TokyoFlash is Back With An Acetate Console

Posted on 26 March 2014 by Patrick Kansa

Hey, remember back in November when we told you about the Kisai Console from TokyoFlash?  In that post, I talked about how the watch was a perfect mashup of Seventies woodgrain and SciFi conventions on displays.  Well, they went back to the drawing board, and instead, we’ve now got a full on future watch.

The watch is pretty much unchanged from it’s initial version, in terms of functionality.  It’s got a battery that’s rechargeable via USB, it tells you the time, and you can get some nifty animations at night (for the full run-down on things, check out the original post).

In this new iteration, though, gone away is the wood (and woodgrain).  Instead, you get sleek acetate, in the oh-so-futuristic shiny white (seriously – most cheesy scifi films I remember from growing up had rooms made entirely of shiny white surfaces).

Intended or not, this manages to give the watch a much sleeker look, and seems like it makes things a bit more compact.  For those looking to pick up a white-cased watch for the summer, this might be a fun one to play around with.  Move fast, as for the next 12 hours or so, you can pick it up (here) at the introductory price of $99 (after which, I assume it’s going to go up to $129). tokyoflashjapan.com

Watch Overview

  • Brand & Model: TokyoFlash Kisai Console Acetate
  • Price: $99 (introductory; going up to $129)
  • Who we think it might be for: Someone who fashions themselves as a scifi-loving hipster
  • Would I buy one for myself based on what I’ve seen?: While I’ve been known to watch many a starship console on the screen, the white finish on this one makes it a no-go for me
  • If I could make one design suggestion, it would be: I’m glad to see the woodtone swapped out for some more variety – perhaps a darker (or more colorful) acetate finish would be nice
  • What spoke to me the most about this watch: The watch dial that’s straight out of ST:TNG
