Introducing The Iron Samurai, an ice-blue Japanese inspired LED watch from an alternative future which gives its wearer cool omnipotence by rewriting the rules of how temporal data (time) should be displayed.
You mean this watch really tells the time? Yes. Even though The Iron Samurai embodies Tokugawan style and Shogunate design with its tice-blue numerals encased in stark samurai sword steel like the final battle between all the forces of good and evil in the multiverse, this Japanese LED watch does in fact tell the time and does so really efficiently too!
Tap the top button on the right side of the timepiece and watch the screen light up like surfacing ice crystals. Tap the bottom button to make the numbers blink and hence adjust them. In Time mode, the top row represents hour information, while the bottom row represents minutes information. In date mode, top and bottom represent month and day.
In fact, when you start wearing this watch you may find yourself spending all your time challenging strangers to duels. You will probably live by the Bushido code of Rectitude, Courage, Benevolence, Respect, Honesty, Honour, and Loyalty. You'll start reading kanji and reciting Haiku by Basho such as "even a horse / arrests my eyes—on this / snowy morrow." Yes, The Iron Samurai has been known to increase its wearers' strength, dexterity, constitution, intelligence, wisdom, and charisma by as much as 20 points each! Chuck Norris and Steven Seagal are said to be Iron Samurai owners, as is David Bowie and Brian Eno. In reality, this watch is perfect for Presidential dinner crashers, Facebook celebs with over 1000 fans, Youtube directors with over 2,000,000 views, anyone who can play the entirety of Neil Zaza's I'm Alright on electric guitar, iPhone 3Gs owners, or anybody who is a somebody.

- Why is this watch called The Iron Samurai?

- You mentioned that this watch is perfect for Presidential dinner crashers, Facebook celebs with over 1000 fans, Youtube directors with over 2,000,000 views, anyone who can play the entirety of Neil Zaza's I'm Alright on electric guitar, and iPhone 3Gs owners.

This watch is also perfect for machine language hackers, North Shore babes, Yukio Mishima fans, anyone who can sing the entire Open Arms by Journey at karaoke, as well as direct descendants of real Samurai.
- I've noticed that depending on the photo, the watch looks different. Also you've listed the bracelet color as "Camouflage Steel (Onyx)". Steel is silver. Onyx is black. Seriously, what color is this watch?
That's a good question. Depending on the ambient light conditions, this watch sometimes looks gun-metal silver. Like Hellsing battling vampire hordes. At other times it looks light silver. Like coins received to betray a savior. Other times it looks almost black or deep Onyx. Like the hearts of men. The reason for The Iron Samurai's elusive countenance is its scratch-resistant electroplated finish. This has resulted in a refractive process which breaks the light which lands on the watch into its component colors and reflects into your eye at different wavelengths. That's why it's so hard to describe the color of this watch. Then again, if it were easy to describe how The Iron Samurai looks, his enemies would be able join forces and defeat him. That ain't gonna happen.
