The good folks at TokyoFlash just announced the latest creation called the Kisai Broke. The slogan for this new watch is “breaking tradition” and is also their first watch in the line to feature a USB rechargeable battery. The Break watch face gives the effect of broken glass or what I would almost refer too as a “stained glass effect”. The watch rocks a full custom brushed stainless steel casing and smart matching wrist band.
A striking fragmented display, full face mineral crystal lens and a new way to read time that’s almost like a regular clock, features that will make you want to break away from dictated fashion trends.
Like any Tokyoflash watch the reading the display will take some getting used to. The website gives a pretty simple explanation on how to read the time on the Broke, which actually seems to be easier than some of the other non standard products they had in the past.
Reading the time couldn’t be easier. Touch the button and a shattering animation will light up the display. The outer ring of blocks represent hours in the same position as hours on a clock face. The inner ring of blocks represents five minute intervals in the same position as minutes on a clock face. Four single minutes are shown in the center.
