    Wow it really looks nice.


    I actually prefer the way minute markers are skewed in the Mondaine watch. And yes, this looks even more like the Apple clock.

    Do licensing deals of other people's designs ever cross Samescum's mind?

    Obviously Apple cares about the minute details of the UI.

    Yeah, that watch looks damn tasty. Looks like they're going for around $200. I guess I'll be sticking with my Pulsar solar watch for another ten years (got it ten years ago for $5 via an Overstock.com price mistake).

    I think we've been here before. Somebody check the minutes.

    Some pretty nice ones... reasonable prices too.


    Amazon also has them...and the prices are not too high.

    Indeed.  I was about to comment that Apple's version was clearly superior to the SBB one, but this "new" SBB design is actually a bit better than Apple's IMO.  Maybe now they have an agreement, they can spruce it up a bit without worrying about infringement.

    Oh yeah, it is covered since Apple licensed it so Sammy can copy from Apple.

    I wish the iPhone version of Clock had this clock face.  Maybe in a future update the iPad and iPhone clock apps will "sync"

    These do look really cool.  


    If it made any kind of sense to even wear one of these "watch" things anymore, this is the one I'd get.  


    Sadly, watches are about as relevant as moustache wax and spats at this point.

    Not at all surprised to see them spring it on Apple after the product shipped. They were obviously already on the watch, geared up to file suit. It was about time I suppose.


     


    EDIT:  At least the Swiss weren't seeing red over this, agreeing to hand over a license to Apple. That much is crystal clear.

    EDIT: Gotta hand it to them tho. At least the Swiss weren't seeing red over this, agreeing to hand over a license to Apple. That much is crystal clear.
