Tokyoflash Kisai Kaidoku LCD Watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on July 6th, 2011

Tokyoflash’s latest watch design uses words to tell the time. It is called the Kisai Kaidoku. No numbers here. Just a watch that Scrabble fans and vocabulary teachers will appreciate.

So how do you tell the time with words? Just read the flashing words and you will know what time it is. The date can be read in the same way by pressing the lower button. I prefer good old numbers myself, but it’s a neat watch.

Tokyoflash Kisai Console watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on January 12th, 2011

Tokyoflash has unveiled the Kisai Console watch, which looks pretty darn cool. This futuristic watch will cost you $200.64. As usual, you might have a hard time actually reading the time on this watch though. Hopefully it gets easier once you know how.

The hours are displayed on the numbers on the top half, while the minutes are shown on the middle and lower section. Who cares. You buy these watches because they look great, not because you want the time.

Tokyoflash Kisai RPM watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on November 27th, 2010

Tokyoflash has released its latest watch design, the Kisai RPM. This is the first concept to become a reality from the Tokyoflash Design Studio Blog and it is based on an idea from a Tokyoflash fan from the UK, James Fursedon.

The Tokyoflash Kisai RPM is easy to read, unlike some of their watches. The hours are shown on the inner ring, while five minute intervals are shown on the outer ring. Four single minutes are positioned at the top of the display along side the AM/PM indicator. Lights showing the current time will flash for several seconds to make it easier to read.

Tokyoflash Kisai Wasted watch

The Kisai Wasted is a new watch from the folks over at Tokyoflash. It’s available in black or white and sports a streamlined plastic case and a strap finished in gloss with matte detail. This one was specially designed to fit most wrists perfectly, no matter the size.

The smooth translucent lens allows you to see the somewhat spooky looking layout of the time right under it. A touch of the button initiates the twisted display and the current time will flash for a short time. Hours are shown on the outside in the same position as numbers on a clock, groups of five minutes on the inside and single minutes in the center from bottom to top.

Kisai Tenmetsu Tokyoflash watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on December 9th, 2008

Kisai Tenmetsu Tokyoflash watchTenmetsu is the latest addition to the brand new line of Kisai timepieces from Japanese watch importer Tokyoflash. The idea behind this one is that with three LEDs positioned beneath each lens, you’ll get a transition between LED colors, creating an unusual look. And it does. As usual Tokyoflash comes up with a unique design.

This one is nice and light weight because it’s made from aluminum. You can get one in either silver or black. So how do you read the time on this one? The time and date are shown in sequence by color. Red LEDs indicate 15 units, amber LEDs indicate 5 units and green LEDs indicate 1 unit, a combination of which present hours, minutes, months and date. Still confused? Me too.
