Tokyoflash has announced the Tibida, a watch “combining functional design engineering with LED technology presented in a range of bold colors”.
Tibida expresses three functions through its name; time, binary and date. Created using 42 white LEDs, this design offers three conceptually different ways to tell the time; hour-centric, minute-centric and binary.
Hour-centric mode displays the hour in digits on the lower display and minutes on the upper display, each LED representing a progression of five minutes. Perfect for when you need to know the approximate time quickly.
Minute-centric mode displays the exact minutes in digits on the lower display with the upper display representing the progression of hours using twelve LEDs.
Binary is presented on the upper display only. The top line of six LEDs indicating the hour, the second line indicating minutes. To read the time in binary, refer to the example below. Binary is read from the right, the first lit LED representing the number 1. This is then doubled; 2, 4, 8, 16 and 32, a combination of these numbers representing the time in hours and minutes.
Combining a stainless steel case and clasp with a mineral crystal lens and polyurethane band, Tibida is available in four fashionable styles; polished stainless steel case with either a red, blue or black face or IP black case with an orange face.
Until February 5th 2008, Tibida is available at a special launch price of 12,900 Japanese Yen ($122) including free 5-day worldwide delivery.
