Reading the time on Tokyoflash Kisai Sequence LED Watch is pretty straight forward in regular mode, the hours are displayed at the top part (upper half of the screen), you can read them from left to right. The minutes are displayed at the bottom part (lower half), you can read them the same way as the hours. However, you can choose to display the time in cryptic mode so that you are the only person who can read the time, because you know the secret. It is constructed with custom made curved acrylic lens, sub-surface digital tube LEDs that create a pattern of raised cubes.
Kisai Sequence is available at the special release price of $109 (€79, £65) for 48 hours – until Friday July 11th at 11:00 am Japan time. Regular price will be $159.
The cryptic mode looks like unreadable code where actually it displays the same digital numbers except that the middle line of the number is removed. Now that you have this information, we’re pretty sure you won’t have any problem reading the time when the watch is in cryptic mode. This is not always-on watch, you need to press a button to activate the LED display. In the mean time, when there’s no time to display, it looks pretty cool, a modern watch with continuous alternating pattern of cubes, dark and mysterious.
