Tokyoflash Kisai Maru: Hard to Read, or Not?

As cool as their displays look, there are just some modern watches that will just leave people staring blankly at the watch face – kind of like the new Tokyoflash Kisai Maru. However, it’s really not that tricky once you get the hang of it.

The time is displayed along a simple curved path, with the dots mimicking the positions of traditional watch hands. The watch is LCD, and comes with an EL backlight. The inner-facing hand points to the hour while the outer-facing hand points to the minutes.

The display idea for the watch originated from Sam, a fan who submitted a pocket watch design to Tokyoflash last year. It is the eighth watch that was fan-submitted and produced by the Japanese watchmaker. The Kisai Maru is made from high-grade aluminum, making the watch quite lightweight. It weighs only 80 grams. It’s also water-resistant.

It’s available now for $149(USD) in black, silver and sienna colors over at Tokyoflash. And no, it’s not named after the rotund internet cat video star of the same name.
