Tokyoflash has just launched another limited edition wristwatch which will make you struggle to tell the time, at least in the first few days.

Not that this would be news to anyone. Tokyoflash has been making cryptic timepieces ever since it was founded, and with the Kisai Clone it’s only continuing the tradition. That’s about the only thing that’s common to all Tokyoflash watches. Other than that, the design of this one is quite unique, and the signs of progress are present not only there. The Japanese watchmaker has ditched replaceable batteries in favor of a Li-Ion battery that charges via an USB cable that’s provided in the package.

Kisai Clone is available in four different versions, depending on the color of the strap and LEDs. Hence, you can choose between a black or white wristband and green or blue LEDs. If you were to ask me, I would tell you that the black strap/green LED version is the best-looking of all, even though the white/blue combination is attractive, as well.

Besides telling time (if you know how to read it), the Kisai Clone can also display the date. On top of that, the watch comes with an alarm and an animation that’s probably meant to dazzle anyone who’s looking at it. Between 6 pm and midnight, the animation will pop up every quarter of hour. The effect will resemble having a starship strapped to your wrist.

Charging the battery takes 3.5 hours, and a full charge should keep Kisai Clone up and running for up to 1 month, depending on how often you use the animation. Considering that it doesn’t feature an energy hungry display, there aren’t any features that drain the battery as quickly as in the case of smartwatches. Even though one month is more than enough, I feel that such watches should have a longer battery life.

As all the other Tokyoflash watches, Kisai Clone is a limited edition and will only be available for a short period of time. It costs $99, so if you want it, head over to the manufacturer’s website and claim yours within the next 29 hours. Liking the product page on Facebook will bring down the price by $4, and while that’s not a lot, in today’s world, every discount matters, no matter how small.

Modern Kisai Sequence Makes a Riddle Out of Time-Telling http://walyou.com/tokyoflash-kisai-sequence/ http://walyou.com/tokyoflash-kisai-sequence/#comments Thu, 10 Jul 2014 20:10:51 +0000 http://walyou.com/?p=177126

The latest Kisai Sequence is yet another original approach at telling-time in a cryptic way. Tokyoflash’s timepiece doesn’t fail to impress people who are into geeky watches.

Unlike previous Kisai watches, which required a bit of time in order to figure out what time it is, Kisai Sequence is cryptic, but also easy to decipher. The alternating pattern of raised cubes is complemented by a custom made curved acrylic lens and some sub-surface digital tube LEDs that create an interesting effect.

Kisai Sequence displays the time in two different ways, but besides that, it has functions that are typical for LED watches. More precisely, it features a date mode, alarm clock, and six user-customizable animations. After all, an LED timepiece tends to be rather bland without such details.

There are four different versions to choose from, depending on the color of the LEDs and of the leather strap. The LEDs can be either red or blue, while the leather strap is available in white or black.

Depending on the way users choose to have time displayed, Kisai Sequence is easy or difficult to read. In one case, time is displayed on two rows and is very easy to ready, while in the other mode, the middle line of the digit is gone. All in all, the second mode isn’t impossible, either, but it may require some getting used to. In other words, the ones who are not aware of how this watch functions may remain perplexed.

Activating the LED display requires you to touch a button. In stand-by, the alternating cubes of the display and of the leather strap leave the impression that you’re wearing a bracelet, and the only detail that might give you away is the differences in color.

For the next 5 hours, Kisai Sequence is available at the promotional price of $109. This can be furthermore discounted by $4 after liking the page on Facebook. Below is a video of the watch in real world scenarios, so you can figure out if you like it or not.

Kisai Sequence charges over USB, fact that makes it really convenient. Fully-charging the included battery takes 3.5 hours, and under normal conditions, this should be more than enough for two months of use.

