Remember that aggravating 8-bit pixeled watch icon that used to replace your mouse cursor whenever your Apple computer was ‘taking time’ to finish a task? Displaying a wristwatch to show your computer was busy always felt like an odd metaphor – likewise for the sand clock icon on Microsoft computers – yet once it was replaced by the animated rainbow warp, people immediately missed it. Luckily for all you pixel-nostalgics out there, the icon watch now boomeranged into the physical world. To be worn as a wrist clock for 8-bit retro time telling. Get yours and keep this lost symbol of the pixel era alive. Pass it on to your children! To order your Icon Watch, please visit our store. The Icon watch is made of an ABS and stainless steel body with a polyurethane band. Designed by & Design. Size: Case: 1.25h x 1.25"w; Band: .75"w.

  • Honestly, we haven't checked whether the producers of the 8-bit icon watch pay any revenue for the use of the Apple icon – my guess is they don't. Anyhow, we are hoping Susan Kare will interpret the icon watch as an homage to her original icon design for the Mac OS. That's what it is. Anticipating your followup question: I have no idea whether Apple ever paid Swiss watchmakers for the use of the watch metaphor in their OS.

    Posted on

  • Does Susan Kare get a cut? ;)

    Posted on

  • @Jak Sprat: As written at the bottom of the post, the 8-bit Icon Watch is designed by the good people of '& Design'. Shipping is indeed worldwide and the price is the lowest price on the web (We are in it for the savior of the 8-bit icon watch in physical space).

    Posted on

  • So, who ACTUALLY makes the watch and do you guys ship to the states?
