What’s the time, Mr. Anderson?: The Division Furtive

Division Furtive watch

I. Want. One.

Every time I look at it, it’s all I seem to think about.

The Type 50 Division Furtive

The Type 50 Division Furtive

This incredibly stylish watch is called the Division Furtive Type 50.  There are two versions currently available—the most recent, the Type 50 Limited Edition, was funded on Kickstarter. For collectors and genre-junkies, a quick visit to the DF page will be time well-spent.

The Type 50 champions a sleek, minimalist corporate look, with a cyberpunk aesthetic. Its clean and compact design sets it apart from the more gritty, retro-futuristic cobbled-together look that’s also enjoyed some popularity. It wouldn’t be difficult to imagine the Type 50 on the wrist of a motorbike-riding courier weaving through traffic on a derelict highway or a deck-jockey taunting some malevolent AI.

One of the cooler, more unusual features enables you to set the time using light (from your smartphone or computer screen).  There’s an app for that!

There’s more…

  • Flashlight
  • Day (units on top cursor and tens on bottom cursor)
  • AM/PM (AM or PM on bottom cursor and current hour on top cursor)
  • Exact minutes (units on top cursor and tens on bottom cursor)
  • Day of the week
  • Triple time zone (home, travel east and west)
  • Phase of the moon
  • Chronometer
  • Battery life indicator


You can pre-order both the Type 50 for $295 CAD (£165) and the Type 50X below for $325 CAD (£180) on the official website. The older models (i.e the Type 46 and Type 40) are both sold out.

So, this is on my Christmas list.  How about yours?

Zymepunk was drawn into the world of cyberpunk by Deus Ex and Blade Runner and now looks both back and forwards in time for anything that may come close to those masterpieces.
  1. If I had a nickel for every watch I came across that I want, I could afford one of them 🙂

  2. Nice one. Looks much better than those silly “smart watches”

  3. I met the gent that makes these back in November. He was there with his watches as part of an art bazaar in Montreal hosted by the Center of Art and Technology. Fantastic watches!

  4. I hate my life but at least this makes it beraable.
