Optical Illusion LED Watch Design

A new concept from the Tokyoflash Design Studio.

This watch design is for you if you like a little challenge.  The time is displayed as an optical illusion – you can train your eyes to see the hidden numbers through the green and black maze.  Just press the button and see the green LEDs animate to light up the whole face and show you time in 4 big digits – no counting required.

If you can’t see the time on the standard display, just touch the button and the background will fill to outline the individual digits. Wow your friends with your amazing sixth sensory powers.

  1. Now this takes me back. I used to own a few posters like this back in my teens. We would stand in the mall and try to decipher the images. This is nice; hope you continue with this.

  2. Tokyoflash was always meh in my book until I saw this concept. I’d preorder this sight unseen today if it’s under $200. Hell, make it one for each wrist.

  4. I will buy this watch in a heartbeat, provided the physical properties don’t change any by the time it goes production. That simple, elegant, smooth and sleek, clean look is really appealing to me!

    • So what you are saying is AS IS? Any other comments on the case design? Cheap and plastic or more expensive and Stainless? How about aluminum case? What color LCD?

      • Make it cheap. There are barley any good, let alone stunning like this one, digital watches that don’t cost ridiculous amounts of money.

      • Don’t listen to Tim’s response. Please don’t make it cheap. I am a businessman and I want to wear it myself. If you make it cheap I would probably not even buy it for a child. I would want it to be heavy and durable. I like the green. I think green would suit it best. But I do agree with the original comment that it should be kept nearly the same as far as design. When can I buy two (In case I ever break the first one)?

  5. love this watch. black stainless looks good.
    It would be great to be able to dynamically change the color of the display (even if blue seems to be the best color to me).
    There should also be a way to display the date (possibly replacing the 4 digits by the day and month numbers).
    and also a way to switch the display off (when not needed).

  6. Watches are my jewelry and I am very fussy about which ones I buy. I have a small collection and this would definitely be one of them were it ever produced. Please make this watch! Can’t make up my mind if I would buy one in green or orange if both were available. Brilliant concept, perfectly realised.

  7. Just saw the question above from the designers. I would like the design as is without any modifications as I don’t mind paying quite a bit for my watches. You might sell more of them though with a plastic strap at a cheaper price. As for the colours… Orange and Green demand to be noticed, which a watch like this should be. The grey one shown is more understated and might have a market. Blue or red, don’t think it would work. Yellow could work.

    The must i think for this watch :

    – A little bit more expensive just for a black alluminium deisgn
    – and the color for the lcd : green , purple, red , blue ( cyan)

    For the price : between 75€ and 100 € maximum

  11. I’ll repeat what so many said just above: awesome.
    It really pushes the concept of ‘my watch truly gives the time, but you probably won’t understand it’.

    Whereas other watch designs felt like displaying coded information, this one really does show the time, only hidden :).

    I really hope the concept gets through to production, I’ll buy one for sure, well actually 2, the second being a gift.

  12. I would by it (depending on the price) if it still hurts my sight when i try to read the time, It’s simply beautyful, and those colours (sigh)

  13. DON’T CHANGE A THING! I actually went to the other watches to see if any had this same band design or casing and I was dissapointed I love the ovals and the futuristic links look. The greena nd black neon is the hottest screen i’ve ever seen, concept is out of this world. If the screen is as big as the design makes it look, hell if it’s bigger! I’m buying at least ten of these, no matter the cost.

    Materials wise it would be nice to go with something light to keep the price down… Maybe make a second limited edition pimp version in platinum or something
