The Liquid Metal Watch from Tokyoflash Japan looks out of this world

When I was a kid, I would intentionally break old style glass thermometers just so I could play with the mercury inside them. I had no idea back then that mercury was toxic. I just loved watching the liquid metal separate into balls and then forms back into one blob when the individual pieces touched. With the Liquid Metal Watch from Tokyoflash Japan, you can have a similar experience without the whole poisoning issue. 

This unique watch which was inspired in part by the Terminator movies displays the current time with floating drops of liquid metal. The watch doesn’t use mercury but uses a liquid metal called Metallium. There are two fixed drops for the hour and minute hands and a larger drop of metal that can float freely around the dial. Check out the video below to see what the watch looks like in action.

The Liquid Metal Watch is available in Black or Silver with black, red, silver or blue liquid metal for $299.00 from Tokyoflash Japan.

  1. Their customer service is all but non existent. I was a customer and wrote to them twice and they never replied. Will never do business with them again.

    1. Hi Jim, I’m really sorry to hear this. We always do the best we can for our customers. It’s possible your emails were filtered somehow. Please can you try to email watches@tokyoflash.com again today? We will look out for your email and assist you asap.

    1. Hi Alan,

      The Liquid Metal Watch was developed by Japanese designer Yasushi Kimura between 2015 and 2016. The watch is the first of its kind and therefore the development and production process has taken time with many refinements and improvements – this is why delivery to backers took more time than expected. Nearly all original backers of the project have received their watch with the last few in delivery. Tokyoflash Japan is now able to start offering this design to customers. Delivery still takes time because the watches are being assembled to order.

  2. The most expensive and worthless watch I ever bought.
    I had to return it as it was full of faults and the replacement they sent after 2 weeks had the same faults( lots of white things floating in it, liquid metal separated into 6-7 pieces ,has several air bubbles in it etc…)
    Do not recommend anyone buys this watch.
