Tokyo Flash have always had an ability to produce watches that are a perfect equilibrium between design & geek. The Tokyo Flash Cross Town Traffic is no exception.  I personally am not a watch-wearer, but am often tempted by shiny time keepers that I think will make my chubby arm look a little more appealing. Even more appealing is the fact that people will actually have to ask you if they want to know the time. Imagine that. You are on the bus or tube and someone ACTUALLY engages in conversation. If you’re lucky, maybe you’ll get eye contact. Whatever. It is the year 2010 after all, and most people use their mobile phones as a watch. Anyway – onto the specs –

“Navigating Traffic will become your forte once you’ve mastered the rules of the road. Take a look at the maps below and trust your instincts. Hours 1-12 are the city streets in blue, 5 minute intervals are shown along the subway line in orange and single minutes 1-4 are the highway out of town in green. After touching the button, lights showing the current time will flash for a seven seconds to direct you.”
