Return of digital technologies mimicking mechanical watches  0 Comments


LG has released a report of their development of 6 inch TFT-LCD elliptical and 1.4-inch circular-shaped LCDs. This development would of course be an interesting change away from the mono LCD displays that is currently in the market. With the use of colour displays that can mimick precisely and accurate the dial and hands of popular designs, it also allows the manufacturer to easily place the brands on the LCD display dial.

The question, is whether the watch will allow its owner to have the option to change how the dial and hands look for different occasions. That could easily make it a best seller.

Curious that at BASEL 2008 - extreme efforts were made to create digital displays out of mechanical movements and here is a brand that easily replicates mechanical display with digital technologies. Which of the two is truly ground breaking?
