TokyoFlash recently released another watch in their expanding lineup of wood-encased (and braceleted) watches. This latest one, the Space Digits Wood, really further underscores the the Seventies Retro-Future vibe. This first and foremost comes from the console-style case, and it’s further underscored by the LCD display.
That display carries the sort of look that you’d expect to see from computer animations of the era, is what it ultimately reminded me of. Perhaps it was just exposure to green-screen drafting stations that set this in mind for me, but that’s really what it reminds me of.
In the display, given the angles of things, it makes it look as if you’re rushing down a Tron-like tunnel. Even with the parallelograms framing the display, it’s still a fairly easy watch to read. You pick up the time reading it from left to right, and the date (no pushing a button to get it to display on this model) is read from top to bottom.
In terms of the wood used for the watch, you’ve got a couple of options – a dark and green sandalwood, or a maple and sandalwood combination. Yes, these watches use two types of wood, creating a laminated bracelet, giving an interesting two-tone look on the sides. It’s something I don’t know I’ve seen any other wooden watch do, so it’s an interesting differentiator.
Styling aside, this is a digital watch with all the bells and whistles you’ve come to expect from TokyoFlash – alarm, backlight, and the like. This one uses a standard watch battery, so no worries about recharging the watch throughout the day. If you’d like to grab one, head on over to URL and bring along a rather reasonable $109 to get your own today. tokyoflash.com
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.
