The Ikepod Strikes Back

Post by AtomicTom » Tue Sep 18, 2018 11:45 am

Does everyone remember Ikepod watches from the early 90's?

Today they are back with the Hemipode-like Duopod, and Chronopod
collections. With 42mm stainless steel cases on the Duopod which
feel like 39mm because of the UFO design. Along with 44mm cases
on the Chronopod that feel like 41mm also.

You also have dials in silver, blue, black, and more with 50 meter
water resistance, mineral crystals, and quartz Miyota movements.

Some pictures for you...

Looks like a watch that Millenials would like...if they wore watches.

Like that shade of blue— kind of cool, but not sure I would buy one.

Definitely have that 90's feel guys, but love how the cases actually take
you back even a few decades before that with the overall case design. :excited: :thumbsup:

Kind of reminded me of watches like these a little...

I really like this one. I know it does not make much sense, but I think it is a phenomenal design. If the QC is good, and the prototypes look extremely well finished, I think the end product us going to be a pleasant surprise.
