I don’t think I’ve seen another watch like this – certainly nothing shows up in Google Images when you search for a sun/moon watch – and it’s a really unique design.
Firstly the animated LCD – pretty cool huh? The sun moves its eyes for each second, and the points also animate.
Even better, though, is that the LCD changes depending on what time of the day it is.
From 6am until 6pm you see the the animated sun – very nice – then at 6pm the sun changes into a moon for night time.
How does it do it? Well, once you see the moon picture below it’s kind of simple (and clever)!
The sun LCD is two images, and it’s quick a big black blob when it’s energised which is quite unusual for any LCD watch, and one side of it turns off at 6pm, leaving just the other side visible.
This is definitely a kids (or ladies) watch as it’s pretty small, and the bracelet I’ve got on it doesn’t do it justice at all – I will have to hunt out something better.
So it doesn’t actually do much – you get date/month and seconds with consecutive presses of the function button, and it has a light, but that’s it.
This is the kind of novelty that doesn’t need any extra functionality though; what it does it does well, and is always admired by people who see it (who probably wonder why a bloke would be wearing a kids watch).
Keep an eye out for one – they are impossible to spot if the module isn’t working/no battery, since they just look like any other LCD display. I would imagine the module was used by other manufacturers too, but as I said, I’ve never seen another one.
