12-5-9 Japanese LED Watch

I own this exact watch, and the best thing isn’t even the bonkers flashing/scrolling LED thing it does when you push the button (to show the time). Or the standard 12-5-9 digits it uses to display the time. It’s the fact that the numbers next to the LEDs are all in Japanese/Kanji! So it looks ultra-ultra-geek. Very cool indeed.

12-5-9 Blue LED Watch

This was the first real geek watch that I bought, from Yodobashi Camera in Akihabara. It’s a classic – smart and subtle, but very cool when people notice and ask how it works. A red LED version is available too, but for some reason is more expensive.
