Instead of using hands and digits, this wristwatch shows the time in words. For this, 110 letters are cut out from a solid, stainless steel square. At the press of a button, the letters light up in words which show the present time. The word display changes in five-minute steps. Four luminous dots in the corners provide the display exactly to the minute. This principle has been adopted for 20 languages. The watch is available in a number of colour and watchstrap variations.
