The Kisai Quasar is the latest timepiece from Japanese watchmaker Tokyoflash, a company which specializes in limited edition pieces with unusual designs. This particular example features a pulsing display that hides the time behind a geometric pattern, at least for those who don't know what to look for and where to look for it.

Many of the watches Tokyoflash produces are designed by amateurs, who then get to see their creations turned from a mere concept into reality. The Kisai Quasar is no exception, with László Scheffer from Hungary originally submitting the design in March 2012. After a full year of development the watch is now available to buy with a choice of red, blue, green, and mirrored displays.

The Kisai Quasar display camouflages the time behind a pulsating geometric pattern. The time is actually always visible to the trained eye, but is likely to remain hidden to the uninitiated. The display can be set to three different modes: Number Mode, which shows the time clearly; Pattern Mode, which hides the time behind a static pattern; Animation Mode, which makes the pattern pulsate in a zooming effect.

Despite the quirky design, the Kisai Quasar features everything you'd expect from a watch, with date and alarm modes, 12 & 24 hour clocks, and an electroluminescent backlight. The Kisai Quasar can be purchased for US$95 from Tokyoflash. Check out the video below to see the timepiece in action.
