Tokyoflash is well-known for producing some futuristic watches , and the company has done it again.

The Kisai Rogue Touch Pocket Watch is a modern take on the classic pocket watch and features a hybrid LCD/LED interface. The always-on LCD allows you to read the watch at a glance, while an LED backlight can provide extra illumination when needed. A touch display also lets you to change the modes (e.g., time, date, alarm, and so forth) and comes with a spring-hinged mineral crystal lens cover.

You may be looking at the photo above and wondering how the heck you can tell the time on the Kisai Rogue, but there is a method to the madness. The outside ring features 12 blocks that represent the hour, and just to the inside of that are 60 smaller dots to mark the minutes. The two inner rings operate the same way but for a different time zone.

Encased in stainless steel, the Kisai Rogue Touch Pocket Watch is available in four colors--blue, green, red, and natural--and comes with a 13.7-inch chain. For the next 48 hours, Tokyoflash is selling the watch at a discounted price of $149; afterwards, it will run you $169, so act fast if you want to get in on this geeky timepiece.