Kisai Rorschach ePaper Watch Makes Time-Telling a Challenge http://walyou.com/tokyoflash-kisai-rorschach-e-paper-watch/ http://walyou.com/tokyoflash-kisai-rorschach-e-paper-watch/#comments Mon, 02 Dec 2013 22:31:24 +0000 http://walyou.com/?p=171452

Tokyoflash made a habit from challenging us to tell the time correctly when using any of their watches, but with 3 difficulty modes, Kisai Rorschach seems to be the most elaborate one, yet.

More than a tribute to Hermann Rorschach, the Swiss Freudian psychiatrist and psychoanalyst who developed the Rorschach inkblot test, Kisai’s E-Paper watch is a tribute to the main antihero in the graphic novel Watchmen, as demonstrated in this video. Initially a concept developed by Sam from Germany and exhibited on the Tokyoflash Studio Design Blog, Kisai Rorschach is now a reality.

The Rorschach watch is the first Tokyoflash creation to ever feature an ePaper display made by E-Ink. This feature helps displaying the time in a unique manner, something that could not have been done with a LED or LCD display.

The advantages of using ePaper for this timepiece’s display do not stop here. Time can be read without pressing any buttons, as the display is on at all times. On top of that, ePaper displays are known to consume a fraction of the energy needed by its more colorful counterparts. A power saving Sleep Mode has also been included, and considering that in this mode the device’s battery can last up to 3 years, I couldn’t ask for more. Mind you, in case the battery ever needs to be changed, look for CR2016 cell batteries.

Users have the option to change the difficulty levels, as well as the display mode. More precisely, the drawings representing the time are either displayed as black on white (positive) or white on black (negative).

As always, Tokyoflash offers several customization options, just to make sure that not everyone wearing a Kisai Rorschach looks the same. More precisely, this wristwatch comes in black, black leather, brown leather, silver, and white leather. No matter how unusual your wardrobe is, chances are that one of these will definitely match your outfits.

Kisai Rorschach isn’t only one of the most difficult to read Tokyoflash watches of all times, but also one of the most expensive timepieces made by the Japanese manufacturer. The E-Paper watch is available on the Tokyoflash website for $184. The manufacturer also offers a $4 discount for liking the product’s page on Facebook, so if you like this model, don’t forget to do that.

Now that Tokyoflash revealed one of its most beautiful creations, I wonder what the next addition to the Kisai line is going to look like.

Kisai Xtal Hides the Time Under a Hexagonal Prism http://walyou.com/tokyoflash-kisai-xtal/ http://walyou.com/tokyoflash-kisai-xtal/#comments Wed, 30 Oct 2013 21:19:29 +0000 http://walyou.com/?p=170719

This is the second watch bearing a hexagonal motif that makes the jump from the Tokyoflash Design Studio Blog to mass production this month.

The hexagonal shape is not the only feature that Kisai Quasar and Kisai Xtal share in common, as both these LED wristwatches tell the time in a cryptic manner. While Quasar had the numbers representing the time hidden within hexagons, the Xtal makes them unreadable to the untrained by making a line disappear. Most importantly, the missing line is under the hexagonal prism that makes the face of the watch.

Time is displayed either in easy or cryptic mode, and six different user-selectable animations that combine the two modes are also available. Besides that, Kisai Xtal can also display the date and alarms.

Reading the time requires users to press a specific button. In stand-by, however, the LCD display is black, and the prism gives it a very futuristic look. Basically, the Kisai Xtal resembles a rather bulky bracelet when its display is turned off.

Kisai Xtal’s prism is in fact the edgy mineral crystal lens that dominates the middle of the timepiece’s face. Usually, Tokyoflash watches feature a single animation, but this particular LED watch seems to be different. The six custom animation the Kisai Xtal comes with enable wearers to illuminate the display each 15 minutes between 6 pm and midnight, for example.

As the manufacturer puts it, Kisai Xtal features a minimal watch design in futuristic material colors. The wristwatch comes with either a black or a gold metallic strap and a variety of LED color options: red, blue, green and white. As usual, I think that the golden version looks a bit tacky, but that may be a matter of taste. Regardless of the color of the LED, the black version has a silver trim on both sides of the strap, fact that accentuates its futuristic look.

