There might be something familiar about the way that the Shield Watch looks, yet you will first be drawn to its futuristic streamlined aesthetic. With sufficient illumination, you'll notice the red and blue patterns painted onto the silvery timepiece that will perhaps make you think of Captain America's external armor. The reference is subtle -- perhaps subconsciously understood -- and makes for a sharp and attractive TokyoFlash accessory.

The stainless steel material is cut into discs and arranged to produce a slight conical center. Two inset circles between the pieces reveal a tiny indicator each that points to the hour and the minute in analog fashion. These rings emit EL light for better visibility of Peter Fletcher's Shield Watch, making it superhero-themed during the day and Tron-esque by night.
