Tokyo Watch does unthinkable, releases intuitive-to-read Galaxy watch

GAL001_m.jpg

I’d like to congratulate the obtuse blink mongerers at Tokyo Flash for finally releasing a watch the time-telling of which does not require its wearer to be some kind of frakkin’ Cylon. The new Galaxy watch is housed in a polished silver case and features one of the most straightforward time-reading mechanisms on their site: twelve yellow bars swoop around the face clockwise, lighting up to denote hours. Nestled inside that circle, eleven red bars denote five minute increments, while four green bars indicate single minutes.

I love it. Hey, I could actually read time with this thing without first having to Google up some absurd LED cryptogram! The Galaxy is on sale now for about $133.

    I’ve got two TF watches, I don’t know what you’re talking about, both of them are pretty simple.

    The Eleeno Raito & Orbit, both analog and awesome. Although it’s true, the digital watches from TF are pretty crazy.

    So – I make it 10:38 then. Or nearly twenty to eleven.

    Do I get a prize?
