Go Back To The Future With DMC Watches

Back To The Future fans rejoice! If you can’t get to a DeLorean and hit 88 MPH (141.6 KMH for us Australian folks) to go back in time, then you can use one of these DMC watches to keep (up with) time!

Of course, there was only ever going to be one inspiration for these watches, the original (and damn cool) DMC-12 sports car. Check out some of the DMC watches (below) from their Alpha, Dream and 1981 collections.

Oh yeah, for a limited time, you can get 10% OFF any DMC watch purchase by using the coupon code ‘WELCOME19’! What are you waiting for, get that flux capacitor going and grab your very own DeLorean time machine!

The Amazing Homemade Pong Watch

This amazing Pong watch is truly homemade. The creator, John Maushammer, even made the casing and fabricated the board – watch the video to see the project in progress.

Maushammer says: ‘I succeeded in compressing all the electronics for this watch in to a 10mm-thick case. The 96×64 OLED display runs continuously – unlike older LED watches, there is no need to press a button to see the time. Battery life is 25 hours, so recharging is done every night.

And to top it off – Maushammer has made a second version which plays Asteroids controlled with a tilt sensor: ‘Usually, the computer plays automatically & it keeps time. But, it also has a tilt-sensor so you can aim the ship by moving your wrist around.’

Before you ask, sadly it doesn’t look like either of these watches are available to buy – but we can hope. It’s lucky there are plenty of other retrogaming watches to keep us occupied in the meantime!
