A video watch you can take to a formal

Style blends old and new, thankfully.

Vavolo

Until we saw this watch, we were almost convinced that all personal timepieces were headed toward the infuriating trend of unreadability . But Chip Chick has restored our faith in human nature by posting an item on a new OLED watch that not only has an analog-style face (gasp) but even some high-tech features to boot.

Made by Vavolo, a Chinese company that has shown a penchant for products with multiple uses , this timepiece can also show video, play MP3s and even display e-book pages, though the last feature may be a bit tricky on its 1.5-inch screen. It can also obviate the need to carry a silly or expensive USB drive, storing up to 2GB of data.

And with the leather band, it looks a lot swankier than most other Dick Tracy watches we've seen. Unless, of course, the iPhone morphs into a one .
