Zeon SolSuno watch

A couple of weeks ago I bought this really cool watch. It's called Zeon Solsuno. Instead of the regular hands most analog clocks have, this one has 138 colored LEDs to show the time, date and weekday. The little lights aren't on all the time, but operate in "flickering mode", which means they flash very briefly each second. With the a press of a button they will light up, shining continously for 15 seconds. The photo to the left shows what 11:55:10 pm looks like on the Zeon Solsuno. When it displays the date it uses one of the seconds 1-31 as the day, one of the hours 1-12 as the month and one of the hours 1-9 as the year (the last digit of the year, so in 2004 the LED at 4 is lit). The weekday is show as one of the hours 12-6, for example 12 is monday and 6 is sunday. The watch also has three alarms which are AM/PM aware. It comes in two versions, stainless steel and titanium. I have the titanium and I'm very happy with it. It's a very solid watch with an excellent finish.

It's a really geeky and cool watch that makes people ask you about it! Learn more at SolSunoWorld.

Be sure to check eBay if you intend to buy one, the offical retailers sell some watches there at a better price. There's some info on the site about who the offical retailers are.

Heads up -- I bought one a few weeks ago, and it is HUGE. The bracelet is designed such that if you have a smaller wrist, the first links connecting to the 'lugs' can't angle downward at a fast enough angle. I ended ups selling it. :sigh:
