Nooka Watch Giveaway: We Have a Winner!

New, 2 comments

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Last week, we offered up a Nooka watch to the reader who sent in the best haiku. The contest was fraught with tension; a debate about proper haiku meter even broke out in the comments section. But after much close reading, we've picked a winner. Our favorite:

Can't buy on my wage
Timepiece of the Golden Age
Nooka, c'est la rage.
While we can only have one winner, we'd like to note that Racked readers are really, really good at writing haiku about fashion. It was a tough choice, you guys. We're definitely going to have to do this again soon.

1. I love their sleek looks
Colorful, stylish, unique
Nooka-fy me now!

2. Nooka nukes the sky
Color spectrum for my eye
To mundane: goodbye.

3. Nooka counts the dots
Time goes by, my body rots
Watch ne'er been so hot.

4. at first glance you ask:
what the eff is going on?
This is so awesome

5. Rubber orange watch
Will brighten me when I'm sad
Or I'll eBay it

6. Rubik's-colored dreams
under The Gates of New York
daylight reappears

7. Waldman, Nooka, thanks.
You bring infinity 'round,
And break timepiece ground.

8. Cheeky companion
Gives polyurethane hugs
Embrace the present

9. zub zing zanzob zoo
tock fall snow to tick graph rain
tell smile time today

10. What's the effin' time?
Can't tell beyond the ugly
Green hides the obscure.

11. A watch so orange
It makes me feel so witty
Nooka come to me

12. Nooka design is
a secret dotted language
of magic numbers

13. Mysterious time
Hidden behind Nooka's charm
Smiles a dotted line

14. Morning paper's gone
Orange crush, you set the sun
Ripe tomato time
