Retrofone wristwatch - Neo-Retro on the move
By James Grahame
The 7800 Yen ($67) Retrofone is a clever design riff reminiscent of an old rotary dial telephone. Instead of hands, it offers a couple of rotating discs with circular cutouts that highlight the hours and minutes. Alas, there's no disc for seconds and -- unforgivably -- the band is made from icky-sweaty-smelly Polyurethane rubber with a SkinPincher 1000 metal clasp. It weighs a mere 50g, the face measures 32 mm and the warranty lasts 365.25 days.
