Tokyoflash Japan Watches are stylish masterpieces

Watches serve two main purposes. They tell the time and date, and sometimes display other information, and also express your personal style and taste.

If you are a geek, or someone who likes techie things, then you have probably heard about Tokyoflash Japan and the watches the company manufactures before.

All Tokyoflash watches have in common that they tell the time in unique ways. Instead of using conventional ways to display the time, these watches use a variety of unique ways to do so.

Often, that means to sit back for a moment and look at the watch to figure it out. That should not keep you from buying one of those watches though, considering that you get excellent instructions with each watch so that you know exactly how it works.

Tokyoflash Japan sent me two watches, the Kisai Uzumaki Analog Watch and the Kisai Polygoon Wood watch, for testing. Both watches came well protected in stylish packaging.

The Uzumaki

The Uzumaki, which translates to whirlpool, is a limited edition analog watch that displays a spiraling vortex displaying hours in the outer ring and minutes in the inner ring, while the hand indicates the seconds.

Once you know that, it is easy to tell the time as you just have to check where the solid color -- blue in this case -- ends in the outer and inner ring to do so.

The body of the watch is made of durable stainless steel strap which comes in a reasonable size. If your wrist is small, you may have to remove some links so that it fits your wrist perfectly. It is not a light watch by any means with its 140 grams, but if you are used to stainless steel watches, that won't come as a surprise to you.

The custom acrylic lens features concentric circles that descend from the edge of the case into the center to highlight the whirlpool theme of the watch.

You set the time just like any other analog watch. Just pull the crown out and turn it in either direction to change the time. When the time is set, push the crown back in and you are all set.

Another feature of this watch is that you can illuminate the display by pressing the button of the watch. This is a cool looking effect, especially at night or in dark places.

The Uzumaki is available in three different color schemes: black and blue, silver and blue, or silver and green. Black and silver refer to the band and casing, while blue and green to the inner and outer ring colors.

What I like

  • Stylish design
  • Backlight looks great when it is dark.
  • Durable.
  • Not too difficult to tell the time.

What's missing

  • It has no date function.

The Polygon Wood LCD Watch

This watch is special for a number of reasons. First, its case is made of dark sandalwood, something that you do not see very often when it comes to watches.

But, that pales when it comes to the display of time. It is actually not difficult at all to tell the time once you get the hang out of it. Hours are shown in the outer ring by where the two small triangles meet. Minutes on the other hand use the inner triangle to highlight minutes in groups of ten, and digits that are shown in the center of the watch that you add to it.

If you take the example on the photo above, you will come to the conclusion that it is 8:50.

That's not all of the functionality the watch offers. It displays the date as well, features an alarm timer, and backlighting.

It is a lightweight watch at 45 gram, especially if you compare it to the Uzumaki watch which weights more than three times as much.

According to Tokyoflash, it is a unisex watch for men and women

What I like

  • The dark sandal wood case is ultra-stylish, and the leather band the watch ships with adds to that.
  • It tells the time, data, features an alarm timer, and backlighting.

What's missing

  • Nothing

Both watches cost around €100, a reasonable price considering that you get quality watches in return for that money.

Closing Words

It is clear that Tokyoflash watches are not for anyone. But if you happen to be a geek, or someone who likes unique interesting things, then this is definitely an area that you may want to explore further.

You find dozens of watches on the manufacturer's website, and while it comes down to personal taste which you like, you can be sure that they are all unique in their own special way.

    Watch sales have plummeted since everyone now carries a cell phone. But, there's still nothing better than a good, attractive and unique looking wrist watch. This one, I like.

  2. Billy O'Reilly February 26, 2014 at 9:15 pm #

    Those are absolutely beautiful

  3. Zeal0us February 26, 2014 at 9:17 pm #

    Looks weird but its free so I can live with it.

  4. Odio February 26, 2014 at 9:19 pm #

    Great Giveaway Martin ! i Like more the Polygon Wood ! Hope i get one of these !

  5. Tobias February 26, 2014 at 9:20 pm #

    They actually look pretty nifty. Simple, but yet advanced.

  6. MZNG February 26, 2014 at 9:20 pm #

    Why not :)

  7. leon February 26, 2014 at 9:24 pm #

    holy crap those look amazing

  8. Dante February 26, 2014 at 9:26 pm #

    Looks pretty neat. Would definitely make for a great conversation piece if you're still single and sitting in a bar or on a train. For this the manufacturer should make it glow constantly to attract the insect, er, mate. But that wood construction would be demolished within weeks.

