Tokyoflash Kisai RPM Acetate Watch

I love LED lights, but most times they are so bright I can hardly stand to look at them. There have been a lot of watches coming out lately with LED lights, but they illuminate so well it can almost be hard to read sometimes. Not to mention they often look a little silly. That’s why I was glad to see the Tokyoflash Kisai RPM Acetate Watch that takes care of all of my concerns.

This watch is built out of a very strong, glossy material called acetate, which houses a series of blue LED lights that are shielded behind some smoked glass. It looks very minimalistic with an empty watch face when it’s not lit up, and is reminiscent of the movie Tron. Every part of this wrist enhancement device has been hand cut, machined, and polished for your viewing pleasure. Unlike most watches, this uses a USB cable to charge its battery, and takes about 3.5 hours. This will last you about a month and is much more convenient than having to throw regular batteries away on a more constant basis. This special battery is good for 300 charges, so it should last about 25 years.

It’s a little costly at $159.99, but that’s pretty good to some other watches out there that are in the thousands. To tell time, the inner ring represent the hours, while the outer ring represents the minutes in five minute increments. The individual minutes are displayed with the use of the smaller LEDs on the outer ring at the top.


  • I think the people at Tokyoflash are brilliant in coming up with their endless stream of new ways to display time. This is another fine example and I don't think it's overpriced at all. The website shows the sterling price to be 97.82 and in euros it's 111.43. The watch I'm wearing today cost about twice that. This Kisai RPM acetate watch is also available in other colours. If I were in the market for a new watch at the moment this would definitely be on the short list.

  • Ya me too. Think they are very well priced for such a limited run. They are the only company who is coming out with new forward thinking designs.
