Watch Out G-Shock, Nooka's Coming Through

I'm sure everyone's aware of the trend, or fad of the infamous G-Shock Watch, but I found a watch that I though was pri-tee-darn cool! Nooka watches are a tad bit more expensive, but they are very unique to say the least. I think I almost know how to tell time on the watch, but I'm sure it'll come with some directions (for each collection has a different, yet innovative way to tell the time).

What is Nooka? Nooka is the brainchild of artist and designer, Matthew Waldman. In 1997, Matthew had a flash-back to a first grade math class while staring at a large wall clock in a London hotel and was struck by how few options there were for time display. He then sketched his ideas for potential designs on a napkin and brought them back to New York. After working on the designs, he submitted them to his legal team, and indeed, they were unique enough to patent!


What's with the name? Nooka is a contraction of "New Yorker" as pronounced with a native New York accent. Nooka is a the first part of "New York" and the last part of "Osaka" expressing a global aesthetic.


The linear and graphic representation of time with Nooka timepieces presents a more intuitive way to view time. The visual mass increases as time passes, giving weight to an ephemeral and abstract concept - creating a universal visual language.

Rather than just style the appearance of an object, Nooka’s reconceptualization is based on analytic and artistic underpinnings that incorporate trends in fashion and science. The approach is beyond any material product – it is a concept, a method, a mindstyleTM.

Beyond international style, the search for a universal language is the common theme that all nooka products are conceptually based, whether a timepiece, fashion, or something unexpected.
Nooka timepieces are renowned for their ingenuity and design, as well as the quality of the materials we use. By using fine diamonds and genuine crocodile bands with a digital display, or bold, ambitious colors to complement your sneaker collection, our goal is to Nooka-fy the way you use timepiece accessories.


In 2009, we will embark upon the next stage of our brand development with the introduction of Nooka mindstyleTM accessories for home and body. Now that we've changed the way you think about time, we will change the way you think about other objects in our goal to create a universal language.
