Yup, in japanese Q=9. Hence Haruki Murakami's new book, 1Q84.

That said, I'll be curious to see if these ever become anything in US...available, collectible, etc. Certainly different.

Oh, well that LX watch is a disappointment. I expected it to be gold and generally the same as the camera, not just with a picture inside. The Q watch is much better in that regard, pretty original.

Pretty cool, if slightly nerdy watch and that's even though I am not a fan of all this non-related merchandise. Perfect for a quick Christmas competition - Adam ought to be busy sourcing a handfull now!

I bought one of these, it cost me about $20 including shipping. For the price its okay. My little covey of three LXs feel its a little gaudy,though.

LOL

I skimed trough the OP and my first impression is that Pentax came up with a watch that can take digital pics ... and you can mount Q lenses on it.
obviously I went "WHHHAAAAATTT!!! Must have!". But then I realized that the next item was a calendar .

Hmmmm ... that would be something ...
Pentax/Ricoh if you read this and think of doing the idea ... I expect 10% out of each sale you have
.

You know what would be cool? If the watch had a wireless remote or wireless memory. That would be really great, so the watch would actually be a watch, but also a photo accessory.

There are a couple of Android watches on the market (just search "smartphone watch"), and Canon already supports a smartphone app for their 6D and video cams, so you can probably do this already (if you have a 6D or M52 videocam).

in Japanese, the Q reads Kyu, which = 9.
Just a little bit trivia =)

it would be great if the watch can remote pentax camera
just a watch with k mount isn't really special, could have been more functional

See, that explains why they went Q10 for the next model, because 9-10 sounds fun, and 9-2 sounds strange.
