After years of research and development, the world's first Swiss mechanical automatic digital watch is a reality: the Ventura Sparc MGS. Pierre Nobs' Ventura Automatic Digital Watch, devised in 2000, allowed movements of the wrist to power a micro-generator; the electric energy gained feeds an optoelectronic time-keeping module. Its array permits a view of the mechanism from above, alongside a 250-segment 12-digit LCD, which gives the SPARC MGS its characteristic appearance. The latest operating system, EasySkroll v.2.0, allows for later upgrades—another first in wristwatches— and is intuitively operated by a single scroller. View all Ventura Watches at Watchismo.
