The new Click Watches are reaching back into the glory days of electronics for their inaugural Dip Switch and Turn Switch timepiece collections.
If you look at the circuit boards of an 80's arcade game, you'd find these Dip Switches. This type of switch is designed to be used on a printed circuit board along with other electronic components and is commonly used to customize the behavior of an electronic device for specific situations.
Click Watches have ingeniously adapted these 'retro-tronics' into an entirely new way to show digital watch functions.
Each dip switch activates a different function of the watch as seen in the diagram below. Functions ranging from bar graph metered time display, 12 hour and 24 hour digital time display, month, date, day of week and backlight.
The strap on this version emulates the electronic ribbon of yesteryear.
