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.