    Don't put me in the drawing. I won't give out my real name or address anyway :)

    Functional Paranoid, that's what I am.
    (not even my Paypal has real info, except for the prepaid credit card number)

    • Martin Brinkmann February 26, 2014 at 9:31 pm #

      They are great conversation starters, tested it in the wild and they do get my stamp of approval.

  9. Richard Pedersen February 26, 2014 at 9:27 pm #

    These watches look great and I'd really like to win one ;-)

    Thanks for the chance to win, Martin!

    Haven't worn an actual watch in a very long time...

  11. Eli M February 26, 2014 at 9:45 pm #

    You know, I've seen these watches and finally got to wear one and it blew my mind how cool they look on my wrist as compared to just seeing them on a video or on someone else's wrist. I would love to have a chance at this! Long time reader, first time poster!

    The Uzumaki is probably the one I would be leaning towards because it isn't too abstract compared to the Polygon Wood watch. The brightness on the Uzumaki is probably the keeper for me since I work in a lot of dark areas depending on the task. It would be nice to show this one off!

    Cheers!
    Eli

  12. Marc February 26, 2014 at 9:55 pm #

    I have to say that the highlight to anyone's day would be someone asking you the time.. and you just hold the watch up for them to look themselves. Normally a simple way to give the time, but with these guys... the look on their faces would be...
    Wait! That is the one thing they are missing! A camera to capture their faces during that moment!

    • Tomer February 26, 2014 at 10:44 pm #

      Haha, they should add the camera :)

  13. CWagner February 26, 2014 at 9:56 pm #

    Sounds great, I love Tokyoflash :) Though, should I win the Uzumaki, give it to someone else, I don't like analog watches ;)

  14. Guilty February 26, 2014 at 9:58 pm #

    All are interesting, but Kisai LED Watch Blade is that most caught my attention.

  15. Steve Key February 26, 2014 at 10:15 pm #

    I initially read the review about the The Uzumaki and thought it was quite the innovative watch.
    The only drawback, as Martin noted is the lack of date feature.
    However, The Polygon Wood LCD Watch has nothing missing and appears to be just as feature
    rich as the Uzumaki.

    You can count me in for the Giveaway, Martin as I'm seriously into Geekware! :)

  16. Don Sharp February 26, 2014 at 10:15 pm #

    Thanks for the opportunity to win an absolutely awesome watch!

  17. Patrick February 26, 2014 at 10:18 pm #

    Wow these watched are SO cool. Thanks for the chance to win!

  18. Anton Bilic February 26, 2014 at 10:20 pm #

    Hallo Martin,
    Choose me please.All my life I've been crazy about men's watches.In elementary school I begged my parents for the Casio wristwatch calculator at that time if you had such a wristwatch you have been really big dude, it's a long,long time ago.I still Like 'em to buy and wear even I have watch on the phone.Casio,Orient,Seiko,German Tutima is most expensive i buy,Festina,Sigma(sport) Pulsar,Citizen,Breil,Fossil,Luminox.......Tokyoflash Japan Watches is something new for me but I really like the watch,looks very futuristic and has an analog dial Looks like a swatch watch in the next century.
    Greetings from Anton B.

    The Polygon Wood LCD Watch

  20. Johan Gustavsson February 26, 2014 at 10:41 pm #

    Those watches are absolutely beautiful....

    Please count me in for this giveaway!

  21. Leigh S February 26, 2014 at 10:43 pm #

    I have their R75 binary watch and it is amazing, Great conversation starter... That being said, having another of their watches would be amazing. These are solid well built watches.

  22. Tomer February 26, 2014 at 10:43 pm #

    Very nice idea for a giveaway. The Uzumaki is just beau-ti-ful, while I would appreciate the functionality of the Polygon.
    I still wear a watch nowadays, it's a decade old Pro Trek. Very functional (timer, stopwatch, alarm and even a compass!) and solar powered. Unfortunately the battery is dying too fast now and I should start considering alternatives soon.

    I never heard of Tokyoflash but looking at these watches they are stunning, I would really love to have one of those.

  23. Hugh February 26, 2014 at 10:47 pm #

    Beautiful watches, elegant and esoteric Lately I've seen traditional doors being redesigned and yet still manage to fulfil their purpose by filling a hole in the wall.

