Saishin Retsu Watch

Reading the time is seldom an interesting activity, especially in low light areas where even a backlight may be inadequate. The watch designer Saishin has just released a new model that it claims can address both problems at once. Dubbed the Retsu, the new design uses a single strip of LED lights to display the time in serial fashion, displaying the hour and minutes digit by digit in a way viewable even in total darkness. Saishin's brushed metal design also saves considerable weight: at 40 grams, the Retsu is considerably more comfortable and discrete than other LED watches, according to the company. The Japan-based importer TokyoFlash can ship the watch to North America for the equivalent of $125 US.
