Unusual and Unique Men's Watches

Weird Ape travels the world to find unique and unusual watches that are full of character and designed to be a bold fashion statement as much as they are precision timepieces.

These interesting and intriguing pieces are sure to get people talking for all the right reasons and perhaps one of their most striking features is the £35.00 price tag.

Whether it’s the steampunk style mechanical skeleton watches from Excelsior, Abbrecci and Mirtello, the futuristic designs of Photon or the art nouveaux styles of Piscara all the watches in Weird Ape’s collection have been hand-picked because they’re a little bit different – in a good way.

Watchmaking has come on leaps and bounds in the last few decades and now there are more than two ways to tell the time. As well as the standard analogue first, second and third hands, or the age old numerical digital display, you will find watches that use unique and unusual techniques to show you the time using creatively placed LED lights in all manner of configurations.

With so many eye-catching and unusual men’s watches in Weird Ape’s collection it can be difficult to decide which one to choose. Luckily, when they are priced at just £35.00 each, you can afford to start a collection of your own.

Skeleton Watches

Skeleton watches refer to unique and unusual watches where the mechanical inner workings of the watch are exposed, allowing the wearer to see the cogs and springs whirring as they bring life to the timepiece.

This eye catching feature gives a mesmerising effect that is sure to capture the attention of friends, family and passers by, who won’t be able to take their eyes off your Weird Ape watch.

All the men’s and women’s skeleton watches in Weird Ape’s collection are expertly crafted with hand-made mechanisms. This not only means that they are a pleasure to look at but also that they do not require batteries. All can be hand wound to ensure they keep perfect time.

We recommend that they are wound at least once every 48 hours and that you try to establish a routine, winding them at the same time every day to ensure maximum precision.

Some also feature a ‘kinetic’ mechanism, which means that they are powered by your movement and will not require winding as long as you are moving. If you like to change up your watches and go for an extended period of time without wearing your kinetic watch, you can still wind it up to set it going again.

Our skeleton watches come in a variety of beautiful styles for both men and women and are priced from £25.00.

Mechanical Watches

Weird Ape has a thing for mechanical watches. There’s something about the precision crafted, hand-wound mechanisms that make them extremely appealing, especially when you can see the springs and cogs working inside the watch, as the is the case with our skeleton mechanical watches.

From the dawn of time (or at least the 1500s when the very first watch was invented) man has always had a love for mechanical watches. And although there have been improvements in the intervening 600 years, the basic mechanisms have remained largely unchanged thanks to their incredible levels of craftsmanship and traditional principles.

Because of the way the mechanisms are made all the men’s and women’s mechanical watches in Weird Ape’s collection are powered without the use of batteries. Instead they are powered by being hand wound or in the case of the kinetic versions, through your movements.

We recommend that they are wound at least once every 48 hours and that you try to establish a routine, winding them at the same time each day to ensure maximum precision. The kinetic mechanical watches only need winding if they haven’t been worn for a few days.

Our mechanical wristwatches and pocket watches come in a variety of unique styles for men and women and all are priced from just £25.00.

Steampunk Watches

Weird Ape has noticed an unusual new trend taking the world by storm in recent years. This is, of course, Steampunk. It is a look that incorporates elements of Victorian design and mixes it with futuristic and post apocalyptic aesthetics.

If you’re into steampunk, one thing is for certain – you need the perfect timepiece to complete your look.

Weird Ape has amassed a collection of weird and wonderful steampunk watches that are embodied by their intricate and expertly crafted pattern work, and exposed moving mechanisms. We have a range of steampunk wristwatches as well as a variety of beautiful and unusual pocket watches.

Whether you’re a fanatical steampunk aficionado, you’re just getting into the scene or even if you’re just going to a steampunk themed fancy dress party, Weird Ape’s watches will give you the authentic look to match your goggles, ray guns and whatever other weird and wonderful accessories you decide to wear.

As with any of the men’s and women’s watches in Weird Ape’s collection, prices range from £25 to just £35, so if collecting steampunk watches is your thing, you can afford to take your pick from across our online store.
