Another unusable Tokyo Flash watch – Barcode Black


barcodeblack.jpgIf you don’t really need to know what the time is, Tokyo Flash watches are for you.

Confusing, bewildering, based on binary and quite often featuring no actual numbers at all, the cult watch-maker’s timepieces aren’t for people that need to know what the time is in a hurry.

Look at that thing. What time is? 2:15? Or is the right column for the hours? Do you add them all up? Maybe that’s the date? Has it even got enough lights to do a whole day? How do you know if it’s right? What about seconds?

At least it looks cool and will impress geeks within a 50 metre radius, which is what it’s really meant for.
