Anyone who knows me know that I love anything pink. Throw some rhinestones in, and that's the icing on the cake. That's why it was love at first sight when I noticed the Phosphor Appear watch on the wrist of a stranger at CES. Seriously, a watch that uses Swarovski crystals to display the time? After seeing it in action, we put it to the test. I've had the Phosphor Appear for a couple of weeks now. Is the watch as good as I first thought? Read on for our full review.
The Phosphor Appear is a great looking watch, and a cool gadget to boot! We saw this one at CES, and had to get our hands on one as soon as we saw it. The Phosphor Appear is driven by Micro-Magnetic Mechanical Digital (M3D) technology, the Phosphor Appear watch utilizes miniature-sized rotors adorned with Swarovski crystals that revolve to reveal numerical or chronological information. Every minute, an electrical pulse generates an electromagnetic field that changes the position of the crystals on the face of the watch, which in turn, displays the passing time while producing a distinctive sound unique to the Phosphor Appear digital watch line. You can pick up the Phosphor Appear on Amazon. This video was recorded at CES 2012.

Phosphor has developed digital watches that are not only ergonomic but utilize E Ink in their displays. There are two modes, a standard numeric digital display and a graphic analog hour clock, and you can switch between them depending on your mood. The display autonomously switches between white-on-black to black-on-white time each passing minute. If you like your timepiece busy, the water-resistant watches run $175.00 to $195.00, depending on your choice of style.
