    Wristwatch, 2009, TokyoFlash Japan. Shinshoku Model. This wristwatch was donated to the Museum as part of the Museum's Grand Complications: Art of the Watchmaker exhibit. Continuous stainless steel band, features a matrix of punched out holes with twenty-nine LEDs beneath the surface which illuminate to present the time. A single touch of the upper button animates the LEDs which then cascade across the band to present the time. Pressing the lower button skips this animation and presents the time immediately. Twelve red LEDs indicate the hour, three green LEDs indicate 15, 30 and 45 minutes past the hour and fourteen yellow LEDs indicate single minutes.
