This WAKMANN Digital Direct-Read is a design of "movement through a window". The hour, minutes & seconds are displayed as moving wheels within an asymmetric window.

The Digital Jump Hour Watch is a product of the space-age era of the 1950s-1960s & was considered one of the most modern & contemporary analog approaches to time-telling then (before the attack of the digital quartz)!
