MIMO Loga was the first wristwatch with slide rule in the world, which added the C and D logarithmic scales from a slide rule to the watch’s bezel, adding calculation functions to the wrist watch, which would later become a standard of “aviation-style” analog (and the occasional digital) watches. In July of 1940 they applied for a patent regarding the use of logarithmic tables on a wristwatch, one month before Breitling Chronomat. Juvenia followed in 1945 with the Arithmo model, still using the principle of scales to help perform calculations.
Dimensions : 38 mm excluding the crown.
