Minimal design and a simple, intuitive display make Kisai On Air one of the most attractive watch designs available from Tokyoflash Japan.
Featuring a colored LCD display with touch screen technology, time, date and alarm, Kisai On Air is the fourth concept design submitted by a fan to become reality.
The limited edition Kisai On Air watch is available in four display colors each with LED backlighting. The LCD display is always on so the time can be read at a glance and the LED backlight function means it will light up on demand, a useful function for night time.
The touch screen display has four hot-zones (top, bottom, left, right) which you can simply touch with your finger to change mode; time, date, alarm, light up.
Holding your finger in place for a few seconds allows you to customise; hold your finger over the alarm zone to set the alarm, hold it over the time zone to set the time. It's intuitive, simple and fun to operate.
After 15 seconds the screen will lock to prevent accidental input, however the LED light up function can always be operated. To unlock the display, simply swipe your finger across the screen from left to right. Please see the video at the bottom of the page to see this in action.
On Air's time display is minimal and intuitive. The digital numbers on the screen are the hour hand and point to the current hour in the same was as the hand on a clock. The digits on the screen are the current minutes. Reading the time couldn't be easier.
The date can be read in exactly the same way with the hand pointing to the month and the digital numbers showing the date.
On Air also has an animation feature that can be turned on or off. When activated, the animation will appear once every five minutes.
In February 2010, Tokyoflash opened its Design Studio Blog to showcase its concept designs and request ideas for new watch designs from fans. The idea for Kisai On Air was submitted by Iskender Asanaliev & Adilet Asanaliev from Kyrgyzstan and was voted as one of the most popular designs by fans. This is the fourth concept submitted by a fan to become reality.
