Some watches are easy to read, and then there are some that are just plain indecipherable. While I prefer watches that are easy to read, and that allow you to tell the time but with a glance, this new Tokyoflash is a mix of both. Once you see the way the display works, it’s really easy to tell the time but anyone else who isn’t in the know will have trouble.
The Tokyoflash Kisai Space Digits watch is definitely something that Marty McFly would have liked on his wrist. It reminds me of TRON and some of the retro arcade games that involve travel through tunnels. The time is displayed on the walls of the tunnel, on the left and right. The date is displayed on the ceiling and floor of the tunnel. That sounds pretty straightforward, but you have to look at the watch for a few seconds before you really see it. There’s an alarm and EL backlight as well as an animation mode.
The Space Digits watch sells for $99(USD) until December 6, after which time, it will cost you $129. It’s available in sandblasted steel, black or gold. The display comes in either green or gold.
