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.

Who would have thought that high-fashion/hipster brand Diesel could create a watch that appeals to geeks? The mirror display is pretty cool: the scrolling LED time/date only appears behind it ‘on demand’. Very tasty.
