BaselWorld 2007, an event where the rich and famous won't think twice about dropping a hundred grand on something as trivial as a timepiece (diamond studded, no less), is the stage where Seiko paraded its Spectrum E-Ink Display Watch for women. This bracelet style watch features a high contrast e-ink technology that comes in two modes - Efficiency and Mystery. The former mode gives you an easy to read and informative display at a glance, while the latter expresses time in a much more artistic manner where certain degree of interpretation is required.
The e-ink display is protected by a 360-degree continuous sapphire crystal that is more than capable of holding its own against minor knocks which usually result in scratches. The Seiko E-Ink watch comes with an outside diameter of 75.3mm, a thickness of 6.9mm and a mere weight of 80g. There is no word on a commercial release at this point of time, but rest assured these will sell like hot cakes should they become available to the well heeled.
