Tokyoflash Kisai Kaidoku: Telling Time with Text


This unique watch from Tokyoflash tells time with words instead of numbers or hands. The always-on LCD watch was originally submitted by a 15-year old Canadian and Tokyoflash made it into reality. Tynan Mayhew submitted this design last year and it’s now available for all, through Tokyoflash’s online store.

Like some of the more recent Tokyoflash designs, this watch uses an LCD so that the display is always on, instead of fading from view and necessitating the push of a button.

The display looks cool, but I would have preferred for only the words to be shown and the other become dark instead of the current time blinking and all of the other words continuing to display.


It’s available in a few different color combinations, from black with blue LCD to purple or green LCD with a white strap. You can buy it for an introductory price of $119 (USD) over at Tokyoflash. The price goes up by $20 in 2 days.