    The watches still tell the time - might get a bit of getting used to - in the same way the backwards clock takes a bit of effort.

    Best wishes,

    Hugh

  24. Karl Gephart February 26, 2014 at 10:47 pm #

    Wow, good thing I decided to take a work break and saw this! Count me in, Martin! As long as it has a date feature, I'd love one! It's got that total geek yet elegant look! LOL!

  25. hasman February 26, 2014 at 11:03 pm #

    what a unique watch!, i like how they design this watch to be somewhat specially flashy without being "meh, too flashy" at the same time.
    would like to win one of those!

  26. WandersFar February 26, 2014 at 11:07 pm #

    Cool watches, count me in!

    • WandersFar March 1, 2014 at 2:12 am #

      Having perused all the watches over the last day or so, I can confidently say the XTAL is my favorite, in black with white LEDs.

      Looks like something out of Battlestar Galactica—gold with red LEDs for the old-school Centurions, while black and silver might be something Caprica Six would wear.

      My only criticism is the depth could be a bit slimmer so it lies more flush on the wrist.

  27. RG February 26, 2014 at 11:08 pm #

    Checked their site and the Kisai Seven watch almost looks like a Tron kind of accessory, pretty cool.

  28. Blair Thompson February 26, 2014 at 11:21 pm #

    I love the sandalwood watch you have featured. Still cant work out how you told the time on it!

  29. philipp February 26, 2014 at 11:39 pm #

    i like the eye-catcher

  30. Sam Markel February 26, 2014 at 11:47 pm #

    What a neat company! I appreciate the link to your previous article on Tokyoflash, their watches are right up my alley. Would love to win the giveaway!

  31. Jean Pierre Rojas February 27, 2014 at 12:33 am #

    As much I don't use wristwatch anymore since I use my Android Phone as my watch, this watch changed my view about it once more and I would totally love to have this on my wrist! Why? The designs are unique to the point you can call it a new type of watch! Additionally, it's made by a Japanese Company so it's already a win for me since Japanese Companies are high quality type when it comes to their internationally shipped products, and the standard for technology on Japan is really high so it's a win win for techy guys like me as well. I'm not be stylish since I'm a geek, but with this around my wrist, I'm sure I will get a girl or two's attention to the curiosity of this new type of thing.

    For the given functionality and design of the watch, I must say it will take some time to learn how it works but if it has a manual along with it and not just a box with the watch on it then that would be lovely.

  32. dwarf_t0ssn February 27, 2014 at 12:46 am #

    From a utilitarian standpoint, I love the backlighting of the Uzumaki; I could see it being a decent flashlight in a dark room, in a pinch (Timex Indiglo tends to be bright enough to see whats around you, and this looks similar, if not more advanced and future-y). The watch also appears to be ruggedly constructed, and of quality workmanship.

    I really like the aesthetics of the Uzumaki as well. Has a neat sort of concave bullseye thing going on that, coupled with the colors on the face, lends the whirlpool look that is the apparent theme of the watch. Very visually pleasing effect overall, and it's bound to be a conversation starter as well!

    (count me in for the drawing, thanks!)

  33. Reggie February 27, 2014 at 12:50 am #

    Interesting giveaway, Martin. As a mega-geek, I'd love to try one of these watches. It seems some require a bit of learning curve, but they're very attractive and innovative pieces nonetheless. Having looked at all the watches listed on the TokyoFlash home page, I think that were I to win, I'd opt for the "OTO". I will keep my fingers crossed. Thanks for this most unique giveaway!

  34. Paul(us) February 27, 2014 at 1:05 am #

    Thanks for this give-away and whit that a change to win Martin.
    The Uzumaki feels to me the most stylish watch. Black and silver for the band and green to the inner and outer ring colours, looks to me a great combination. I like the fact that the hours are on the outside and minutes on the inside. Next to that I like the fact that it looks a sturdy watch to me. Quit stylish If I may say so!

  35. Thomas February 27, 2014 at 1:08 am #

    There all pretty nifty, but I especially like the kisai optical illusion. The maze is also cool, and what about having a breathalyser in your watch. If I 'd win, it'll be hard choice, but I'll gladly put aside my sportswatch.

  36. Robbie February 27, 2014 at 1:16 am #

    Loving the look of the Polygon Wood watch!

