Infinity Digital Watch: Bye, Bye LED, Hello OLED!
October 7th, 2008
Despite their bright, energy-efficient displays, OLED (organic light emitting diode) timepieces are still be few and far between. So I was pleased to see another new watch jump on the OLED bandwagon.
The Infinity Apus Dark Force digital watch features a luminescent blue OLED screen, which really pops out from the stainless and black backdrop. It’s waterproof to 3 ATM, and features a durable mineral crystal face to protect the delicate organic crystal display that lies just millimeters below.
The display shows the current time, day and date using an unconventional typeface for a watch, using a serif font (looks like Times New Roman to me). Travel a lot? Sleep a lot? Infinity offers dual time zones as well as dual alarms.
As the hours and minutes slip away, the numerals gradually slide out of place, sort of like the numbers on an old mechanical gas pump.
And if black leather isn’t your thing, there’s also a version of the Infinity with a white leather band.
You can find a number of these over on eBay, with starting bids as low as a few bucks, but likely to sell for just under $100 USD.
