Tokyoflash Kisai Stencil Watch Tells Time in Negative Space

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  February 21, 2012

This has to be one of the more interesting recent designs from Tokyoflash – I think I might actually get this one! The Kisai Stencil showcases the time in an intuitive fashion, thanks to the custom digits that are displayed. Unlike some of their other watches, a glance is enough to know the exact time.


Based on a user-submitted design concept by Heather Sable, the Stencil’s case is made out of stainless steel and it comes with a leather strap. The LCD face shows the time in negative space, which can be cryptic when you first glance at it, but very easily deciphered when you understand it. The hours are in the upper half of the screen, while the minutes are at the bottom. Besides the LCD time display, it has an EL backlight, alarm and date modes.

There are two versions available. The normal version (available in several LCD colors) will light up the digits while the mirror version will light up the space separating the digits. Both watches offer a stainless steel case can be ordered with a black or white leather band. You can get yours over at TokyoFlash for $99(USD) until February 22nd at 11PM (EST). After that, the price goes up to $139.
