    If the hour number jumps from one hour to the next, then it is called a Jump Hour. If the hour numbers progresses gradually, then it is called a Direct Read. Collectively they are called Mechanical Digital. ( Another kind of mechanical digital very rarely seen these days is the Wandering Hour)

    That should give Mr Google something to chew on.

    Robmks,

    Is that a mechanical movement watch? If so, do you know the model or anything else about it?
    Passionate about things with balance wheels, especially if they are "brought to life" in Glashutte I/SA.
