at least this one actually have numbers, and seems to have them distributed in a fairly traditional pattern.
It’s neat and all, but as much as I like unusual watches, they always seem to make telling time that much more difficult. Then again, these are novelties, so readability isn’t a feature, heh.
What a stupid, expensive waste of plastic and metal.
And there goes the critic…
What time is it on that watch?! 4:30? 10:30? Does “15” mean seconds or the date?
I’m going to take a guess at 2.23 and 30 seconds on the 15th of the month
Looks like gridlock. Know what time it is? Time to take the bus !
“Not recommended for use while drinking heavily”
Come on, its not hard. 12:59 is the time on the watch; there is even a key that shows you quite clearly what each part means!
I love TokyoFlash watches so much, I don’t care if they are impractical, they represent something pure and geeky. I will get one, one day.
Amazingly enough, this looks like a pretty good representation of the Sapporo Subway. They’ve even got the colors right!
Want. I wouldn’t use it to tell time; I’d just love to have a quasi-random OLED display on my wrist. Flashbacks to the wrist control bands on “Ark II,” one of my favorite Saturday-morning brain-rotters from childhood.
