Tokyo Flash's Kisai Uzumaki Marks the Flow of Time with Swirling Vortex Hands

By Andrew Tarantola on at

Japanese watchmaker Tokyo Flash has just released its newest user-designed timepiece. It may not be as famous (yet) as a certain other Uzumaki but it's certainly just as awesome.

Uzumaki comes from the Japanese word for whirlpool and is named so for the watch lens' descending concentric circles. The hands also descend into the centre of the watch—the hour hand is one the outside edge; the minute's on the inside. Its stainless steel construction allows it to be submerged to as many as three atmospheres, while the back light helps your time-telling in the dark.

This is the sixth user-submitted concept to be released by the Tokyo Flash guys, and it's available in either stainless steel or black with a blue or green display. The limited-edition analogue watch retails for £80 on the Kisai website, however, the company is running a launch promo for the next 48 hours and is knocking it down to £61.
