ROLLER DIGITAL WATCH
1970s, the decade where all mankind dreamed
of space travel, gave birth to countless watches
with radical designs.
Some of the newly designed watches show time
through a window by horizontally rotating disks
with numbers printed on them.
In addition to horizontally rotating disks,
watches with vertically rotating drums like
car meters and airplane gauges were developed
and released at Baselworld in 1974.
Although the tastes of consumers have diversified
through time, one wish of all watchmakers
remains unchanged: to develop innovative
products that pay homage to the designs of
the past and also excel in precision.
Watchmakers have been through many trials and
errors trying to develop roller digital watches
over the years as they faced various problems.
In 2018, one electric equipment factory has
pushed through these problems, successfully
developing its own mechanism for a roller watch
fulfilling a long-time dream of
reproducing the 1970s roller digital watches.
