I don’t think I know a single person who doesn’t love Tokyo Flash watches, but then, I don’t think I know a single person who actually knows how to read the time on one of their famously-complicated watch faces.
The Japanese company has a new model out, ‘Kyokusen’, which has apparently been inspired by Tokyo, as shown through the digital tubes, curved lines and bright lights. ‘Kyokusen’ means ‘curved lines’ in Japanese, and describes the shape of the main display, where each segment of the ‘L’ shaped tube indicates an hour, and the circular lights display the minutes. There’s a couple of different colour combinations you can choose from, if you’re wanting to fork out the ¥13,900 (£58.60) for one – either a black body and black leather strap with blue or green lights, or a silver body and mottled leather strap with multi coloured lights. Good luck trying to work out the time on this one.
