Sense the atmosphere and feel the noise as you step towards the decks. The lights are low as you mix your beats but something bright catches your eye. Kisai RPM, revolutionary timing.
A DJ Themed USB Rechargeable LED Watch
Now in gold with red LEDs, this limited edition version of the popular Kisai RPM watch from Tokyoflash Japan will really make you stand out.
The curved, smoked lens that runs around the edge of the disc creates a subtle reflection before you touch the button to illuminate the rings of digital tube LEDs that display the time.
Simple to read at a glance, hours are shown on the inner ring in the same position as hours on a clock. Five minute intervals are shown on the outer ring in the same position as minutes on a clock. Four single minutes are positioned at the top of the display along side the AM/PM indicator. Lights showing the current time will flash for several seconds to direct you.
For more information, take a look at the video demonstration above. A PDF user manual is also featured above which includes more detailed information about this watch.
Turntable Style LED Light Up Animation
As well as time, RPM has a cool light-up animation which sends lights spinning around the display once every 15 minutes from 6pm to midnight.
Kisai RPM is USB rechargeable via your computer. One full charge will take 3.5 hours and each charge will last 1 month. There are 300 charges in one battery and the battery is replaceable.
In February 2010, Tokyoflash opened its Design Studio Blog to showcase its concept designs and request ideas for new watch designs from fans. The idea for Kisai RPM was submitted by James Fursedon and was voted as one of the most popular designs by fans. This is the first concept submitted by a fan to become reality. Find out more about the original concept here.
Kisai RPM is a unisex watch and has a fully adjustable strap to fit large or small wrists.
Like all watches from Tokyoflash Japan it is a limited edition design which means that it is guaranteed to be an original watch that not many other people own.
Blog reader & watch designer James Fursedon, from the UK says:
I'm really pleased with the way this watch has turned out, the design team have done an amazing job. I have no artistic skills whatsoever but had a concept in my head that I hoped would be worthy of being featured on the blog. I sent in a few short paragraphs of how I thought the watch should look and work and kept my fingers tightly crossed!
I was so excited to see my concept on the design studio blog, I recognised it immediately but was blown away by the little touches and design flares that had been added to make it so special. Now, 9 months later, to see my watch idea in production and on sale from my favourite watch shop is unbelievable, a dream come true!
Thank you Tokyoflash, thank you to everyone who commented and voted on the blog and thank you to every one who buys one! I can't wait to see a stranger wearing this watch and will surely buy them a pint! - James
