out of wood, or stripper boobs made out of...boob. Treat your wrist to a similar surprise, from Ice Watch
Just now available in the 215, Belgium-based Ice's surprisingly affordable, uber-stylish analog timekeepers come in an often-neon rainbow of color combos across 14 distinct collections, all united by one thing: although they riff off classic high-end designs, they eschew metal almost entirely in favor super-lightweight plastic, which Slipknot better never do, or it's hello GWAR! Collections include the Classic, dishing a straightforward Rolex-aping, link-banded design in solid colorways ranging from black to stark white, plus a slew where everything's iced-out clear plastic save for the face and bezel, while black+silver/gold Chrono jobs add a triple-dial mechanism to the mix plus a little peek-window for the date -- funny, 'cause that's what you resort to using when you can't get one. Things get a little more ironically new-school with the 1844s, flaunting big bold numbers, six visible screws cranking the case down, and a thick rubber logo-bearing strap; meanwhile, the four-colorway (all-black, orange/clear, etc) Ocean Collection rocks a bisected silicon band, squared-off design, and a face jazzed up with lines making it look like it's plunging into ludicrous speed, so hopefully your watch closed all shops in the mall and canceled the three-ring circus
Every piece of Ice comes packaged in a collectible "Becubic" box that doubles as a coin bank and matches the watch's color/feel/finish -- though there's none with a stripper finish, because who's to say what color disappointment is.
