Do you love unusual watches? Well Tokyoflash Japan has been a great source for strange and wonderful timepieces since the year 2000. While many of their designs are eye-catching, they’re also often difficult to read at a glance.
If you look back at Technabob over the years, you’ll notice that we’ve featured a number of cool watches from TokyoFlash Japan. In recent years, they haven’t been as prolific as back in the day, but they’re still coming up with some really neat and unusual timepieces, like this awesome looking design shown here.
The new Blade watch is their first watch to feature real carbon fiber components, and has a neat, sculpted display which looks a lot like a turbine fan.
Tokyoflash has a new batch of Kisai wristwatches. Naturally, the Satellite X and the Satellite X Acetate have odd eye-catching designs, but they’re actually easier to read compared to the company’s other watches. Both designs have three circles of LEDs.
While everyone else is talking about, waiting for or hating on the Apple Watch, Tokyoflash just keeps on keeping on. The watchmaker’s latest release is the Kisai Maze Wood, a wooden version of the Kisai Maze.
At first glance, this watch might look like a timepiece from the Iron Man franchise, but it’s not. It’s actually the TokyoFlash Kisai RPM gold watch. Like most TokyoFlash timepieces, it’ll require a bit of time and practice before its wearer will actually be able to read the time off of it.
The Kisai Rorschach is the newest watch from Tokyoflash, maker of timepieces that are intentionally bad at presenting the time. The display looks similar to the ink blots used in the eponymous test, but it’s actually easy to decipher.
If you’ve been following Technabob for any period of time, you know we’re big fans of Tokyoflash and their unusual watches. Now, here’s a Tokyoflash watch that is kind of a big fan itself. That is, it’s based on the fan blades of a turbofan engine.
Who doesn’t like having a watch that looks like it’s from the future? Well I sure would like to have one, and I have to say that the Kisai Neutron from Tokyoflash would be perfect for humans and Cylons alike.
If you like to go out and have a drink, it’s always problematic when you have to decide whether to drive your own car back home. Sometimes, enough time has passed for you to no longer be intoxicated, but other times, you’ll end up with a DUI – or worse.
A lot of Japanese watches aren’t that easy to read, but this one makes things look eve more undecipherable since it’s inspired by cryptography. The watch certainly looks distinctive, but will it be legible enough to be useful in daily life?
While everyone is going a bit nutty speculating about Apple’s potential iOS smartwatch, Japanese watchmakers are pumping out their own interesting watches. This one includes a sound sensor making it work like the bar graphs on a digital VU meter.
There may come a time when the ubiquitous loading screen that shows up in many games and computer software may no longer be needed, but if Tokyoflash approves this watch concept by a clever fellow named Max, we’ll always remember how we never cared for it at all.
Just like many Japanese watches, this new one from Tokyoflash looks somewhat hard to read, but apparently after having worn the watch for a day or so, you’ll be able to easily tell the time. But it’s not just the time-telling that makes this watch unique.
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.
