The Tokyo flash Robot concept design watch is I think the favourite of all the the company’s designs I’ve covered so far.
It’s spacey and modern, without being too much of a cliche. It’s minimalism I think takes the Tokyoflash Robot away from being a cartoonish imagining of the future. Or, as can often be the case, a re-imagining of what the future was going to be from the near past of the 1960s. The sort of thing you could slot into the movie ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’, yet not be seen dead in.
The one thing I’d like to see in this watch would be the ability to change the colour of the display.
I cover how you tell the time on the Robot watch a little further down the page, but I have to say, for the first time I didn’t need the help, I could tell the time from the picture at the top of this story. I must be getting a Tokyoflash kind of ‘timemindset’.
I like the watchband too. It reminds me a little of the tracks on a moon buggy.
You can comment on its design aspects on the Tokyoflash blog. And who knows, they may well go ahead and make this watch move from concept to a product you can actually buy.
How do you tell the time on the Tokyoflash Robot?
As ever, the helpful folk have published a picture that explains how the elements of time have been broken down on the watchface – see the picture below.