  37. Ark February 27, 2014 at 1:21 am #

    The Uzumaki looks quite appealing. The black casing catches my eye! Nice giveaway, Martin.

  38. Rovlah February 27, 2014 at 1:36 am #

    I personally liked the Uzumaki more, seemed to make more sense compared to having a combo digital/analog type display.

  39. iverson February 27, 2014 at 1:40 am #

    I like most things that are different. These look great

  40. RossN February 27, 2014 at 2:45 am #

    Styley and Geeky!
    Just like me! And its my birthday in a few weeks. Time to say goodbye to my cheap 25yr old Casio.

  41. BKV February 27, 2014 at 3:41 am #

    You had me at Polygon Wood.
    And as I'm into 3D design, it would certainly complement my work, and be a statement or me.

  42. milithruldur February 27, 2014 at 4:14 am #

    I like that it is not the usual watch design. It is a different watch for a different change of pace that would make people go "wow" when they see one.

  43. Krisada February 27, 2014 at 4:19 am #

    When I lose my watch I unconciously raise my arm and look at my empty wrist all the time. Look up time from phone is so unnatural for me.

    I love analog clock! For me it is easier to understand and calculate time than digital clock, which require you to add and minus number.

  44. rikhub February 27, 2014 at 4:34 am #

    Optical Illusion Time :-)

    http://www.tokyoflash.com/de/watches/kisai/optical_illusion/

    Can you read the time? Test yourself above!

    What I like

    - The Illusion
    - The combination: Silver + Natural LCD

    What's missing

    - Seconds

  45. JohnMWhite February 27, 2014 at 4:53 am #

    They are quite beautiful pieces and I do like the paradigm for reading the Polygon watch. It looks obscure yet is simple once explained, and is an elegant and creative design.

  46. Richard Kennedy February 27, 2014 at 5:09 am #

    Watches that challenge the mind. Now that is something I like!

  47. Ignas February 27, 2014 at 5:17 am #

    I love the creativity applied on tokyoflash watches. And the ritual they give to user.

  48. Vijay February 27, 2014 at 6:06 am #

    Firstly, more than the Giveaway .. thanks for featuring this watch on your site otherwise I probably would have never come across this. I felt its way better than the other geeky watches with funny lights and multi-colored straps. This watch does give the impression that you're a bit of a nerd yet not trying to overtly show-off that you're one. Secondly , the wood speaks class ... nuff said.

    Thanks again

  49. Conan February 27, 2014 at 6:23 am #

    I'd like to enter the giveaway. The designs are simple yet elegant. I've used watches from G-Shock before, but this would be a new sight. ;D

  50. Grissino February 27, 2014 at 6:54 am #

    I like the design and that they are unconventional. The price is also not too high. Obviously these watches are not designed to be used when you need an exact measurement of the time.

  51. trikster February 27, 2014 at 7:23 am #

    I've never heard of Tokyoflash Japan before, thanks for for introducing us :))

  52. Dror February 27, 2014 at 7:23 am #

    Cool, I love it.
    Thanks

    Nice watches! I would love to wear one!
    Thanks

    I owned blue Tokyoflash Oberon for last 5 years and it still working good

    I love their idea " change the way you think about time "

  56. Anita Turak February 27, 2014 at 8:20 am #

    It is a perfect watch for a geek girl like me :)

  57. warlord_x12 February 27, 2014 at 8:44 am #

    Looks unique and stylish. Not bad for the price.

  58. Steven Abeyta February 27, 2014 at 9:00 am #

    Breathtaking. Man, I miss wearing a watch.

  59. Raao Talluri February 27, 2014 at 9:23 am #

    The Polygon Wood LCD Watch looks stylish.I like this one.

    And good giveaway by GHacks Team.
    Best of luck to everyone.

  60. Nebulus February 27, 2014 at 9:35 am #

    I must admit that even though I wear a normal, plain and boring watch, the Polygon Wood LCD Watch impressed me by its "alien" design. It looks extremely nice and intriguing at the same time! I'd love to get one :)

  61. Paul February 27, 2014 at 9:46 am #

    Had not heard of these before, many thanks for 'enlightening' me!

  62. angu February 27, 2014 at 9:58 am #

    case made of dark sandalwood, great idea !

    Just when I was thinking about buying a Rorschach.
    Who knows, maybe I'll get it for free.

