    I only recently discovered these interesting watches which take truly electronic timepieces into the future. I have just ordered their radar watch, but I was tempted by the geomesh and the C version gun metal watches.

    I decided to also buy the geomesh watch as I noticed some options in terms of case and led colors have already sold out, so thought that I had better get one (silver case and blue leds) before they were all gone. The geomesh watch should be easy enough to read as it uses hours (12 leds), 5 minute multiple blocks (12 leds) and minutes 1 to 4 (4 leds) which give you any time reading to the nearest minute using a 4 x 4 led matrix. Only a 12 hour watch as pm and am should be obvious without needing the watch to show it. However the low cost Chinese watch seen below uses an extra led to indicate am or pm which is somewhat similar in conceptual layout to the C version watch from Tokyo Flash, but is not as stylish as the latter in my opinion.

    That was quick, both the radar and geomesh “Tokyo Flash” watches arrived today, they were ordered from Japan on the 8th. Beautifully packed in double boxes, a stout cardboard shipping box outer and a swish silver and black presentation box inside that looks very stylish, just like the watches themselves.

    This watch is their TRON watch, but not promoted as such on their product listing page https://www.tokyoflash.com/en/watches/kisai-seven
    I loved that movie and the sequel, mainly for the vision rather than the plot and the TRON watch captures the look perfectly.

    The TRON (7 led) watch arrived today. Only white led and blue led versions of the TRON watch are remaining as the red led version has already sold out. I decided on the blue as the first movie has that electric blue look whereas in the sequel there was the dazzling white "piping". A tour de force of creating a believable and yet completely imaginary landscape.

    Re: Tokyo Flash / Kisai watches

    The blue and white LED versions of the Kisai Seven are the "standard" edition colors. Red was a limited edition version only available for about a year and a half starting around February 2014. There were also two ultra-limited LED colors with just 10 watches made in each color, given away as contest prizes in summer through early autumn of 2013 (yellow, and green). My web searches have not revealed any subsequent photos or info about the ultra-limited color watches or their owners.

    I have the red and the blue versions, and I like them. But-

    Warning to anyone seeking the Kisai Seven: if you have large wrists you might find it uncomfortable or unwearable. Tokyoflash advertises them as fitting from 100 - 210 mm wrist circumference (about 4 in. - 8 1/4 in.), but there's another restriction that they don't mention. Because the case has bends that go around the sides of the wrist, and there's only about 2 1/4 inches between the two sides, if you have a wrist wider than that, it won't fit well. My wrist is only 7 1/4 in. around, but 2 1/2 in. wide in its natural state. I can wear the watches for a while but they start to get uncomfortable after a few hours because of the side-to-side squeeze. I have seen posts and eBay listings by other owners who sold theirs because they simply couldn't wear them.

    Here's the blog post of the original design, that got so much attention they decided to produce it:

    Re: Tokyo Flash / Kisai watches

    Dunzdeck, I think one of us is confused. The Kisai Seven hasn't even existed for "over a decade". The concept design was first published in October of 2010, less than 9 years ago. It took about a year from then, before the product was released for sale. Maybe you're referring to one of the other designs posted above? If so, you might tell us which one.

    Actual wrist shots of the Kisai Seven:

    This seems to be a very small person.

    This looks like someone with wrists like mine, who can just barely wear it.

    If this one seems familiar, it appears in post #6 above also.
