A watch for the microbiologist in your life

'Infection' has lights that pulsate like a vibrant bacteria colony.

Tokyoflash

It's been a long while since we've posted about unreadable timepieces , and for good reason: We can't stand them. But Tokyoflash, the most shameless purveyor of these maddening devices, has truly outdone itself with the "Infection."

As best we can tell, the face of this wristwatch is supposed to symbolize a colony of bacteria or some other disgusting microorganisms, with LEDs pulsating along the way to resemble their movement. And tell time, of course, though we defy anyone to figure that out at first glance.

It's unclear what kind of statement this is meant to convey, other than perhaps to warn others to stay away because you should be quarantined. We won't even attempt to guess the message if it's worn with Tokyoflash's other well-known model, " Pimpin' Ain't Easy ."
