Tokyoflash Kisai Broke Watch Looks Like Shards of Broken Glass
April 27th, 2010
I don’t know whether I love it or hate it, but this is a really distinctive watch, made by those nutty watchmakers over at Tokyoflash.
Unlike other recent Tokyoflash designs, this isn’t a concept, and you can actually buy it. The face of the watch looks like it’s broken, which I guess is why it’s called the Kisai Broke. It’s also USB rechargeable, which is kind of a cool idea. I hate bringing my watches to get their batteries replaced, since the seal rarely stays in place, meaning that they lose their water proofing ability. Of course, the fact that you need to recharge this watch probably means it uses a lot of battery when illuminated.
Naturally, since it’s a Tokyoflash design, it’s not going to be easy to tell the time. What I love is that they actually say that this digital LED clock is “a new way to read time that’s almost like a regular clock.” Yeah, right.
The Kisai Broke is available for $168 (USD) over at Tokyoflash now.
