Kisai Rorschach ePaper Watch Makes Time-Telling a Challenge

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.
