Digital watches and their place in horological history

Postby Racer-X » May 15th 2017, 1:32pm

by Danijel "When we say “watch”, we mostly think of a timepiece with rotating hands pointing to numbers arrayed on a (typically) circular dial. Sure this has changed a bit with the immersion of smartwatches, but a traditional, mechanical or quartz, watch still remains the first thing we think of when talking about “time-telling devices”. But today we will not talk about them. No, in today’s article we’ll go through a brief history of digital watches and see how they impacted the watchmaking world."
