It’s The Holidays: We’re Giving Away A Tokyoflash Kisai Sensai Pure Watch!


By David Ponce

It’s the Holidays so of course here at OhGizmo! this means giving back to you, our readers, at least a tiny sliver of the joy you give us with your patronage. We try to do this in the form of giveaways, and we’ve sure had a few so far: the EOS Mixtape Watch (now closed), the Windows Phone 7 (now closed) and the TiVo Premiere (still open, so go comment!). We’re adding one more to that list with the Kisai Sensai Pure watch from Tokyoflash, in black on black.

As any self-respecting geek should, we have a serious love affair with these watches and believe that a line from Wired UK magazine captures their essence quite eloquently: “Tokyoflash has made being obtuse into an art form.” Indeed. So read the rules (they’re always changing a little) and enter for your chance to win!

Rules: 1) Open worldwide!! 2) Leave a comment on this post, but please make it longer than 25 characters (it’ll make your editor happy…). 3) Comments will be closed on December 25 at 11:59pm EST.

Yeah, that’s pretty much it. Happy Holidays!

  1. I've always wanted one of these awesome Tokyoflash watches. It would be sweet to win one! BTW I wish you guys at OhGizmo! the best. This is one of the first websites i check every day.

  2. I'll be honest – those Tokyoflash watches are pretty polarizing. Some of them I love, and others I'm not such a big fan of. This one is pretty awesome. Would love to have it on my wrist!

  3. To have this watch, damn that would be hot. not only would i have a functioning peace of very cool looking technology but I would be able to trip people out when they ask what the time is and they try and read my watch. Merry Christmas and happy new year OhGizmo you have been a great read this year.

  4. Man … I can't even figure out what time it is (I'll give up in an hour's time and look at the product page). Nevertheless, an awesome looking watch and I'd love to have this as my Christmas present from you awesome guys at OhGizmo! and Tokyoflash. Happy holidays all …

  5. This looks like a pretty awesome watch. Not gonna lie I wouldn't mind having one these. I would have a hard time adjusting to figure what time it is, but that's understandable.

  6. I was given the Tokyoflash “Infection” watch as a gift last Christmas. I absolutely love that watch, and am so glad I was able to get it before it ceased production!

    I am diggin the look of this new model too. So here's to hoping 2010 is an OhGizmo Christmas for me! πŸ™‚

  7. Since I have broken my Thermidor years ago I have never had a watch. Never was a big fan of quartz watches, but this one is special indeed. I like the all black designe, I am curious what these lights mean (or how exactly they tell time). So yes – I want it. Your turn!

  8. Always have been a fan of the Tokyoflash watches. They may be a bit odd but around the office they are always conversation starters. Pick me please. Happy holidays to everyone on the OhGizmo! staff, and all the readers.

  9. These types of watches are freakin' sw000000000000t! I've always wanted one but all Santa ever brings me is gift cards to all my parents favorite restaurants… πŸ™

  10. I love watches and I love Oh Gizmo. It is the third website I go to every morning. Google news and aintitcoolnews are right in front of you, fyi. I cannot appreciated the gizmos you introduce me too, I am a tech fanatic and your stuff blows my mind in a good way.
    thx, spy

  11. Not only is this wicked design but, it can also make the streets safer. Let's say you're at the bar and starting to get a bit loaded on Eggnog, you hear the dreaded LAST CALL and quickly look to your (hopefully my) Sensai Pure watch to confirm the time but the blinking lights mean nothing in your inebriated state. This means one thing: When you can't read the time, it's time to call cab!
    Thanks Tokyofaksh and OhGizmo for making the streets safer!

  12. How can any self respecting geek NOT love this watch? It is both beautiful and capable of screening potential mates. How?- 1. Wear the watch to a club or bar. 2. Conspicuously look at your watch. 3. Wait for reactions. 4. Any girl who can tell what time it says is a keeper! Any girl who can't tell what time it is but asks you to explain it is a keeper! Any girl who looks at your watch and makes eye contact with you is a keeper! Any girl who glances at your watch and tries to run away from you but is slower than you is a keeper!…Please give me this watch. Please. I need a girlfriend so badly…

  13. I have missed these Tokyo Flash watches here on OhGizmo, and I've missed the WorldWide giveaways even more. So here's a loud and happy; Hooray!, for their return. If the gods are with me on this one, I will finally be wearing a watch again, for the first time since the Nokia 2110 was born.

  14. THe world-wide give-away is great. Winters in Canada can be a bit bleak; thanks for brightening it up! Actually, I really enjoy your feed everyday. I've given up on mainstream news, preferring to read about the latest in gizmos. Thanks.

