Tron-inspired LED Watch

Design submitted by Scott from UK.

This concept was voted as one of the most popular designs by fans on the blog and thanks to your votes has become reality and is now available to buy here exclusively at Tokyoflash Japan.

This watch design takes its inspiration from one of Scott’s favorite films as a kid, TRON, and from his Pimp Pimpin Ain’t Easy watch.  He wants something that will get noticed when it lights up and that’s why he came up with an electroluminescence strip around the whole watch strap.

The two rings (styled on a Tron Disc) represent minutes (outer) and hours (inner).  The break in the ring represents the time in a normal clock face layout.

The electroluminescence strip and LED watch face makes the whole watch light up and will definitely stand out from other watches.

  1. This is absolutely gorgeous! This is everything I love in a watch, analogue, unique, simple but not boring, and it looks straight out of Tron! I’ve never been more in love with a product that doesn’t even exist yet! Please please please put it into production. make it big enough to fit a wrist a little over 8 inches around, and if possible keep it close to or under $100 and I WILL buy one!

  2. Hi I love this watch and definitly going to buy it, It’s okay if the watch cost $200, just please use good materials, dont let it look to cheap, let it look really good. and also it would be great if it can change multicolors. And please let the LED glows slowly to bright, not like other LED watch where it just simply glows. This way it makes the watch looks unique and a more luxury like.

  5. Have to agree with some others, make it a quality watch. $100 is too cheap I’d pay $150 for better materials and finish

  6. I love this watch, I can’t wait to see the finished product.
    Will the wristband be adjustable? If not, will the watch be provided in different sizes?

  7. With only a few days left to comment I just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU to everyone who has taken the time to post a reply on this page. Without your support and kind words none of this would be possible. When I submitted my design I hoped it would do well but never dreamt it would get this kind of reaction.

    There are other amazing designs in this blog and it’s nice to see so many people who are just as passionate about watches, and of course TRON. :)

    End of line.

    1. Scott and TokyoFlash,

      I hope TokyoFlash stays as close to your original concept as humanly possible. This IS the watch that has garnered all the attention, it probably wouldn’t be wise to change the look, feel, or functionality too much. While some changes may please some people, any changes from what Scott first proposed would most likely alienate many more. Scott did indicate that “when it lights up”, so everyone should pretty much discount the possibility of always on. I think most people would be totally OK with a button press to display the time.

      I am concerned with the strap part (I have a small wrist). I like the looks of the pics but there wasn’t enough detail to determine exactly how it’s going to fit or fasten on my wrist. Also, the moment “plastic” was mentioned I immediately became fearful that this would be a “cheap” or “kid’s” watch, and I don’t want that. I hope TokyoFlash uses any materials that make the watch look like a fine quality watch, plastic or not. I think that’s going to be a challenge based on all the plastic watches I see for sale. But if they make it close to the renderings and it just screams “high quality” I wouldn’t care what it’s made out of.

      Thank you Scott for this great design, and thank you more TokyoFlash for recognizing the potential of this watch and working to making it a reality. I’m ready to preorder or order whenever TokyoFlash lets me…

      1. I totally agree with everything Renderinfo said, and I also have a small wrist so it would be a terrible irony if this finally comes out next year and is too big for me.

        I’ll happily put down pre-order money in advance if that would speed up the production process, I’m sure others would too.

  8. Use radioactive material to solve the battery issue. That shit glows for YEARS!

    Thanks very much for putting this watch into production, my entire office waits in anticipation. . .

  9. please dont’ make it huge….to make it look nice, it needs to be curved like it shows, but that’s not going to work well for people with thin wrists like myself. It’s look dumb if i had to cinch it up to get it to fit. If the whole watch is a little smaller, then it can still fit most people better, and still be curved, not with squared off edges (between the face and bands) in order to fit

  10. Why not make it so that you just press a button to light it up instead of having it go off every minute for 15 seconds? That way you’ll conserve the battery live even more.

    1. I think this would work best. The only question would be then: whether to make it so you could somehow still tell the time without the light on, or if it would just be blank. I think it would look best if it was just a blank band when the lights were off.
