Tokyoflash Japan's Kisai On Air Acetate has a surprisingly readable LCD touchscreen

New, 5 comments

Tokyoflash Japan's Kisai On Air Acetate features a monochrome LCD with a single clock hand that tells the hour by its position and the minute by the numbers it's made up of. The interface is driven by touch and has features like slide-to-unlock and the ability to set the time by rotating your finger in a circle.

Tokyoflash Japan is infamous for its abstract watches that are almost impossible to read without a manual — just look at the Kisai Rogue Touch Pocket Watch as one example — but the company's latest offering seems uncharacteristically user-friendly, if not exactly conventional. The Kisai On Air Acetate features a monochrome LCD with a single clock hand that tells the hour by its position and the minute by the numbers it's made up of. (Spoiler alert: the time in the above image is 10.20.) The simple interface is driven by touch and looks very logically designed, with nice features like slide-to-unlock and the ability to set the time by rotating your finger in a circle. It's available now in navy blue or white for $159, but if you order before 9.30pm ET on Friday you get $20 off and free shipping.
