Negative is the latest addition to the steadily growing stream of stylish timepieces from the famous Japanese watch importer. This new model is described as “one of the most sophisticated designs available from Tokyoflash.”
Available in polished silver or polished black, Negative’s LCD screen is always displaying the time, allowing the wearer to read it with a quick glance. What really brings this design to life is its multi color LED light guide. At the touch of a button, the display can be backlit with one of seven user selectable colors, a feature which is most impressive at night.
With the additional style and luxury of a solid stainless steel band, Negative also has an abundance of features, including a vertical or horizontal display option, several alarm functions, 12/24 hour mode and multi-color mode, sending all LED colors into a frenzy when the backlight is activated.
The display presents the time in negative space, the unlit squares on the screen showing digital numbers, highlighted by the bright squares around them. This creates a subtle optical illusion effect, giving the watch a unusual mystique, unlike those using standard digital displays.
Negative is available from the Tokyoflash website for ¥16,900 (about $160 USD).
Some pretty flashy product development work went into that one — but will you be able to tell time with it? And will it be comfortable?
Yes Dennis, that’s the question – but it sure looks good. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!
