Mechanical Digital Watch

at 5:12 am. Filed under Complex Hacks, Insane Equipment


Looking for a new watch? If so I am sure this watch would fit the bill, but I am thinking that you may have to sell the yaught to pay for it. This design is completely mechanical and rotates small colored cylinders to display the digital time!

Video interview of the designer.

"Consisting of 651 pieces, the Di Grisogono Meccanica DG (limited to just 177-units) is the world’s first hybrid mechanical-digital watch."

    And all information about this clock you have is that it’s mechanical, digital and it’s made in geneve? I find this to be quite offtopic, considering the name of this website. At least give us some specs, pictures. At least not a video with no footage whatsoever of the watch at question.

    LOL, I never noticed that Johnny. Good eye, bad for them…

    Thank you. Because the watch is so expensive, I just didn’t dare to make that remark myself.

    Look this is without doubt an amazing piece of engineering and design but lets face it, the Chinese will have a Knock off on the market in 6 months and if you are lucky it will even have the same company name plastered with glee across the bezel. Go the CLONE society!
