TokyoFlash asked me if I would help them give three watches away to Boing Boing readers -- naturally, I said yes!
I love the amazing, impractical watches sold by Japanese boutique TokyoFlash. I have bought so many of these that I've lost count, and I just love the feeling I get that I'm rewiring my brain when I learn to tell time on one of them.
To win any watch on the TokyoFlash site, just answer the following question: "which watch was designed by Yasushi and Makoto and was inspired by architectural concepts around Tokyo?"
Send your answer, along with the make, model and color of watch you'd like to win to email@example.com. 3 winners will be selected from the correct entries on the 27th of November.
TokyoFlash is also offering a 1500 Yen ($13) discount if you can guess what time is being shown on the face of this watch.

Anxiety and stress are often constant companions during the best of times. But now, with fear and frustration running rampant, it’s easy to be subsumed by all the distractions and […]
Most of us aren’t constantly beset by poor posture. But all it takes is some subtle misalignment while you’re doing serious hours behind the wheel driving or working away at a desk to do a real number on your back. In fact, most of us are so unaware of the mechanics of good posture that […]
From ordering from Amazon to paying bills over the web to something as simple as bottled water, we’re all hooked on modern convenience. We can’t help it. There are just too many modern world advances that save us too much time not to become a creature of comfort and go the easy route. Even if […]
