I wasn’t sure if this should go in the modern LED watch section, or the famous people wearing LED watch thread as it covers both really, but anyway here it is..

Looks like a pretty wide spread used modern led module shown in many cheap watches on ebay,but with a nicer case.Good to see one with a sapphire glass though,but a shame the module looks lcd back lit with those thick segments although they are led.

That’s exactly what I thought when I first saw it, but I think maybe the photos aren’t doing it justice, you’d think they’d have done better photos for the promo images.

I don’t believe that’s a back lit LCD, I think the photos give that appearance but I believe it’s LED.

VFD? No way, these draw too much power. Looks like a LED.

Ok , after some research on the internet, I understand witch technologie is it, it's look like that (see pics) but this has nothing to do with the old original LED watches.

it's a nice watch but expensive compared to technology, you can find the moderne copy of vintage LED watches for a few USD.
