A friend once told me that one day we will define the 20th century (and the first part of the 21st too, apparently) as the century we still had to wait for our computers.

What did we look at while we waited for our computers? The watch icon, ofcourse. An icon so recognizable it made the leap from the virtual world to physical world and is now for sale in the prestigious MoMA in New York for only $75.00.

With a nod to the era of 8-bit computer graphics, the face of this watch is shaped like a computer icon. Made of an ABS and stainless steel body with a polyurethane band.
