There’s something to be said about someone who’d rather strap an LCD full of words on their wrist instead of a tried-and-true pointer-based timepiece. Comically enough, that description is likely to flow across the LCD of Tokyoflash’s new Kisai Kaidoku. This limited run watch is available with a black or white strap, and shockingly enough, was designed by a 15-year old by the name of Tynan Mayhew. The whole thing’s water resistant, and the EL backlight enables nighttime viewing; unfortunately, it’s hard to know just how long that CR2016 battery will last, but those who’d rather not think about such trivial matters can snag one now for $139.

It’s been a while since we gave Harry Winston’s Opus watch any play, but some timepieces are just too lavish to pass up. Case in point: the Opus Eleven, designed by temporal taste-maker Denis Giguet of MCT. Aesthetically speaking, it’s probably a touch too steampunk for some, but the way it tells time is straight up fascinating. Giguet points out the movement enlists 566 parts, a good deal of which are exposed in the main face — the center piece displays the hour, while the upper right disc shows off the minutes. Now, it might look like a relatively minimal watch for Harry Winston, but its case is made of 18k white gold and sapphire crystal, and the Opus Eleven’s definitely got a Winston-worthy price tag, ringing in at about $250,000. So if you’ve got a quarter of a mill just laying around, this is a definite contender for that stack of cash. Want to see all those tiny pieces in action? Check out the video after the break.

Just when a Tokyoflash watch has reached the pinnacle of unreadability, it looks like the company has scaled things back slightly — very, very, very slightly. Kisai’s Wasted watch makes “your senses [come] alive” by turning the time display into a sort of psychedelic light show, one that it would take a modern day Timothy Leary to decode. It’s apparently supposed to simulate some sort of hallucinatory state, although we’re guessing that it’s much more likely to give you a migraine. Rechargeable via USB, and available now for $85 plus shipping. Turn on, tune in, and click the source link to get started — or peep the video after the break if you’re uncertain, man.
