Digital Watch

Showing the single result

A Digital Watch display shows the time as a number, e.g., 12:08 instead of a shorthand pointing towards the number 12 and a long hand 8/60 of the way around the dial. The digits are usually shown as a seven-segment display. Buy from a trendy list of awesomely designed watches from a variety of styles like Analog Watch, Kids Watch, Chronograph Watch and much more.

Most watches with LED displays require that the user press a button to see the time displayed for a few seconds because LEDs used so much power that they could not be kept operating continuously. Usually, the LED display color would be red. Only in darkness, you had to press a button to light the display with a tiny light bulb, later illuminating LEDs. In some early digital watches, LED displays were used, which could be read as easily in darkness as in daylight. The user had to press a button to light up the LEDs, which meant that the watch could not be read without the button being pressed, even in full daylight. In some types of watches, small incandescent lamps or LEDs illuminate the display, which is not intrinsically luminous. These tend to produce very non-uniform illumination. Incandescent lamps are very wasteful of electricity.

Other watches use an electroluminescent material to produce uniform illumination of the background of the display, against which the hands or digits can be seen. Wristwatches with analog displays generally have a small knob, called the crown, that can be used to adjust the time and, in mechanical watches, wind the spring. Almost always, the crown is located on the right-hand side of the watch so it can be worn of the left wrist for a right-handed individual. This makes it inconvenient to use if the watch is being worn on the right wrist. Some manufacturers offer “left-hand drive”, aka “destro”, configured watches which move the crown to the left side making wearing the watch easier for left-handed individuals. A rarer configuration is the bullhead watch. Bullhead watches are generally, but not exclusively, chronographs. The configuration moves the crown and chronograph pushers to the top of the watch. Bullheads are commonly wristwatch chronographs that are intended to be used as stopwatches off the wrist. Examples are the Citizen Bullhead Change Timer[48] and the Omega Seamaster Bullhead. Digital watches generally have push-buttons that can be used to make adjustments. These are usually equally easy to use on either wrist.