Charging this wristwatch’s battery takes 3.5 hours. Upon doing so, people can use the watch for approximately two months. Of course, this period is conditioned by each wearer’s usage habits. As far as the gender of the wearers, it really does not make any difference. Kisai Xtal will look equally fine around the wrist of a man or a woman.

Kisai Xtal is available on the Tokyoflash website for $139, from which people can subtract $4 by liking the page on Facebook.

Kisai Quasar Hexagonal LCD Watch Tells Time in a Cryptic Way http://walyou.com/tokyoflash-kisai-quasar/ http://walyou.com/tokyoflash-kisai-quasar/#comments Thu, 24 Oct 2013 20:15:24 +0000 http://walyou.com/?p=170551

Once a concept on the Tokyoflash Design Studio Blog, the Kisai Quasar hexagonal LCD watch has entered mass-production recently. While it may take a while to get used to it, Kisai Quasar is definitely worth wearing around your wrist, and is guaranteed to help you step out of the crowd.

Hexagons dominate the design of Kisai Quasar. Not only its case (and consequently the dial) has this geometrical shape. The LCD display is filled with smaller hexagons that hide the time from unadvised eyes.

These hexagons are only visible when the pattern mode is activated. We can deduce that there are multiple ways of displaying the time. Users are hence recommended to select the mode they are most comfortable with, as distinguishing the numbers inside the hexagons may be difficult at times.

As seen in the following picture, Kisai Quasar also features a number mode, which displays the time sans the camouflage. The two upper numbers denote the current hour, while the lower ones denote the minutes. The third way of displaying the time, called Animation Mode, represents an animated transition between the two other modes. It looks hypnotizing, but hopefully it does not induce headaches.

Kisai Quasar does more than just telling the time. More precisely, it also comes with alarm mode, stop watch, animation and EL backlight.

In terms of sturdiness, Kisai Quasar is built to last a long time. Its stainless steel strap and case have a glossy finish that’s meant to catch the eye of other people. If you add the fact that it’s a limited edition timepiece that not many others will get to wear, you will definitely realize the true value of this hexagonal watch.

The watch comes in 8 possible color combinations. Basically, people can choose between black or silver metallic straps and green, blue, red or mirror LCD displays. Regardless of what combination you will pick, your Kisai Quasar will definitely look great. I’m glad that Tokyoflash decided not to use a golden strap on this one, as it would’ve looked a bit tacky.

Tokyoflash prides itself in having designed and manufactured all of the components of the Kisai Quasar, including the strap, case and the unique LCD display.

Kisai Quasar is on sale on the Tokyoflash website for $149. As usual, the manufacturer offers a $4 discount if you like the Facebook page of the product.

Modern and Stylish Kisai Maru Wooden LCD Timepiece http://walyou.com/tokyoflash-kisai-maru/ http://walyou.com/tokyoflash-kisai-maru/#comments Wed, 18 Sep 2013 15:45:59 +0000 http://walyou.com/?p=169445

Tokyoflash’s latest addition to its already great collection is a wooden wristwatch with an LCD display, called Kisai Maru.

There seems to be an unwritten rule out there that wristwatches should feature either a leather strap or a metallic one. Tokyoflash’s initiative of making a watch with wooden strap and case seems unusual, yet it should be a welcomed change. Kisai Maru is what smartwatches should look like. It combines circles and edges in a beautiful way, and people might think that the wooden case is contrasting the mirrored LCD display, but it’s quite the opposite.

Maru is the Japanese word for “circle,” and that’s exactly how the time is displayed on this wristwatch. The LCD display features an orbiting ring with two hands, one facing inwards and the other facing outwards. The first one points to the hour, while the latter points to the minutes. No one should be confused by this, as the time is quite easy to tell on the Kisai Maru timepiece, in comparison to other Tokyoflash watches.

