Tokyoflash Kisai Polygon LCD Watch: Telling Time with Triangles (and Hexagons)
November 27th, 2012
If you’ve followed Technabob for a while, you know that we’ve always enjoyed the cool and offbeat modern watch designs coming out of Tokyoflash Japan. The latest digital model to find its way from the watchmaker is no exception.
The new Kisai Polygon features an unusual display which uses a series of triangles and other polygons to indicate the current time. The triangles around the outer edge point to the current hour, while the next ring of triangles indicates 10 minute intervals of time. Then the large, hexagonal digit in the middle of the watch indicates individual minutes. It takes a minute to understand the display, but once you get used to it, it’s actually pretty straightforward. Plus, it’s definitely unique.
If you’re still confused, check out the video demo below, and it’ll make perfect sense:
The display of the watch is an LCD, which comes in a black, mirror, blue or pink color schemes. It’s also got EL backlighting for easy reading in the dark.
You can order the Kisai Polygon now in black or silver stainless steel with your choice of display color over at Tokyoflash now. If you order by Thursday, 11/29 at 4pm Japan time (2AM Eastern time), you can get the watch for an introductory price of $99(USD) – after which point the price goes up to $129.
