The Toyko Flash Men’s Star Performer Watch is a creation brought to us from the nether-regions of the Land of Cheese. You may find other notable Land of Cheese inhabitants such as every Billy Mayes commercial ever made and the album Hangin’ Tough. For some reason, Tokyo Flash thought a difficult to read, poorly designed, multi-colored smorgasbord was what every cool kid wanted. I blame it on the rap music.
This watch has hardly an real value. The display is made up of four vertical columns of digits ranging 0 – 9. Slightly above these columns are four strange symbols that represent the modes of the watch: time, date, year, and a “martini glass” for PM. The watch does not cease the cheese at this point. Oh most assuredly not, there is a featured “pimp mode”, where everything basically explodes into an incohesive blur of color and flash. This mode begins at 7 PM, ends at 1 AM and cannot be stopped. You can demonstrate how “cool” this is to all your friends by pressing the time display button where it will run for 12 consecutive minutes before shutting off. What an ugly device.
It’s made of black-ion-plated-stainless steel, and is supposedly water resistant to 99 ft. We found this hard to believe, and the unit conk’d out at around 30 ft. For the record, “pimp mode” isn’t any cooler underwater. Also, the use of a strange macaroni & cheese color the numbers illuminate for normal use makes the watch extremely difficult to read in daylight. Wow, Tokyo Flash really thought of it all.
Save yourself the embarrassment, and check the time on your cell phone. Then again we’re assuming you would rather not be at the height of “flashion”. Yea…”flashion”.
