Inspired by aviation and automotive themes, The new Tokyo Flash Kisai Blade features a custom made turbine-style lens beneath which digital tube LEDs rotate like a propellor to display the time in an easy to read way.
The watch is available in a range of colors and with a choice of stainless steel or leather strap, Kisai Blade has two time modes, date mode, alarm, light-up animation and is USB rechargeable. With blue, green or red LEDs, Kisai Blade is framed by an industrial-looking sandblasted stainless steel case with brushed detail. There are two time displays programmed into Kisai Blade. Press the upper button to display the time.
In turning mode, the LED blades spin around the face highlighting three blades in turn which indicate the hour and minutes. It’s super easy to follow if you imagine the blades as numbers on a clock.
In flashing mode, the LED blades show hours and minutes at a glance. The lit blade indicates the hour, the flashing blade indicates 5 minute groups and four dots indicate exact minutes 1-4.
You can choose your preferred display mode in the settings.
What really brings this watch design to life is its character enhancing animation. When turned on, the vivid LED blades rotate rapidly like a jet engine once every 15 minutes between 6pm and midnight.
The date can be viewed in the same way as the time by pressing the upper button twice. You can choose whether the date is show as DD:MM or MM:DD. The watch also has an alarm mode.
Kisai Blade is USB rechargeable. To recharge, connect to your computer with the USB cable provided. One full charge will take 3.5 hours and each charge should last 1 month.
