Fur-faced LED watch


TokyoFlash has brought out its long-awaited "Waku" watch, a super-thin LED watch that uses a wide variety of textiles for the face, creating an unbroken loop with the band. You can customize the LED colours, too. We saw a prototype of these when we were in Tokyo in September, and my wife, an avowed non-watch-wearer, was absolutely taken with the "fur" version.

  1. Yes, but what women doesn’t like fur of any kind?? And to all those that say “I don’t believe in using fur of any kind blah blah” you can’t hide the fact that down deep you still secretly burn for it.

  2. can’t say I’m a fan of a three step time telling device. Whatever happened to combining art and function?

  3. Yea! another dumb creation by someone just trying to make money and kill some animals while doing it.

    Personally I want to be able to look at a watch, if I ever cared to own one, and tell the time even if I’m three sheets to the wind.

  4. “Personally I want to be able to look at a watch, if I ever cared to own one, and tell the time even if I’m three sheets to the wind.”

    Digital watch fan, eh?
    Let’s look at from another angle. Suppose you weren’t taught to read a traditional clock. If someone was trying to sell that to you, you’d be just as puzzled attempting to read that “three sheets to the wind” style.

    Just because something LOOKS more complex doesn’t mean that it necessarily is. And just because you aren’t TRAINED to look at it and instantly decipher it’s meaning doesn’t mean it’s “dumb”.

    But I digress: why re-invent the wheel?

  5. #1 I don t particularly have any desire to cover myself in the skinned corpse of an adorable furry animal, no.

    Yay for more murdered animals for the sake of human vanity, pure and simple.

    Absolutely disgusting.

  6. Because real fur is less than two centimetres in length.

    What do you think they’re skinning? Gophers?

  7. Yeah… If they made these in something like canvas… cordura… latex… That I’d be all over. Fur and leather? Not so much.

    Hopefully the concept of “a wide variety of textiles” will be made a bit wider to give us some friendlier options.

    Love the idea, hate the execution.
