The limited edition Optical Illusion watch from Tokyoflash Japan features an 'always on' LCD display that shows the time digitally. With a touch screen display, the watch has time and date, alarm, EL backlight, animation and a unique optical illusion so that the time can be viewed through a maze of high resolution lines.
Optical Illusion is a stainless steel watch design with a mineral crystal lens, available in black or silver with a natural or green display.
Featuring touch screen technology, the display has four hot zones that you can simply touch with your finger to navigate between the four main functions; time (in hours and minutes) date (month and date), alarm and EL backlight; a function which illuminates the display making it easier to read at night time. It's intuitive, simple and fun to operate.
Optical Illusion has an animation mode. When activated, the watch will automatically transition between puzzle mode and digital time mode every 20 seconds. This is a very useful option which allows you to see the time in digits at intervals and will also catch people's attention.
Each part of Optical Illusion has been custom designed and manufactured, including the case, strap and uniquely programmed LCD display. The custom made LCD panel, with more than 1500 segments is the most complex watch display created to date; an engineering feat that took more than 12 months to research and develop.
Optical Illusion has an adjustable strap making it suitable for small and large wrists and uses a standard CR2025 watch battery which will last around 12 months and can be replaced easily. Like all watches from Tokyoflash Japan it is a limited edition design which means it is guaranteed to be an original watch that not many other people own.
This watch comes in an exclusive gift box, designed and made in Japan. It features graphics of iconic watches from Tokyoflash Japan past and present on a red background.
Optical Illusion displays the time digitally, hours in the upper half of the screen, minutes in the lower half of the screen. Just touch the screen to reveal the time. You can also train your eyes to see the time through the optical illusion. Like many optical illusions, it's really easy to see once you know how. The direction of the lines in the display allow your eyes and brain to process only the lines that make up the digits to reveal the time in hours and minutes.
