TokyoFlash’s Ultimate Geek Watches: Giveaway and Review

Generally, geeks notoriously avoid wearing jewelry, especially male geeks. But there is one exception to this rule: watches. This is probably because watches do not only add an element of fashion to their look, but are actually useful. And if the watch looks especially high-tech, then all the better!

I’m sure you’ve all seen some geeky-looking watches on the Net in recent months. Most technology blogs cover them from time to time, so if you’re following a bunch of them, you ought to have seen a few. Today, I’m not only going to show you 3 amazing watches from a company named TokyoFlash, but I’m also going to give away two of them (an approximate value of $150 each). Keep on reading for all the details.

Watch #1: 1000100101

Contrary to what most people think when looking at its name, this watch is not one which displays time in binary format. As you can see, it has been designed to look like a high-tech device that would fit well on the wrist of a moon base commander. Its surface has a brushed metal look and displays the time by pressing a button on the side of the watch. It then lights up a bunch of bright LEDs. The yellow LEDs on top are used to indicate the day of the week. Under this, the green, red and yellow ones represent the hour of the day. If you press the side button once more, you’ll then get the current date and month. The strap looks very nice, has a leather back and sports durable, carbon-fiber style coating.

Watch #2: S-Mode Oberon IPB + WhiteLED

Once again, our second watch looks very futuristic. The S-Mode Oberon features a very cool looking, full-face, black mineral crystal lens and the wrist strap is stainless steel. It displays time by lighting up a bunch of white LEDs located underneath the lens. All you need to do to get the time is to press the top side button. The LEDs are arranged in three different rings. The outer ring is used to count the hour, the middle ring counts the single minutes and the inner ring displays the minutes in groups of ten. The date can also be read in a similar way by a second touch of the upper button.

Watch #3: Tibida

Our third and final watch will probably please the binary maniacs among you. The Tibida can display time using three methods: hour-centric, minute-centric and binary. Like most TokyoFlash watches, it can also give you the date. Tibida features a nice-looking stainless steel case and a polyurethane wristband. It is available in four colors: red, blue, black or orange. The model we received is red and will probably look nicer on a lady. But that’s just my personal opinion. The LEDs on the Tibida are extra bright, and I almost got blind after looking at it for the first time. Ok, maybe I’m exaggerating a bit, but yes, they are noticeably brighter than on the two other models we received.

  1. Amazing concept, the whole light thing. I am not much into this geek-watch thing so I never actually heard of watches that tell time using LED so this is cool to see.

    I like the Tibida better than the S-Mode Oberon, it looks cooler.

    I really hope I win, I hope I did enough to have a chance.

    Thank You!

  3. These watches are very cool. I haven’t worn a watch in over 20 years, but I would proudly wear one of these! :)

  4. These watches are amazing. Something for geeks everywhere. the S-mode is my favorite as its geeky yet you wouldn't think so when looking at it first. Just like me ;p

  6. I've always been looking to land one of these on my wrist! However, all the ones I have found on Ebay have been beat up. Oh yes, my microcontrollers class kicked my butt into binary shape!

  8. Since my Matrix Binary watch broke I've been looking for another cool geeky watch, the S-Mode looks perfect for me.

  10. A binary watch would be fun, although it would, unfortunately, take me quite a while to get used to reading on/off instead of numbers.

  11. Always have been a fan of tokyoflash…. ever since its first release.. but being a student never got the liquidity to spend on it :P

    Watch number #2 looks phenomenal… excuse me while I wipe my drool :)

  14. Love the look of the watches! The ones I've seen in the past have just been cobbled together bits and pieces. These actually had a bit of design sense put into them. Personally, I prefer the S-Mode Oberon, but I'm a black and silver sort of guy. It sort of reminds me of my Movado, actually.

  16. Time is irrelevant to me, that's why I'm always late.. but with one of these watches I'd have a good excuse!

    Plus I'll take anything that's free! :)

  20. They're a bit pricey, but really unique and stylish. The site says free shipping, I wonder if that includes to the USA…

  24. VERY cool….especially the S-Mode. From someone who doesn't wear watches, the S-Mode is the sexiest thing I've seen, besides my wife (of course). I'd love to be a walking advertisement for either of the watches!

  26. My Unix admin husband would love the Tibida, although it may encourage him to interact with people (imagine that…an IT guy who avoids people) when they comment on how cool it is and where he got it.

  30. Well, It's a pity you can't give us the 1000100101 – I like this one the most. That way or the other, I'd never say no to such a geeky watch ;)

  34. When I caught this in my reader, I thought for sure the Nooka watches would be featured, but alas, they're not here! Which is probably better because these watches look cooler. Now I have more things to covet.

  38. I would truly enjoy the pleasure of owning one of those oberon watches. It looks geeky enough even for me.

  39. Either of the watches would be an honor to wear. Their sophistication and elegance is something one does not normally see in a watch. It is sure to be a conversation piece for whomever wins the watch!

    Beautiful watches for sure!

  52. Oh nice, I just figured out how to read those watches with the "hands" and now all I get are dots?! I think they look cool, but can we be sure we are not unwittingly sending binary messages to space aliens when wearing the Tibida?! I think I have a mysterious binary freckle, could it be evidence of alien abduction?
