Tokyoflash are back with their latest timepiece, and the Hanko looks to be perhaps the company’s most confusing watch to date. Apparently inspired by a Japanese signature stamp, the Hanko has a polished stainless-steel case and bracelet and twenty-three LEDs hidden under the black acrylic lenses.
To tell the time, you hit the upper right-hand button and, after a quick animation, the LEDs wait mockingly for you to decipher them. Hours are shown in the center circle, groups of five minutes in the middle-circle, and finally single minutes in the outermost circle. If that’s still confusing (and I’m not surprised) then take a look at the diagram in the gallery below.
The Tokyoflash Hanko measures 31 x 37 x 8 mm and weighs 72g; it’s water-resistant to 3ATM. It’s available now, with white, blue or multi-colored LEDs, priced at$99.62.
