Vulcania Steampunk Watch By Fabrice Gonet

Just when you think there can't be any new watch designs, one shows up. Fabrice Gonet designed the Vulcania -- not after Spock -- but after vulcanized tires as a steampunk homage. Hours are on the wheel, minutes on the dial, day in a small window. And all the mechanics are visible through the sapphire glass windows.

The watch is also an ultra limited edition timepiece as only 11 watches will be made in totaled. I'm sure many people will "ooh" and "ahh" when it is unveiled in Switzerland at the Salon International de la Haute.

Implications - Opportunities exist in the marketplace for those businesses that capitalize on the transparent design trend.
