Good ideas with bad execution, or good execution of what should be bad ideas - an analysis of inferior, off-beat or malfunctioning products, and how other people's failures can help us design better stuff.

I can’t believe someone makes… Gunship watches

Thanks to Slashgear for highlighting the new Nixon range of watches. The models, in gunship grey, comprise the 51-30 Chromo Gunship, the Sentry Gunship, the Banks Gunship, and the Player Gunship.

But wait, there’s more. The idea is that – with the passing of time, and the chipping of the paint – gradually the black chassis underneath will be revealed.

According to the makers:


Uniquely applied finish is designed to wear increasingly with age, resulting in a piece who’s scars reveal a hidden character all its own.

You pay a premium for this, however. As Slashgear points out, the Gunship 51-30 Chrono is $500, the Sentry is $190, the Banks Gunship  is $375, and the Player Gunship is $225…

In good ICBSM tradition, they are probably all sold out.
