Do you remember back in the day, when the pixeled watch icon would take over your mouse cursor on your Apple Macintosh computer? Well, if you don't, then this 8-bit Icon Watch will surely jog your memory.

The simple, yet geeky time teller is a retro wristwatch that incorporates a clumsy metaphor into its design.

Implications - Pixelated watches have come about due to a revived fascination with old school Nintendo games as well as an appreciation for geek culture. Businesses can use this retro revival as a tool to create and advertise their products. Making being a geek cool is a popular theme that is already being explored by different brands.
