... commonly referred to as the "Sideview", "Wedge" or the "Trapezoid" but most people just call it the "Drivers" watch. It's difficult to say if it really was designed for a driver who could view the time directly from the angled display without removing the wrist from the driving wheel... a minor advantage as the driver still had to use his other wrist to push the command button. The sun was a real enemy in the practical use of LED watches so in my opinion the sideview display was introduced to improve visibility as the display was shaded from direct sunlight.
