    If anybody else nerds out on industrial design, Seiko has decided to re-issue the collection of watches that Giorgetto Giugiaro designed for Alien. Giugiaro may be the single greatest futurist car designer of our time, having designed such classics as The Ferrari 250 GT Short Wheelbase, The DeLorean DMC 12, the Lotus Esprit, the mk I VW Golf, Passat, Jetta, and Scirocco, The Yugo, the Subaru SVX, Lancia Delta, and any number of other cars as well as some beretta firearms and quite a few classic Nikon SLR camera bodies. He also did these rad watches for Seiko for everyone to wear in Alien, and you can get the reissues for a fairly reasonable price.

    he just retired this year from Italdesign Giugiaro, which is the styling house he started after leaving Ghia in the 60’s. Italdesign just got bought out by the VW/Audi group as well, which doesn’t bode well for them given the current political situation with VW and their emissions trickery it has been revealed they were getting up to. Been a bad couple years for the standalone auto styling house.
