If you’ve lusted over TokyoFlash watches before but were put off by how bulky they were then the new Retsu model should appeal to you.

It’s only 8mm thin and weighs in at about 40 grams making it about 1/3 of the weight of most other LED-based watches. To show the time the Retsu uses a vertical display that runs up the side of the watch face. Hitting a button causes the LED lights to race up to the digit and then trail off leaving a single LED next to the number. This is then repeated for each digit to indicate the current time.

The Retsu is exclusively available at TokyoFlash for about $130. (?14900)
