New fan-designed Tokyo Flash watches
Tokyoflash, known for advanced (read "way-out") watch designs, recently asked its followers to submit and vote on new designs – and the first batch has gone into production.
Kisai Satellite, the first watch of the collection is available with black or white bands and the choice of a blue or green led light display. This watch displays different time elements in three distinct circles. The top large circle displays the hour, the second circle five minute groups and the third circle single minutes – not too difficult.
Kisai RPM, the second design, uses the same principle in a more classic look, with elevated levels, brushed stainless steel and a design that resembles a vinyl record. Time is indicated by led light rings - hours are shown on the inner ring, five minute intervals are shown on the outer ring and four single minutes are positioned at the top.

Good design. Will the reputed watch manufacturers design dials to promote green technologies like Solar(SUN),Windmills,Biogas,Hydel etc., This will help to popularise green technologies.
Also Wrist watches and wall clocks have 12 hour dials and one has to count it as AM and PM. In many cases like Air travel, Rail travel timings are in 24 hour basis for example 21.30 like that. I found in many cases people in developing countries misread timings crossing 12 midnight as the date of the previos day only and sometimes miss flights and trains.
So wrist watch dials can be designed as 24 hours cycle (Just like digital watches).
Will Wrist Watch Giants like Omega, Rolex,Citizen etc., consider my innovations.?
