LED watches

For the longest time I didnít wear a watch. Then I bought a Casio Film Watch off of ebay and got hooked on the retro 70s style. It didnít hurt too, that the watch cost under $30 USD and in return I got tons of compliments from strangers in the street. Now I'm a bit of a watch kick. Here are a few LED watches Iíve been checking out:

This LED watch displays the time in binary. Iím not sure what I like more, the chunky retro shape or the tutorial for how to read it. Still as clever an idea as it is, I canít see myself reading binary at-a-glance, and the background of the inner face plate doesn't appeal to me.

The Ibiza LED watch doesnít display time in binary, but is still not necessarily easier to read. The product description says that at a button press the time is displayed for five seconds! What happens the rest of the time? (Well, there must be a way to conserve battery power, right, but it does not seem too user friendly.)

The LED Colored Lights Watch by Tokyo Time Evolution is my favorite in appearance. It also has the heftiest price tag. Still, it is much cheaper than buying a genuine vintage 70s watch from some online merchants.

That last one is not Tokyo Time Evolution, MOMA have it labeled wrong - Its a PIMP watch & you get them here: http://www.tokyoflash.com/watches1.html

I just checked the Tokyo Flash website and the photo of the PIMP watch looks similar, but it is not the same faceplate.

Jim:

The watch in question is in the tokyoflash museum :

It is exactly the same. I remember when this watch was first released it was silver. then they did black & gold versions.
Try Google for "pimp watch" & click the "images" option.
