Sufficient to say we’ve seen our share of iPhone docking station alarm clocks.  You probably have as well if you took a stroll around your local Brookstone (and by “stroll” we mean looked around while sitting in a massaging chair).  Though we’ve seen a bunch of them, we haven’t seen one that integrates the dock and iPhone in such a perfect way as this Alarm Dock from designer Jonas Damon does.  It’s that retro faux wood grain vibe mixed with the modern technology of your app machine.  The power supply gets routed from the back and by using the flip clock app, you can wake like you got transported back to the 70’s.  Then grab your iPhone and hit the road listening to some Zeppelin and Stones in your VW Bus.

Xeric watches have always been bold, unique and stylish, but their newest watch is absolutely otherworldly. Xeric teamed up with NASA to create watches for the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11. The dial features a star map of the constellations surrounding Trappist-1. The grill references the ISS cupola window to give you the sense of looking out into space. The dome crystal is Hesalite, a material originally developed by NASA in the ’60s. Time is displayed with planetary hour and minute hands and stars on the sweeping seconds hand. It’s like wearing space on your wrist.
