Tokyoflash Kisai Zone: A Hex Face in a Round Hole

Modern Japanese digital watches are definitely an acquired taste, but once you decipher how to read the time, you end up with a functional watch. This new watch from Tokyoflash doesn’t encrypt the time, so you won’t have to take a minute each time you consult it. Once you understand the display, it’s very easy to read.

Constellations are pretty awesome to look at, that is if you’re not living in a big city. Once you get out of urban areas, you can see plenty of them in the clear night sky. This new concept watch attempts to put a constellation on your wrist, so you can see one even if you live downtown.

Tokyoflash Sci-Fi Concept Watch: The Time is the Future

I like to know the exact time, since most of the time I’m either running late or trying to get somewhere at a specific time. However, that doesn’t mean that I always need to know the time, right down to the millisecond. Despite its minimal display this futuristic watch will tell time in minute intervals, which should be enough for most of us.

Tokyoflash Kisai Stencil Watch Tells Time in Negative Space

This has to be one of the more interesting recent designs from Tokyoflash – I think I might actually get this one! The Kisai Stencil showcases the time in an intuitive fashion, thanks to the custom digits that are displayed. Unlike some of their other watches, a glance is enough to know the exact time.

Tokyoflash Kisai Optical Illusion LCD Watch: Now You See It Now You Don’t

One of the biggest complaints that I’ve had with some of these Japanese watches is that you always have to push a button to check the time. Since Tokyoflash started working with more LCD displays, instead of only using LEDs, this problem has been somewhat solved – assuming you can make out the time. Their latest watch, the Kisai Optical Illusion, plays with diagonal lines to make you see the time.

Tokyoflash Kisai Seven: For All You TRON Fanatics

Tokyoflash’s watches are well-known from having somewhat obtuse ways of displaying the time. The newly launched Kisai Seven incorporates two pulsating LED rings to show the time. Initially, the display looks confusing, but once you take a closer look, anyone who can tell the time on an analog clock will have no problems with this one.
