Cool often overtakes utility as demonstrated by this Tokyoflash timepiece.

To tell the time on the Oberan Watch, start by looking at the outside ring of LEDs for the hour and inside for the minute. Even more specific time can be told by looking at the inside which is measured in minutes in blocks of ten.

Confusing, but it's cool. You don't need to really know the exact time anyway, right?

The date is easier, just push a button and the LED lights up.

It costs about $130.
