The Water Watch Returns

At least once a year I get a craving for a men's watch, big and bulky hanging off my wrist. Someday I'll spend thousands on a fancy dive watch that can be seen from down the block. But in the meantime, check out Fossil's reissue designs of their special edition, circa 1989 Water Watch:

Pretty much unisex in design. For me, that pink with the chunky chain will do nicely. Inspired by the lava lamp, the Fossil Water Watch has a sealed double crystal capsule that keeps the liquid inside. And it's got loose gears, hands and screws that float atop the dial, woooo! Freaky! Love it for $85. Release date is this Sunday the 22nd so you can get in on 34th Street then.
