Phosphor watches recently introduced a new curved E-Ink display wristwatch. It is only 9.3mm thick. And it now displays worldwide timekeeping (24 time zones).

The new World Time Curved E Ink digital watch offers the ability to select from 24 time zones for one display mode while optionally displaying a second time zone simultaneously. The dual time zone display can also be configured to simply display the time of day or both the date and time in either over-sized or conventional-sized segments.

The new World Time gives you an assortment of different functions and display modes. Functions: time of day + world time, time of day + calendar, time of day (large), time of day (small), worldtime.

Please note that the band is integrated with the World Time watch case and is non-replaceable. This version has a black polyurethane band ($150), and is also available is white polyurethane ($150), black leather ($165) or metal ($195). Water-resistance 50 meters.

The dimensions of the case are long and thin. Plus the case is curved, providing an extremely comfortable fit. The glass is curved, which looks good, although it naturally attracts more glare and potentially more scratches. You can toggle between black on white or white and black, as well as viewing the time in 24 cities and changing between a number of different display configurations (the caveat is that one button controls all the display and time sets - so the book may be needed to adjust the screen and time). In summary, for under two hundred dollars, you get to experience the E-Ink technology in a portable, durable, comfortable and water-resistant wristwatch form factor.

The retail price is $150 to $195.

$1,000 or less
