Sony seems to be timing the launch of a new smartwatch for next week.
A series of tweets posted by the company's Xperia account have laid a trail of breadcrumbs pointing to the possible debut of a new watch at the Mobile Asia Expo 2013 trade show, which runs from June 26 to 28.
The latest tweet, posted Friday, offers the most obvious clue, saying "Tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock" and displaying a photo of Sony's current smartwatch, which launched in April 2012.

A previous tweet posted an image of a survey claiming that one-third of smartphone owners want a smartwatch. Another tweet touted that Sony launched the first "smart" watch in 2007. And still another said: "Wearable tech is in our DNA. Remember WALKMAN, now...?"
All of the tweets carry hashtags of #itstime and #MAE13 (which stands for Mobile Asia Expo 2013).
The smartphone arena has gotten more crowded since Sony entered the race last year. The company may be looking to outrival its rivals with an all-new watch springing up a host of new features.
