Tokyoflash ditches tradition yet again with Kisai Satellite watch

How many different ways can a wristwatch display the time? So many ways, as fully evidenced by the ever-inventive folks at Tokyoflash Japan. Their latest offering is the Kisai Satellite, a USB-rechargeable watch that relies on three flashing “halos” to display the time in a manner that’s slightly less confusing than some of the company’s other watches, but still confusing enough to confound anyone asking you for the time. What’s more, unlike some of Tokyoflash’s concept watches, this one is actually available (for just over $90), and in your choice of black or white with either blue or green LEDs.
