At the Seiko booth I briefly talked to a Seiko representative about the bracelet style watch and took some real world photos the exhibited high tech watch. See the photos on this gallery.
I am not a big fan of the bracelet form-factor. But then, I am not a woman. This new Seiko Spectrum looks more like high-tech jewelry than a watch. The original Spectrum is more edgy I think as it looks thinner. I asked Seiko if they are going to actually sell the new E-Ink watch. They plan to ship it later this year for about $2,000. The original Seiko Spectrum has the same price.
The ink display is encased under a 360-degree continuous sapphire crystal. Measurements of the new ink watch are Diameter: outside 75.3mm, Inside 61.5mm, Width 22.0mm, Thickness: 6.9mm and the weight is 80g. Seiko use the electronic ink technology from E Ink Corporation.See also our BaselWorld 2007 Booth Tour.
