Kisai X Acetate White LED Watch

Kisai X Acetate LED watch

Sharp lines of LED light shining through the smoked mineral crystal lens appear to be a secret code. They are in fact regular numbers that present the digital time in an easy to read way. Inspired by cryptography, the Kisai X Acetate watch features time, date, alarm and animation mode. Can you decode the time?

The Digital Time in a Clever, Uncomplicated Form

The time is read from top to bottom (hours) and left to right (minutes). The four digits of time are stylised in a visually dynamic way. A 12/24 hour time option is programmed into Kisai X Acetate so you can choose the format that suits you best. See the graphic below to the right to see if you can crack the code.

Kisai X Acetate Watch, Made from a Light, Deep Gloss Material

One of the most attractive features of Kisai X Acetate is its custom made white acetate case and strap. Available with a blue, green or red LED display, the watch is light and comfortable to wear. The black the smoked mineral crystal lens framed by polished stainless steel offers a sleek contrast.

A Digital Watch Design with Time, Date, Alarm and Animation

As well as time, Kisai X Acetate has date and alarm modes which can be accessed by pressing the lower button. The date is read in the same way as the time from top to bottom (month) and left to right (date).

When animation mode is activated, the display will animate once every 10 minutes between 6pm and midnight. This can be turned on or off in the settings. See the video below to see the effect.

A USB Rechargeable Watch for Longer Battery Life

Kisai X Acetate uses a rechargeable battery so you don't need to worry about battery replacement. Just connect to your computer for a few hours to charge and one full charge will last around a month.

Cool Acetate Watches - A Special Material Choice

Acetate is a special material used in the production of high end sunglasses and other fashion accessories.

Manufactured in the same way as stainless steel, each part of this LED watch design, including each link that makes up the strap has been carefully hand cut, machined and individually polished before assembly.

A strong material with a deep gloss that can be cleaned easily, Acetate has a silky finish, similar to ceramic or lacquerware and is light and comfortable to wear, making it ideal for wrist watches.

In February 2010, Tokyoflash Japan opened its Design Studio Blog to showcase concept designs and request ideas for new watch designs from fans. The idea for Kisai X was submitted jointly by Firdaus Rohman from Malaysia and Heather Sable from the USA. This is the eleventh concept submitted by a fan to become reality. Find out more about the original concept on the Tokyoflash Design Studio Blog.

Blog readers & watch designers Firdaus Rohman and Heather Sable say:

"From Malaysia to the US, realized in Japan. This is a story of a watch design - from concept to reality. How cool is that?! The Tokyoflash Design Studio blog has transcended the barrier of continent, nation and races to realize a wonderful watch design for the world.

We, the co-designers, thank all of the supporters, from inside and outside, throughout the process - from the blog, to the design studio, to the factory, to marketing, to the delivery guy, and finally to the buyers of Kisai X. As you decode the time, you own a product full of inspiration."
