Speedometer watch goes from 0 to 60 in 60 minutes

The Max Speed Speedometer Watch doesn't have a clutch or gear shifter, but it's still a perfect accessory for car-obsessed geeks.

I'm addicted to the original British "Top Gear" car show. As much as I love to watch them run a Bugatti Veyron down an airplane runway, though, I know I'll never get within spitting distance of a blazing fast car like that.

With a Max Speed Speedometer Car Watch from Gadgets and Gear, I could at least pretend I'm sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle with nifty light-up gauges.

The LED display glows with blue lights while red needles track the time.

The watch also sports smaller day-of-the-week and a.m./p.m. gauges. In the pantheon of geek watches, it's no DIP-Switch or wrist-mounted iPod Nano , but it is a perfect fit for all the gearheads out there.

At $79.95, the Speedometer watch costs more than a dollar a minute. You'll have to provide your own engine revving noises. Vrooom! Vrooom!
