pretty loose definition of 'digital' :laugh: 3 mechanical wheels that turn around to display day/date/time. I like it....
And, it's "100% accurate!" :D

I think this is a bit different than many WIS normal thoughts of "digital". The watch ad you linked was for a digital watch in that it displayed the time in digits (just absolute numbers, not hands on a dial where the hands could be between the numbers). Most of us think of digital as in electronics as they don't work in fractions either. I believe we're co-opted the term incorrectly. Much like how the term "computer" in the 1940s and before referred to a person who's job was to perform calculations. Now, the term means a machine designed for calculations, entertainment, etc.