Watch designer Sam Jerichow stated the following about the Tokyoflash Kisai Maru: “When I made my early sketches for the display, I was trying to give analog time telling a new guise. Then I actually designed a pocket for my new generation digital analog display. When I saw the first images of the wrist watch, I was surprised how good it looked and how nicely the display has been embedded with the circle in the case and the all-around-the-wrist line in the strap. The name Maru, that I gave the original concept, was translated in a fantastic way. Thank you Tokyoflash! I’d also like to thank my fans who say what they like and what they don’t – the support is great!”

One of the best things about this timepiece is that you wouldn’t have to press any buttons in order the time. As stated in the following picture, the time is displayed at all times. Of course, since Kisai Maru comes with EL backlight, you do have the option of illuminating the screen, in order to find out what time it is at night or in poor light conditions.

Besides time and backlight, this watch also comes with other features. You can have the date displayed on screen or you can set an alarm. It is also possible to set the orbiting ring to get animated each 5 minutes, but that would drain the battery faster. Speaking of batteries, Kisai Maru works with a CR2025 battery that should keep the watch alive for at least 12 months.

Liking the dedicated page of the Kisai Maru wristwatch on Facebook will get you a $4 discount, thus bringing the price down to $95.

At press time, there were a bit over 10 hours to get the Tokyoflash Kisai Maru at this special price. When this time expires, the manufacturer either will keep it in its offer at a higher price or will remove it altogether.

Kisai Maru is available in maple or red sandalwood, but the color might be slightly different from what you see above.

Kisai Blade Mixes Aviation and Automotive Themes http://walyou.com/tokyoflash-kisai-blade/ http://walyou.com/tokyoflash-kisai-blade/#comments Wed, 28 Aug 2013 11:45:46 +0000 http://walyou.com/?p=168722

Many Tokyoflash timepieces are challengeable to read, but the propeller-resembling Kisai Blade makes this a bit easier, by being more intuitive.

Kisai Blade’s lens looks much like a turbine used in the construction of cars or airplanes. Under this original face, digital tube LEDs rotate in order to tell the time in a unique manner. While it might look simple, this wrist watch can display the time in two different ways, as well as the date, using the very same LED tubes. On top of that, Kisai Blade doubles as an alarm clock. The fact that its battery charges via USB makes it very convenient, as wearers don’t have to worry about forgetting a proprietary charging cable at home when traveling. A full charge shouldn’t last more than 3.5 hours, and should provide enough power for a whole month.

This timepiece features only two buttons, the upper one being used for the time. To display the time in turning mode, wearers have to select it from the settings. Upon doing so, the LED tubes will rotate, thus highlighting the three blades that correspond to the current hour and minutes. It takes a few seconds to read the time this way, but the impressive design of the Kisai Blade compensates for that.

The second way to display the time, called Flashing Mode features a solid hours hand, a flashing one for groups of 5 minutes and up to 4 dots near the 12 o’clock mark for displaying 1-4 minutes. I must admit that this mode takes far less time to read than the previous one.

The Kisai Blade wristwatch looks quite elegant, provided that people choose a good color combination. I think the golden one with a metallic strap looks a bit tacky, but it’s all a matter of taste. When buying a Kisai Blade, people first have to choose between a stainless steel and a leather strap. Next, they have to pick the LED color they like the most, the available options being green, blue and red.

At press time, there were 14 hours left for getting the Kisai Blade at the launch price of $139. Liking the product’s page on Facebook would get people an instant $4 discount. When this time expires, though, people will have to pay $159 for Tokyoflash’s latest creation.

Kisai Neutron Motion Sensing LED Wristwatch http://walyou.com/kisai-neutron-motion-sensing-led-wristwatch/ http://walyou.com/kisai-neutron-motion-sensing-led-wristwatch/#comments Fri, 02 Aug 2013 11:45:40 +0000 http://walyou.com/?p=167823

The latest addition to the Kisai series of wristwatches made by Tokyoflash tells the time on sub-surface LED light bars when the wearer flicks his wrist or touches a button.

