Wooden Watch with Hidden Display #WearableWednesday

Some of you may have seen a clock project that used a faux wood adhesive paper to pull off an LED display underneath. Well, this watch called Night Vision looks even better with its display shining under some wood veneer according to Gizmodo. Produced by TokyoFlash Japan, the watch comes in different wood finishes, as well as different LED colors.

The most interesting thing about this watch is its hexagonal face, which keeps its geometric design when offering the time. A portion of the outer ring  is left open at the appropriate number to represent hour, while the center of the watch offers actual digits with the same fun shape. The watch also has a special mode for evening where you can have the display keep moving.  Frank Lloyd Wright probably would have been a fan.

This watch is going to cost you some change, but you may be able to DIY your own version. Start with a laser cutter to get the wood pieces and then work with a thin veneer or faux wood adhesive paper for the face. You’ll probably want to get one of our watch kits like the TIMESQUARE. It might not be a hexagonal display, but it will be a lot quicker to read. Isn’t that part of good design anyway?

  1. Thanks for the review.
    Just to clear up one point: the wooden screen is actual wood, not a sticker. Its just a thin sheet of real wood that allows the light to shine though.
    All the best!
