As you probably can tell by some of our past posts (H1 Hydro-Mechanical Watch and Devon Tread 1 Watch), GeekAlerts really appreciates well-made timepieces and the Ventura SPARC MGS Digital Watches certainly qualify as that.
Ventura wanted to create something new, so they used their expertise in traditional mechanical chronometers to focus on contemporary watches with electronic displays. Handmade and powered by the Micro-Generator System, these Swiss made watches offer the precision and quality that the Swiss watch making industry is renowned for. There are four models to choose from, offering slight differences in color and wrist band design.
The Venture SPARC MGS Digital Watches feature unique font for the numerals on the electronic displays, unmatched ergonomics and tempered materials such as Durinox and Titanox, giving them superior longevity.
Ventura invented the Automatic Digital Watch in 2000. The movements of the wrist activate a rotary mass which relays the momentum to a micro-generator; the electric energy gained in the process continuously feeds an optoelectronic time-module. The Micro-Generator-System of the new SPARC MGS was developed to achieve maximum performance. Placing the MGS side-by-side next to the time-device enabled a larger and heavier oscillating mass. This array also permits the viewing of the mechanism from the top, giving the SPARC MGS its characteristic appearance. The miniature power-station sustains a state-of-the-art micro-processor and a 250-segments 12-digit liquid-crystal display. The latest operating system EasySkroll v.2.0 allows later upgrades, another first in wristwatches. The multiple functions of the SPARC MGS are intuitively operated by a single scroller.
