Here is a video of the UN Hour Striker in action. Recorded here is the actual sound and animation of the figure that appears to be striking a bell with the Canon EOS 5D Mark 2 (in high definition but resampled for blog viewing).
While I find the Freak design as innovative and exciting, I have not had the same reaction to many of the UN designs. However, the Hour Striker is both more conservative yet distinctly handsome on the wrist. With the platinum and black Onyx dial, the watch is quite literally - striking. Unfortunately, this watch cost SGD200,000 at retail list.