  69. Srap February 27, 2014 at 10:47 am #

    That Uzumaki looks good... I like how those rings are painted, it's easier to read the time compared to most watches with clock hands, what comes handy for sleepyheads like me :D

  70. Donald Baker February 27, 2014 at 11:17 am #

    The Polygon Wood LCD Watch really grabbed my attention. The light weight and wooden case is to me very unusual and unique. This appeals to my taste of been different to the masses. Please include me in the draw.

  71. Sunny February 27, 2014 at 12:08 pm #

    WOW, it's GREAT .
    Please include me , too .

  72. Sivasankar S February 27, 2014 at 12:50 pm #

    Unique design . I hope i get one of those....

  73. tinwheeler February 27, 2014 at 1:53 pm #

    HUH, these young whippersnapper's never ask me for the time anymore. Just give me one of those watches and I'll show 'em.

  74. Cadenza February 27, 2014 at 2:49 pm #

    A new twist to look at old subjects revive interest.

  75. Super Man February 27, 2014 at 3:05 pm #

    That design on the Uzumaki is awesome I have not worn a watch for sometime now but man I would wear that one. please put my name in.

  76. Psidium February 27, 2014 at 3:23 pm #

    Well, I'm hoping to get one of these innovative watches. I think they are a real move away from the traditional type.
    My current Casio watch was purchased in 1981, oh and yes I can prove it! It still keeps accurate time, but when I
    have to adjust the time, that means I take off the back screw cover, as the buttons don't work anymore.
    Anyway here's hoping I'm lucky

  77. wendy clark February 27, 2014 at 3:39 pm #

    These watches are great design pieces--the polygon is especially attractive

  78. Eru Kami February 27, 2014 at 4:26 pm #

    Both watches look pretty interesting, although if someone looked from afar, they would just see them as a cheap watch in my opinion.

    I like the concept of the Uzumaki, but it just looks like one of those cheap toy watches for kids. Changing the time seems like it would be interesting to do.

    The Polygon is definitely a cool watch. It would take some getting used to in determining the time, but after the first times, it would become second nature to just look at it and tell the time.

    To bad neither operates off a rechargeable battery like a lot of the other ones on the site do. They do predict they will last for 12 months though, which is not bad for the watch types.

  79. Dave February 27, 2014 at 4:45 pm #

    Besides beautiful, they're actually FUN! Digital is so boring, love the looks of these!

  80. toto_student February 27, 2014 at 5:12 pm #

    Hey,
    I have been watching the production from tokyo flash, and I loved the way they had reinvented the way to display time!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    Cheers,
    Toto

  81. Seth February 27, 2014 at 5:20 pm #

    WOW! Stunning watches, although I like the sandalwood Polygon watch, because triangles are a strong structural and design element. the color and leather strap are just over the top!

    Being a tech geek, I am AWED! The designers of this TokyoFlash watch have created a huge winner!

    How I'd totally love to win one of these!!!

    MArtin, thanks for the reviews you are so assiduous in producing and analyses. I particularly loved your recent one about when the news or creative writing juices dry up (which they do!). Thanks from a very junior wannabe!

  82. Long February 27, 2014 at 5:21 pm #

    I have been dreaming for this for a while.

  83. Mike Weaver February 27, 2014 at 5:30 pm #

    Thank-you. This would be cool!

  84. Bryan February 27, 2014 at 5:47 pm #

    Yes - Polygon wood LCD watch! Super cool design!

  85. Jerry Chance February 27, 2014 at 5:53 pm #

    Wow Martin!

    This must be the quirkiest giveaway you've ever offered. What else have you got up your sleeve I wonder!? Anyway, count me in. I'm not a geek, but I do love quirky!!

    Take care

    Love, Light and Peace

    JC

  86. Rosie February 27, 2014 at 5:54 pm #

    The Polygon Wood LCD Watch is very interesting. I think that it would make a great conversation piece. I am sure that watch collectors would love to have one of each of the watches for their collection.

  87. Gemini February 27, 2014 at 6:01 pm #

    I love how these watches all have their own unique way of telling the time, adds a certain geek factor.
    Would love to win one.

  88. Clark February 27, 2014 at 6:40 pm #

    Thanks for giving me a chance of winning one.

  89. mickay February 27, 2014 at 7:34 pm #

    I really like these wooden watches. It's an unique combination of modernity with stylish wood.

  90. Jason February 27, 2014 at 8:30 pm #

    I still don't understand how to read the time from these watches, but heck, it looks stylish so count me in!

