Retsu, a watch by Saishin, is one of the smallest LED watches we’ve seen, and it’s available exclusively from TokyoFlash. Retsu is only 1.4 ounces, which is a lot lighter than most of the watches available on TokyoFlash. Telling the time isn’t as confusing as most of the watches found there, either:
Amazingly simple to read, the lights race up to the digit then trail off leaving one light reconfirming the number. This is repeated for each digit to tell the time. So straightforward it’s surprising no one has ever thought of it before.
Alright, so it’s easier, but it also seems like it would take a little bit longer to tell the time. TokyoFlash seems pretty damn confident about the Retsu, but with that sexy look, I can’t argue much. Retsu also features a black suede band and a great simple design. Pricing at $130 isn’t too shabby, either.
