Title (EN) ELECTRONIC WRIST WATCH COMPRISING AN INTEGRATED CIRCUIT INCORPORATED IN A FLEXIBLE BAND
(FR) MONTRE-BRACELET ELECTRONIQUE COMPORTANT UN CIRCUIT IMPRIME INCORPORE DANS UN BRACELET SOUPLE
Abstract:
(EN) The invention concerns a wrist watch whereof the components (11, 12) of the electronic clockwatch movement are mounted on a flexible film with printed circuits (10), which is itself incorporated in the band (1) by overmoulding of an insulating elastomer material. The external elements in the form of watch cases (2 to 4) are mounted sealed on the band to protect said components and cover at least a display unit (20) and an electric power supply source (15). Decorative elements (5) similar to the watch cases are distributed along the band to imitate links. Such a wrist watch can be produced with little cost.
(FR) Les composants (11, 12) du mouvement d'horlogerie électronique de la montre sont montés sur un film flexible à circuits imprimés (10), qui est ensuite incorporé dans le bracelet (1) par surmoulage d'une matière élastomère isolante. Des éléments extérieurs en forme de boîtiers (2 à 4) sont montés de manière étanche sur le bracelet pour protéger lesdits composants et recouvrir au moins une unité d'affichage (20) et une source d'alimentation électrique (15). Des éléments décoratifs (5) analogues aux boîtiers sont répartis le long du bracelet pour imiter des maillons. Une telle montre-bracelet peut être fabriquée à un faible coût.
