(English) Design submitted by Logan from the USA.
Logan says: “Inspired by Tokyoflash R75, I revised a previous idea to have both binary and 12-5-9 display modes.
Kamisori has a unique shape that reminds me of a multi-bladed razor, hence the name. The two columns of six prisms on the case are tilted in different directions, and the prisms continue around the strap. Each of the twelve prisms on the case has one smoked acrylic face through which either a red or green LED shines. The other faces of the prisms, and the rest of the watch, are made from black-coated aluminum (like Denshoku). (In other words, the whole prism doesn’t light up, just one of the faces, which increases readability.)
Time can be displayed either in binary mode (hours in red, minutes in green), or in 12-5-9 mode (show hours first, then tens of minutes, then single minutes). In binary mode, there is an option for 12-hour or 24-hour display, and, with the 24-hour option selected, the hour LED with a value of 16 can be lit.
If you love binary, this is a great watch. If you hate binary watches, you can still love the shape and use the 12-5-9 display mode.
Putting a lens on only one face of each prism results in a unique lighting effect, quite different than if the entire prism were to light up. None of the current Tokyoflash watches have this “directional” style of lighting. The overall shape of the watch is also very distinctive.”
