    Does anyone else like inverse digits on their quartz watches?

    I've always preferred them to black digits on a gray/green background and have 3 models. I think I fell in love with the look of them when I first saw them some 25 to 30 years ago. I think Casio brought them out first but I could be wrong. My other Casio is black digits, though. Only on my Rado do I find difficulty in reading them when the light is low because it doesn't have a backlight function.

    Some are good and some are not. LCD comes in different quality and different flavors.
    For many it about cool look and they love it.
    It's why people love for example green dilas

    I like the ones on my Braun. Has a pretty high quality display from Ventura. I didn't like the G Shock I had with inverse digits though.

    In the real world some -ve displays aren’t bad while others are truly horrible to read so I’ve got a bit of a downer on that type of display even though they do look good in pictures.

    They need good light to look their best, like a bright sunny day.

    I've got both types, and like them both. My Casios all have positive displays.

    The best negative display I've yet seen is on my Pulsar PS7001 and PW3003. Both have brilliant golden digits against a black background, and are easy to read.

    I'm interested in the new GMW B5000, but not sure if I want positive or negative display. I think I need to see one in person.

    Re: Does anyone else like inverse digits on their quartz watches?

    Negative displays look cool, but some negative displays are difficult to read due to low contrast of the digits. Negative displays do tend to be easier to read in bright environments (outdoors, office lighting, etc). You just have to be careful when choosing a watch with a negative display. Positive displays are almost always easy to read no matter what. I only have one digital watch, a GD350, which has a negative display with good contrast.
