Keep time like a moon base commander

Tokyoflash's latest LED watch is right out of the '60s

The watch mavens at Japan's Tokyoflash seem to be caught in some kind of time warp. Recently, they introduced the Shaft-era theme of "Pimpin Ain't Easy" for their LED watches, clad appropriately in 18k gold plate. Now, they give us the "Numeri-color" model, which their site describes as "straight off the wrist of a Moon Base Commander from a 1960s Sci-Fi classic." We like the watch's look, but there's just one issue: We'd never be able to figure out what time it was. And that could be especially problematic when trying to figure out last call.
