Scope 2 Rgb LED Watch Reminds Me of Vector Video Games

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  October 17, 2008


I don’t know what it is about these retro-futuristic watches from Japan, but for me they conjure up images of 1980s color vector video games like Tempest or Quantum.

The limited-edition Scope 2 watch uses a special multi-color (RGB) LED display to tell the time. Depending on the model you choose, either a red or green horizontal hairline signifies an hour, while a contrasting colored “target” surrounds the current 5 minute interval, and four tiny dots which reside on a separate circular nub indicate individual minutes. Sound a bit confusing? Maybe this diagram will help sort things out for you:

Better, no? If you do manage to figure out anything other than the fact that it’s about 20 minutes after something or other, let me know.

At this point, the only place you can get the Scope 2 is from Japanese watch seller Seahope for ¥21,000 (appx $207 USD) but I’m HOPEful (get it?) that they’ll make their way to the western hemisphere soon.