It goes without saying that Neutron seems to be a watch characters from sci-fi flicks would wear. Its display looks very futuristic, but it also is incredibly functional at the same time. As if the display wasn’t a big enough selling point for this timepiece, Tokyoflash enables wearers to customize the Kisai Neutron to a certain degree. More precisely, it can display the time in several different ways.

First and foremost is the “flick of the wrist” method. The Kisai Neutron wristwatch employs a motion sensor to tell when it is held in horizontal position. The manufacturer assumed that the wearers hold the watch that way when they want to know what time it is. Flicking the wrist will cause the time to be displayed on the bars, either in 12 or 24-hour format.

There is also the Pulse option, which determines the numbers to pulse in and out. Telling the time in this manner might take a while, and while it looks really fancy, I would recommend against using this setting.

The third option is to have the time waving up and down. This might prove pretty confusing, as well, but I guess that people get used to the effect after wearing the watch for a while. On top of that, the display could be set to be always on, but it’s safe to assume that the battery drains faster in this mode. Speaking of the battery, it takes 1.5 hours to fully charge it via USB. Upon doing so, the battery should last for up to 30 days of normal use. Not at last, the wearers could have all the previous modes disabled if they prefer to push a button to have the time displayed.

One of the best things about Kisai Neutron is it comes in a wide variety of colors. Not only the color of the bracelet can be different, but also the color of the LEDs. Users can choose between black + red LED, gunmetal + blue LED, black + blue LED, gold + red LED and gunmetal + white LED. The gold one looks a bit tacky to me, but all the other ones are quite fashionable.

Kisai Neutron is on sale on the Tokyoflash Japan website for $169. At launch it cost $139, but that offer is no longer available, unfortunately. The price still includes free shipping worldwide, so if you’re not into the smartwatches that are continuously flooding the market, this geeky futuristic wristwatch might be the one for you.

Newest Tokyoflash Wristwatch Doubles as a Breathalyzer http://walyou.com/tokyoflash-kisai-intoxicated/ http://walyou.com/tokyoflash-kisai-intoxicated/#comments Sun, 23 Jun 2013 14:57:36 +0000 http://walyou.com/?p=166161

If Tokyoflash is known for one thing, it’s the sometimes difficult to read, yet incredibly functional geeky wristwatches. This also seems to be the case with Kisai Intoxicated, which tells the time and the blood alcohol concentration.

Of course, there are plenty of breathalysers out there, in different shapes and sizes. Heck, if you don’t have one at hand, the Police would be more than glad to help you find out your BAC. Joke aside, don’t drink and drive! At least that’s what this elegant time piece is supposed to remind you. Kisai Intoxicated shows the time and the date, but it also comes with an alarm and a sobriety game. The first three features are displayed as negative spaces on an LED display.

The sobriety game features a line that moves rapidly left and right. The purpose of the game is to hit a button when the line is dead center. In fewer words, the further it is from the center, the drunker you are.

To access the breathalyser, you would have to push a button and unscrew the cap covering the sensor. When the countdown finishes, you should blow air on the sensor. Your blood alcohol concentration is then shown on the display of the watch.

This wristwatch is also very easy to recharge, since it does this via USB. Upon fully charging the battery, people should get up to one month of normal use. I guess that depends on the number of times the breathalyser is used, but the wristwatch’s other functions will also influence the overall standby time.

Kisai Intoxicated can be pre-ordered for $149 on the Tokyoflash website. If you think it’s expensive, try to remember what happens to people who are caught drunk behind the wheel. Maybe this timepiece is not 100% accurate, but it should give people an idea about how much they drank and whether it would be wise to drive.

It’s about time we had a watch that would tell people “Go home, you’re drunk!” so thank you for that, Tokyoflash! And what better way to test it than on a Scotsman? It’s a bit of a dispute whether the Scots are better than the Irish at this rough sport called drinking, but they’re not that far apart from each other, so Tokyoflash made the correct choice. Check out the following video to see how Kisai Intoxicated works:
