Yamanote Line Watches from Seahope Japan

Want to impress your friends with an unusual wristwatch? Well here are four Yamanote Line watches from Seahope Japan. These watches are exact reproductions of JR’s Yamanote Line electronic bulletin boards (Tokyo’s major underground line). Stations available are Shinjuku, Ikebukuro, Ebisu, and Shinagawa.

They have two view modes (time and date), but don’t expect a train time table. These watches provide the time and date, that’s IT!

    Actually, the Yamanote line is a train (above ground) line and not a metro (subway – below ground) line

    What is the difference in the two different models? Besides the marginal price difference´?

    What does the text around the time say?

  • Justmeinparis

    Great idea, neatly done. Where can we buy?

  • Kagamiyama

    Such a nice idea, remembers me on the lovely alarm-clock. I hope, that I have ANY chance to buy this one.

    The only negative point: I would prefer Shimbashi since I lived there.

  • jcpb01

    Which shops will be selling one of these? I want one.

    …good job they are based on Japanese train network.

    it it was anything like the trains in ondon, you would forever be turning up to work an the party late!

    This watch is way too cool! Does anyone know where you can buy one of these because I want it!

  • GT

    Have to say the design is far too geeky to wear. Why don’t they make a Bus stop watch? Get a life, and a car.