  91. Doug February 27, 2014 at 9:05 pm #

    Nice Watches.
    I would love to have one to baffle my friend how I can tell the time.

    Very cool watches. I have favorite watch to wear and like buying them as gifts for people. Helps keep them on time I hope... lol

    I wonder whether TokyoFlash has considered adding a bluetooth module such that the watches could communicate with smart phones. Even just having some sort of alert on the watch when there are notifications on the phone would be really helpful. Especially, these are geek's watches.

    Uzumaki seems to be good. The polygon is out of the question. Too tricky to use it everyday.

    it would be very nice to add this watch to my collection hope I win

    Tokyoflash is the same as gHacks - unique and useful for everyday use! Thank you Martin for everything!

    I wanted to try them.

    Love the look of these! Sad about the no date on it, but still, stunning and interesting and sleek. Love the OTO one.

    Kinda funny that what you like about watch is it's "Not too difficult to tell time", but I guess it's the price of being different.

    Woow! This is cool. I would like to win the wooden one! Watches are better than porn!

    As long as it is easy to tell time with, Im in:)

    Watches....no matter what they look like...need to Die.

    Just like Cable Tv service, Bottled Water, Switches (you know, the one where you have to get up from your comfort zone and walk all the way to the wall and turn it off), fax machines (yes they still exist), Advertisements (the billboards, magazine ads, tv ads)....they just need to move on.

    Like the calc watch. Remember those? omg, what a gimmick. Just plain marketting.

    Hey, with a watch like these I could impress my pupils as they certainly haven't seen these before. And I would go for "Polygon Wood" - I like the idea of how to read the time.

    After perusing Tokyoflash's website, it's hard to pick a favorite! But there were probably only two I would be most interested in purchasing:

    1) Rogue Touch Pocketwatch - if you want your timepiece to catch people's attention, it's pretty easy to do that with a pocketwatch nowadays. I sometimes get tired of wearing wristwatches because I don't like to wear anything on my wrists while typing (but I'm typing all the time!), but with a pocketwatch I wouldn't have to worry about that.

    2) X Acetate White - I personally find this watch aesthetically pleasing because of its white bracelet, and like that it has a rechargeable battery! (I am also amused that the display reminds me of the device on Predator's arm from the movies haha.)

    Very unique looking watches that will definitely be a conversation starter.

    I really like the Kisai Rogue Touch LED Watch in blue. It has a really cool look to it and the blue color is a great blue. I also like that it has a touch screen too.

    hope im not too late, thanks for this neat giveaway.

  108. Peter D March 1, 2014 at 12:56 am #

    tres chic.

  109. Ditosoft March 1, 2014 at 3:02 am #

    Great giveaway... The Kisai Maru lcd Silver (or black) is (for me) the most have. Functional, light, clear and not "to much in the edge" ;)
    Thank

    The quintessential e-Ink always-on Rorschach silver model is just perfect - it would match my sparkly spandex cosplay Watchmen pants to a T, when I can find them, and my face mask can mimic it for party tricks. The triple degrees of difficulty settings can be used to match my protagonistic violent mood swings -- besides, I need a new cause to match my considerable prowess. Who else but one of the Watchmen to give a watch - the 6th "Greatest Comic Book Character of All TIME" [*1] - huh huH HUH?

    PS: I'm not really Rorschach

    My husband dreams about one of them. It would be a nice gift

    Feeling Lucky :)

      NOTHING I'VE EVER SEEN CAN OUT DO THESE WATCHES. IT WOULD GET ME TO WEAR A WATCH AGAIN AFTER
      15 YRS.

  113. jon March 2, 2014 at 12:52 am #

    Wow, some great looking futuristic watches there! I'd love one.

  114. Grantwhy March 2, 2014 at 12:26 pm #

    What I like about those watches?

    *looks at the tokyoflash site*

    They are just so different :-)

    If by some chance I win, I'll have to get my niece (12) and nephew (10) to work out which one is 'the coolest'.

    I like the Kisai Space Digits Wood LCD Watch, but there is something fun looking about the Kisai Rogue Touch Pocket Watch.

  115. Ray March 3, 2014 at 11:15 am #

    I love to take part :] The design is so clean, that's what I like about them!

  117. charliechan March 4, 2014 at 11:02 am #

    Am I too late? Their watches seem like a really neat concept!

  118. Ricardo March 4, 2014 at 10:11 pm #
