Samuel Jerichow is the designer behind the newest Tokyoflash watch, the Kisai OTO. The OTO is an LCD watch that responds to changes in the level of noise. Like recent Tokyoflash watches, the Kisai OTO is both deceptively easy to read and was a submission to the company’s design blog.

Reading the Kisai OTO is simple. All you need to do is look at the two rows of numbers on the left side. These tell you the hours and the minutes; the seconds are shown on the right side of the watch. The bars on the watch change in response to the level of noise near the watch, however, this can be turned off if it becomes annoying.

The Kisai OTO comes in several different colors and is available now. Stats for Decibel-Monitoring Watches Trending: Older & Chilly
