Kisai Stencil from Tokyoflash Japan is an intuitive watch design with a brand new custom designed stainless steel case and leather strap.
Visually artistic, the colored LCD display shows the time in negative space, a technique that appears cryptic at first but is actually very simple to read.
With time and date functions, alarm and EL backlight for night time, Kisai Stencil was originally a concept on the Tokyoflash Design Studio Blog.
Easy to read at a glance, Kisai Stencil has an always on LCD display in a choice of five different colors.
At first the display appears to be a pictograph of lines and dots, however, if you look at the background, you can clearly see the digital time: hours in the upper half of the screen, minutes in the lower half of the screen shown in negative space. A clever idea that plays tricks with the mind, but is easy to read once you know how.
In February 2010, Tokyoflash Japan opened its Design Studio Blog to showcase concept designs and request ideas for new watch designs from fans. The idea for Kisai Stencil was submitted by Heather Sable from the USA and was voted as one of the most popular designs by fans. This is the fifth concept submitted by a fan to become reality.
