Tokyoflash Japan has issued a new version of their Kisai Intoxicated watch.

Happy Hour Timepieces celebrate happy hour, with each of their watches highlighting the 5 hour marker. The Ish, for example has a slightly frosted mineral crystal that’s only clear “where it matters most”. Instead of traditional hands, it marks the hours and minutes with their Splash graphic. The screw-back case is made of brushed or […]
Tokyoflash Japan‘s watches usually have colorful faces, but their newest watch uses ePaper from eInk for the face. The Kisai Rorschach brings to mind those Rorschach tests psychologists use. The hour is displayed in the upper right, with its mirror image in the upper left. The minutes are in the lower left and mirrored on […]
I believe this is the first watch I’ve seen from Tokyoflash Japan that has two time modes: regular and cryptic. (Regular is stylized numerals and cryptic are those same numerals with the middle lines removed to give them an alien look.) In addition to the two time modes, the Kisai Xtal LED Watch has a date […]
The newest LCD watch from Tokyoflash Japan pulses like a quasar, which is probably why it’s called the Kisai Quasar. The watch can be used in numbers mode (seen on the right) for easier decoding of the time, or it can be used in the pulsing, pattern mode (left). The stainless steel case is available […]
Tick, tock. Time passes so fast that sometimes we forget to live and have fun and instead get caught up in work, grumpy moods, and wasting time doing nothing. In comes the Tikker wrist watch, a Kickstarter project. After filling out a short questionnaire, subtracting your age, and entering it into the watch, you will […]
The Zone Wood is the latest limited-edition watch from Tokyoflash Japan. This watch has a wooden case and band available in your choice of red or dark sandalwood or maple. Time is displayed as a “composition of stylized hexagons” on the black, blue, or purple face with electroluminescent backlighting. In addition to the 12-hour time […]
Tokyoflash Japan‘s latest watch was “inspired by aviation and automotive themes; Kisai Blade features a custom made turbine-style lens beneath which digital tube LEDs rotate like a propellor to display the time in an easy to read way.” The Blade’s case and strap are made of stainless steel in black, gold, or silver, and […]
We’ve seen wooden watches before from WeWOOD and Tokyoflash, but the wooden watches from SpringBreak Watches have them beat in at least one important way – affordability. SpringBreak also donates a portion of each sale to help fight childhood hunger in America. Each donation provides up to 10 meals to a child in need. The watches […]
The new Kisai Intoxicated Breathalyzer Watch from Tokyoflash Japan has the normal watch functions: time, date, and alarm.

The time has an always-on LCD and is shown in the negative spaces. The […]
The Quickindicator from Nord Zeitmachine promises it has the world’s quickest minute hand on a wrist watch. I’m not sure what the benefits of a quick minute hand are, but the watch does look very cool. These watches are made in Switzerland in a one-man shop. Daniel, the owner of Nord Zeitmachine, has a few […]
Tokyoflash Japan has two new watches that reuse a couple of old face designs. The design change lies with the cases and bands. The Kisai Stencil watch (top) has a blue, red, or mirror LCD face with a maple wood case and white leather band or a sandalwood face and black leather band. The Kisai […]

After a long stretch of wearing mechanical, self-winding watches, I got the urge for a state-of-the-art timepiece. An international trip where I needed to keep track of multiple time-zones was the final straw. After a lot of research and window shopping, I decided on the Casio G-Shock G-Aviation Mutli-Mission Combi (MMC), the GW3500B-1A (#5173).
This watch from Tokyoflash Japan does more than just tell the time. Bars at the bottom and top of the face of the Kisai OTO watch flash to ambient sounds. (Oto means sound in Japanese.) The watch has a black-anodized aluminum case and strap with a stainless steel clasp. The face always displays the time, […]
Tokyoflash Japan has issued another of their watches that seem to be as much a piece of art as a watch. The Kisai Adjust has 34 triangular LEDs that light up to display the time in either 12- or 24-hour format. You can toggle through six colors for the time display (blue, red, green, cyan, […]

The Sprout Watches company makes “eco-friendly timepieces” for women (top row), men (middle row), and children (bottom row). They remind me a bit of Swatch watches, and they have lots of different styles with simple, utilitarian faces, fun faces, or chronograph functions and in neutral colors to bright, colorful designs. What sets Sprout watches apart […]
Ok, TIME-IT watches aren’t really for superheroes, but Wonder Woman’s bracelets are the first things that popped in my mind when I saw these snap on style time pieces. Available in 11 colors, the TIME-IT watch features snap-curl band and rows of numbered LEDs that light up to show the hour and minute. Priced at €59, […]
Phosphor has released quite a few watches over the past few years, including the recently reviewed World Time Sport Watch. Today we’re going to look at one of the original fully-digital models, the Phosphor E-Ink Digital Hour Watch with Black Polyurethane Band. Functionally, it’s identical to the stainless steel version but with a flexible, sporty strap.
This new watch from Tokyoflash Japan seems even harder to read than normal, for me at least. The Kisai Polygon is the newest offering, and it, like most of their watches, has a stainless steel case and clasp and an adjustable stainless band. The watch is available in black or silver-colored, and faces are available in […]
