Time telling torture from Tokyoflash
I am sure you can find some geeks out there that wear watches. Many of the watch wearers probably keep wearing a watch more for fashion than any need. I use my iPhone to tell time rather than wear a watch and I haven't had a watch on in years.

If you like fashion watches that skew toward the geeky, Tokyoflash is the place you need to look. You do need to be prepared to learn to read the watch again since the things are all very hard to read for the most part. Tokyoflash has three new watched that it has unveiled today, all in the Kisai series including the Joypad, Transit, and Light Speed.
The Joypad is one of the easier watches to read that I have seen from Tokyoflash and can be had in white or black cases. The number that indicates the hour flashes, the lines in a rectangle shape in the middle show the minutes based on the traditional positions of a normal watch, and the single minutes flash in with the row of squares in the center. It’s cool enough, but complex. You can order the thing now for $93.79.
The next watch is the Transit it is supposed to look like city streets at night I guess. You have to follow the lines on this watch to tell the time. The blue line is the hours, the orange is minutes in blocks of five, and the green are individual minutes. The orange and blue lines have some numbers printed to give you a reference point. The Transit comes in white or black cases for $93.79.
The final watch is the Light Speed It is the cheapest at $81.92 and can be had in black or white colors. The hours flash with line with small numbers, the minutes will flash with the line having crossing large numbers, and the individual minutes are in groups of two with little has marks. If that is confusing, you should see the actual watch.
