Mechanical 7-Segment Watch Concept Mashes Up Analog and Digital Worlds

by Paul Strauss

I just love the design of Carl Allen’s wristwatch concept, which provides a display that looks like a digital 7-segment display, but is actually mechanical.

From a distance, the displays look like LED or LCDs, but a mechanical system actually would move tiny segmented panels under the surface of the watch, creating that illusion.

No word on if or when Carl will fin a manufacturer for his watch concept, but I’m hopeful that someday we’ll see these go into production.
