Last week we revved up our watches and showed you the BMW MP3 watch, this week we bring you the PIMP watch from Japan.

As usual, you need to head off to Japan for the the truly unique in wearable technology, and the PIMP watch is a blinky metal combination of utility and oddness.

What it is:

There are a few different versions out there, but the one we scored last year was a limited run of 500. Over 73 LEDs are used to tell the time, and it?s neat to wear around at night when you want to kick it Logan?s Run-style.


Why we like it: Every minute it pulses to tell the time you need to add up the numbers, it?s nothing tough for the mathematically challenged and it?s crazy how quickly your brain will to adapt a new way to tell time.

Where to get it and how much: These watches are around $150 and can found on TokyoFlash.

Here?s how you tell time:
