Unlike the watches that display the time in a pattern of colored lights, the 4-Bit Chrono UTC Watch from the Cadence Watch Co. looks like a typical analog watch with date and chronograph functions. The geekery is subtle in this one: the hour markers are displayed in 4-bit code with the least significant bit to the outside of the watch, and the red hand marks the UTC time. The watch has a 42mm-diameter stainless steel case with a leather band. The quartz movement is made in Japan, and the watch is water -resistant to 5ATM. The watch will be released soon, but you can pre-order it for $195, which is a 40% savings.
