Whenever I wear a wristwatch to a long, boring meeting in a room without a clock, I’ll often catch others craning their necks to see the time. No one wants to be caught pulling their phone out, though it’s just as conspicuous to cock your head to the side trying to look at someone’s wrist. If you’d prefer to make it far harder on those around you, then why not get a timepiece that only you can read?
TokyoFlash always surprises us with innovative designs that are simultaneously beautiful and confusing. The most recent addition to the Kisai family is the Clone. This modern watch has a combination of matte surfaces with glossy details on a smoky lens behind which LEDs shine through. The strap is made of silicone, which means it will be comfortable to wear for extended periods of time. This charges via USB, which means you won’t have to worry about replacing batteries.
There are three display modes which includes turning, flashing, and animation mode. The first will have LEDs rotating around the clock face, highlighting three lines to indicate the hours and minutes. The lines will be in the same positioning as a normal clock. The second Flashing mode will simply flash the lines that indicate the hours and minutes at a glance. The final mode will illuminate all of the lights in a pattern, mainly for aesthetic effect. This watch will cost you $99, and comes in black or white with blue or green LEDs.
