Modern watches have made life easier for us, whether it be integrating alarms, mp3 players, games, and even cell phones. Or quite simply, having a user-friendly interface to read the time a lot faster and easier. But some brands just love to go against the flow.
One man’s trash is another’s treasure. That phrase has never been more true then in the case of these gorgeous watches by Alchemist.

This Mechanical LED Watch by Watch Design is a boatload of bells and whistles, all wrapped up in a sleek sophisticated style. The piece features a handmade Lithopane dial: a piece of carved art that becomes 3D when backlit. Add the LED backlight to this to ensure the effect (and be handy at night!), then add a handmade leather strap, and it’s hot enough to stand on its own as a jewelry piece. Check out this and other Watch Design products in the Lost At E Minor store.

What any MPC-lover needs. A friend and collaborator, Ryan Hemsworth, had recently seen me perform for the first time – I use an MPC2000 live – so when he came across this amazing little timekeeper, he knew that it belonged on my wrist. Santa? I’ve been a really good girl!
