BaselWorld 2011: Sparc MGS with Micro-Generator debuts
 
 

The BaselWorld 2011 will open its doors on March 24th to watch enthusiasts around the world. The first new watches have already been released. The Ventura Sparc MGS is taking automatic watches to the next level.
The Sparc uses a micro-generator to power a digital display. Wrist movements feed an accumulator providing power to the high-performance microprocessor. Multiple functions, like the 100-year perpetual calendar, are now just a fingertip away, thanks to the timepiece’s EasySkroll operating system.

The barrel-powered micro-generator has a 45 day power reserve.
The Ventura Sparc GS is supposed to sell for $3,000 to $4,000. See also the Ventura site.

I am not a big fan esthetically of digital watches, but if you can avoid batteries I am all for it.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
