Straight off the wrist of a Moon Base Commander from a 1960’s Sci-Fi classic, this watch features all the things that you’d expect. Flat metal panel, cryptic flashing lights, carbon fibre style strap and display that looks like it’s gauging your oxygen level.
For an LED watch it’s not short on features either. It has time with AM & PM modes, Month, date and day-of-the-week. Plus an auto light up function every 15 mins between 6PM & Midnight (Which can be activated/deactivated as required)
There are a range of suitably Sci-fi light patterns using the 3 LED colors.
Telling the time uses the colored LED’s to represent hours & minutes.
By looking at the 4 rows of lights, the Green & Red LED’s at the top indicate the hour simply by counting them. 3 red = 3 o’clock.
The Bottom rows of green & yellow LED’s indicate the minutes. 2 Green + 7 yellow = 27 minutes past.
It’s the same for the date mode to indicate month & date. The day is shown on the very top row of holes where the markings M, T, W show the day (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday etc)
Pressing the button once shows the time, a second press shows the date. The lights stay active for 8 seconds giving you plenty of time to read the display.
The strap has a leather back & a durable carbon fibre style coating.