  15. I have always wanted one of these watches but i could never figure out which one to get. along that line whenever i look at the site it seems the only ones i want also happen to be the ones they don't make anymore. When will i learn my lesson and just buy one when i like it before it goes extinct ><

  16. I've always loved these TokyoFlash watches — my only gripe is none of them display Military Time (because what blows the mind of a person trying to decipher the time on these watches? Trying to decipher the time on a 24 hour clock. 23:59:59 FTW!)

  17. I've loved tokyoflash's stuff for quite some time, but haven't been able to justify the cost of a new watch. I've got two traditional watches that were given to me as gifts, so I couldn't feel ok about spending money on another one, but as a gift, it'd be amazing.

  18. Friend: “Cool watch – what time is it?” Me: “Ummmm…it's…ummm…hold on, let me see…well, it's now plus five minutes while I remember how to use this.”

  19. That is a nice looking watch! Normally I can't wear watches, the feeling of something encircling my wrists brings up some bad memories. Although for something that could hold it's own as a sculpture piece, I'd adapt.

  20. These watches really aren't too complicated to read once you own it and play with it for a while. I bought one a few years back that I still wear even though it looks like a house arrest anklet.

  21. This is a fantastic idea – anyone with experience in reading these… unconventional watch displays? I imagine you'd get used to it after a while, like anything – either way, it's a seriously cool piece of wrist bling.

    Can has?

    *puppy dog eyes*

  22. one of these days i am going to figure out how to read these. i would like one of these just for when some one asks what time it is i will just throw it in front of them just to see their reaction then shrug my shoulders and walk away.

  23. Despite the fact that I have no clue how to read this watch, I would love to own it. I've owned some peculiar watches, and this one would be great to add to that. The looks you get when wearing somethng like this are pure gold.

  24. Since I never got my Ferrari controller………I would be happy to call us square, even or paid up if i “won” this watch. Hell, I'd go as far as saying that I would owe you guys. Whatdaya think??

  25. i always wondered what the hype is and the more i see and read about it, the deeper down the rabbit hole i get! now i really want to get my hands on one! Happy Holidays and keep up the blogging in 2011!

  26. ~When I stumbled across this post I thought about what It would be like to win one of these contests. I imagined receiving this in the mail, and opening it up. Wearing this out and witnessing my friends reaction when I tell the time with my weird but totally appropriate Kisai Sensai Pure Watch. You'd make my holidays so much better. :S

  27. Watch, watch, you are so neat. Let me win you, i will feel complete.
    I wish to give it to my man-friend. Because it is the coolest new trend!
    Fancy and futuristic, pleasing to the eye. Everyone should wear one, even Bill Nye!

  29. I'm not a geek. I won't claim to be a nerd. Sure, I've been living at my parents' house playing GT5 in their basement for the past few weeks. But what I really need are friends. You see, I spent the summer bicycling across the country (hint: this country has 10 provinces and is wider than the United States) by myself. I hardly spoke to a soul (possibly because of body odour, or the crazed look of a scraggly bearded, dehydrated nut ball). My only human contact some days was texting a friend to let him post my whereabouts on my blog so my family still knew I was alive. And now I'm moving to the other side of the country, away from my family, and away from my texting friend. Had I had a watch like this on my trip, I might have been fed on the side of the road more. Maybe I would have even spoken to a young woman! But we'll never know that becaue it's in the past.
    I'm not going to die if I don't win this contest. But I never have a friend. What better way to make friends is there than to have a sweet time-piece like this strapped to my wrist? And this way, when I move 4000 miles away, I might be able to have more friends than that one text messaging friend and my grandma (who said I can call her collect!).

  30. I do have to admit I love all the watches that tokyo flash comes out with, real unique. I would say its as nice as the mixtape watch. Its not to hard to tell the time either from what I see and the band is sleek to make it look like its once piece. πŸ™‚

  31. This is the King of Geeks Watch.

    The first super power it gives to his bearer is β€œtime keeper”. No one around you will ever know what time it is using this watch, except you!

    The second super power, you can claim that you have been inside Tron and this watch is proves you beat the game.

    The final super power, all geek will be under you power since is the one. It is say in the ancient script:

    One watch to rule them all, One watch to find them,
    One watch to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
    In the Land of the matrix where the Shadows lie.

  32. I don't get it. Why are there so many people who want a watch that they can't tell time with? Use your powers of logic, math, and deduction to see if you can figure it out. If all else fails, go to the Tokyoflash website and read the whole article detailing how to tell time on this watch. And if you can't be bothered to do that, I suppose you aren't reading this either.

  33. If I'm not chosen as the randomly generated winner of this contest, Merry Christmas everyone. If I am chosen as the randomly generated winner of this contest, Merry Christmas everyone!

  34. this watch looks very scifi like. looks like it activates and monitors a jetpack temp and fuel. as a famous hero would say, “its turbo time!” but no one wants booster.
