Do you remember those “magic picture” posters that were all the rage in the mid-90s? Well, TokyoFlash Japan has introduced a new model, the Optical Illusion, that utilizes some similar principles. Unlike those posters, however, there is a button that will allow you to display the time without having to trick your eyes. Read on for the introduction sales special, and the bulk of the press release.
First, the sale. The Kisai Optical Illusion is available at a 48 hour limited time release price of $179 (€132, £115) including free shipping until Friday January 27th at 11:30am (Japan time). After that, it goes to it’s regular price of $199 (€147, £128).
“The limited edition Kisai Optical Illusion watch displays the time digitally through a maze of high resolution diagonal lines. Like many optical illusions, it’s really easy to see once you have trained your eyes. The direction of the lines in the display allows your eyes and brain to process only the lines that make up the digits that show the time.”
Kisai Optical Illusion comes in black or silver with a natural or green LCD display. It has a touch screen display with time, date, alarm, EL backlight and animation. All in all, an interesting twist. We’re looking into obtaining a review sample to give you a better idea of what the watch is like in the real world.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
