Sense the atmosphere and feel the noise as you step towards the decks. The lights are low as you mix your beats but something bright catches your eye: Kisai RPM, revolutionary timing.
The curved, smoked lens that runs around the edge of the disc creates a subtle reflection before you touch the button to illuminate the rings of digital tube LEDs that display the time.
Simple to read at a glance, hours are shown on the inner ring in the same position as hours on a clock. Five minute intervals are shown on the outer ring in the same position as minutes on a clock and four single minutes are positioned at the top of the display along side the AM/PM indicator. Lights showing the current time will flash for several seconds to direct you.
Ideal for night time, RPM has a light-up animation feature. When activated, the minute lights spin around the display in a clockwise direction once every fifteen minutes between 6PM and midnight.
This design is also USB rechargeable via your computer. One full charge will take 3.5 hours and each charge should last 1 month. There are 300 charges in one battery and the battery is replaceable.
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 RPM was submitted by James Fursedon from the UK and was voted as one of the most popular designs by fans. This is the first concept submitted by a fan to become reality.
