The Shinshoku Watch is a really easy to read LED timepiece which will make you look really cool when neighbours, friends and family come a-calling. Honest it will. To be honest it’s no surprise that most of us now prefer using our mobile phones to tell the time. At least they don’t need you to have a Bachelor’s Degree in Modern Stupidity. Or is that churlish? Around $120.00.
On the multi-color LED model the red lights (12) indicate the hour, the green (3) indicate 15 minutes each & the Yellow (14) are 1 minute each. By telling the time in this way it makes it very easy to see if its roughly quarter-past, half-past or quarter-to the hour. With each green LED worth 15 mins; then 2 lit equals 30 mins. The watch is also available in All-Red & All-Green LED if you prefer the single color look. The etched markings on the strap allow you to distinguish between hours & minutes on all versions – but the multi-color version is by far the easiest model to read the time on, especially at night.
