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.
Why did Batman sit on his watch? He wanted to be on time. (Ba-dum-bum.) Like most of the Joker’s jokes, there’s nothing funny about the seriously intricate Swiss-made timepieces from RJ: two DC Comics watches featuring Batman foes The Joker and Two-Face.
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.
There are thousands upon thousands of Avengers collectibles on the market, but here are some that I had no idea existed. What you’re looking at are the officially-licensed Avengers pocket watches. The series includes eight different watches, made to celebrate some of the members of Marvel’s popular superhero team.
Bradford Exchange will offer up pocket watches with logo graphics for Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Thor, Ant-Man, Falcon, and Hawkeye.
Despite the fact that I wear an Apple Watch most days, there are still times where I’d rather wear a watch with a bit more style and a good old analog dial. One of these sweet limited edition Super Mario Bros.
Watches can be really cool, and a good watch can elevate a guy’s attire from good to gooooooood. The problem is that really cool ones often , like the Maurice LaCroix Roue Carrée Seconde (my personal favorite), often have really uncool price tags (like the Roue Carree’s $9,900 price tag).
There’s something quite awesome about analog watches with big, bold features. It’s not easy to find distinctive watches. After a while, they tend to resemble each other. That’s why I like these watches from Tendence, which look pretty swanky as well as contemporary, so they won’t look out of place in the office or when you’re going out.
Tendence Watches are made in Switzerland and each of them has a large circular case, as big as 50mm in some cases.
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.
Concrete is an interesting material, but I’ve never thought about using it to make watches. Paris-based designer Dzmitry Samal has launched a series of watches, with frames made out of the durable material.
Watchmaker LAKS teamed up with MasterCard to develop Watch2Pay, a wristwatch with RFID technology. Aside from telling the time, Watch2Pay can be used to make payments simply by holding it next to a scanning device. Why?
MINUS 8 Watches are the brainchild of Dana Krieger of Astro Studios. The name refers to the UTC -8 time zone of the West Coast of the USA. The recently completed watches exhibit that time is relative, meaning that everyone perceives time in a slightly different manner.
Remember Swatch watches from way back when? Well, the Swiss watch maker has unveiled its very first touchscreen watch called, what else? The Swatch Touch. It is expected to hit retailers next month and they look just as colorful and cool as their old watches.
The Tokyoflash Kisai Night Vision was submitted as a concept about a year ago and thanks to the user votes on the Tokyoflash website, it has become reality. It’s surprisingly easy to read once you figure out how to do so.
You – or at least your waist – will certainly be the center of attention with this humorous belt from German brand Bless. The belt is actually made of two strips of leather, which serves as the straps for the watch.
While I initially thought that this watch was basically a touch-enabled timepiece, it’s actually something different. Samuel Jerichow completely minimizes the essence of a watch down to three dots. Thanks to advances in tactile displays, this watch could be feasible.
This unique watch from Tokyoflash tells time with words instead of numbers or hands. The always-on LCD watch was originally submitted by a 15-year old Canadian and Tokyoflash made it into reality. Tynan Mayhew submitted this design last year and it’s now available for all, through Tokyoflash’s online store.
