We had already discussed the Kisai Kaidoku, the newest gadget from Japanese watch brand Tokyoflash. We have it now in hand, so here’s a little review of this new Japanese gadget!
First things first: The Kisai Kaidoku obviously has an original way to tell time, but is less complex than some Tokyoflash watches. I also think it is one of the easiest Tokyoflash watches because you just have to read the time in full words on the dial! Indeed, the dial is filled with number words, and just read those flashing to know the time. Easy!
The Kisai Kaidoku is different from other models from Tokyoflash for several reasons: first, the strap is leather, which changes from the usual metal bracelets or acetate (although I personally prefermetal and acetate). Then, this model is one of the few which you do not need to press a button to display the time, in fact, it is always displayed and can be backlit with a button. Finally, the Kaidoku also has an alarm function, which is unusual on a Tokyoflash. The case is steel with engraved “Kisai”, covered with a glass with black borders.
After trying the Kaidoku for several days: the bracelet and the case are comfortable, and you read the time quickly and easily after a short time of use. It necessarily has a huge success for its originality! Only bad point: the backlight is not very powerful and makes reading a bit difficult in the twilight (but no problem in the dark)
