Halo, Frank; und danke schöen!
I got almost that close, because I have seen some of the watches shown in the page you pointed me to. Matter of fact, the collection shown there has more choices than I found in other pages, thanks!
Despite of the actual segmentation it uses, it seems to me that this one has the closest functionality to the one I posted about.
You know, my first motivation to find more info about this watch was the picture of a conceptual watch I saw in one old issue of the Elektor magazine. The watch could be seen in a tech exposition held in German. It uses no numbers, just bars, and the system demands a bit of 'on-time' computing prior to conclude what time is the watch showing.
This one, in the picture I posted, needs no computing, just direct reading, but surely the ones coming from Korea, China and Japan are twisting the concept of checking the time in a wristwatch.
And did you see? They already have a two-page museum! Wow! The no-longer-being-built watches are as futuristic as the ones still being sold.
