Woz Watch?

Asked by aansuzek1 (33points) July 17th, 2008

Does anyone know the name of the watch Steve Wozniak wears? Or better yet, a link to an online store where I can buy one?

I believe what you are talking about is his Nixie Tube Watch.
But if I were you, I’d go for something even more unique.
If you insist, here’s a youtube video the watch in action.

From my more personal observation, Mr. W. is one that likes to draw attention to himself. The first cell phone that I ever saw, was when he walked into a Silicon Valley Marie Callender’s. He came in with a group of 3 or 4 other people for lunch and sat in one of those semi-circular booths that faced outward. He took the spot in the center middle, placed his phone standing on end so no one could miss it and proceeded to receive calls on it. For those of you not familiar with the pioneer cell phones, they were the size of military field phones and cost nearly 4 grand. link

He spent nearly the entire meal on the phone, at a time when going out to lunch, still meant having conversation with your guests.

Here’s a video of him talking about that watch.

The article mentions a second watch as well, but he didn’t mention it in the video.

The first watch he talks about in that video is the binary watch

Your right, rockstar, had a brain freeze for a second, and the two watches melded together. My bf in college built a binary clock, so I know what you are talking about. I’m one of the few women that I know that can “read’ ships bells and binary clocks.

Thanks for the head’s up.
