20090251999PUSH-BUTTON CONTROL DEVICE FOR A WATCH - The push-button control device for a watch includes a push-button stem (10-08-2009
20090201774CONTACT COMPONENT AND TIMEPIECE - A contact component, including: a sliding part that contacts with an other component and slides on the other component, or a switching part at which a contact state with the other component is switched, in which a composite plating including a metal plating and graphite particles is formed on the sliding part or the switching part.08-13-2009
20100142333Portable device and portable watch - In a wristwatch (portable device), a push button (push-pull operating member) includes an engaging portion, and the push button is mounted on a watch sheath (watch outer sheath). A locking member and a leaf spring (urging member) are arranged on the watch sheath. The locking member is movable between a locked position in which the push button is held at a predetermined position by the engagement with the engaging portion and an unlocked position where an operation of the push button is allowed. The locking member is urged by the leaf spring toward the unlocked position. A circular operating ring surrounding an hour plate (display portion) mounted on the watch sheath is rotatably mounted to the watch sheath from the front side. The invention is characterized in that the movement of the locking member between the locked position and the unlocked position is interlocked with a rotating operation of the operating ring.06-10-2010
20130215724PORTABLE APPARATUS AND PORTABLE TIMEPIECE - A pushbutton of a portable apparatus is locked against inward axial movement by engagement with a locking member when the locking member is unthreaded a distance 08-22-2013
20090003142Portable timepiece and method of fabricating crown provided to the timepiece - A crown includes a crown shaft, a crown head, a screw ring, and a spring for urging the head in a direction of being separated from a case band. The crown shaft cooperatively moving a hand setting stem is provided with a rotational force receiving portion of a deformed shape. The receiving portion is arranged at outside of a pipe fixed to the case band and is provided with a diameter larger than that of a male screw portion formed at the pipe. A head main body of the crown head includes a rotational force transmitting portion of a deformed shape fitted attachably and detachably to the receiving portion, a ring mounting face in a circular shape formed on one end side of the main body from the transmitting portion, and an inner peripheral face in a circular shape formed on other end side of the main body from the transmitting portion at an inner periphery thereof. The inner peripheral face is constituted by a diameter to be brought into outer contact with the receiving portion such that a movement in an axial direction of the head can be guided by the receiving portion. The ring mounted to the mounting face includes a female screw portion having a diameter smaller than that of the receiving portion and attachable and detachable to and from the male screw portion.01-01-2009

20110286314ENVIRONMENT DEPENDENT - TEMPERATURE INDEPENDENT COLOR CHANGING LABEL - A timing device comprises a sensing material and/or a component which is sensitive to the presence of an environmental attribute. The environmental attribute drives and speeds up or slows the timing device as the concentration of the attribute increases or decreases, respectively. Alternatively, the timing device is activated upon sensing the presence of the environmental attribute and indicates a total passage of time from exposure/activation of the timing device. Particularly, sensing materials of varying types are able to be used to indicate exposure to a variety of substances. For example, in some embodiments, the timing device comprises a sensing material which is sensitive to the presence of ultraviolet radiation. Alternatively, the sensing material is sensitive to other variables such as x-ray radiation and nuclear radiation. In further embodiments, the sensing material is sensitive to biological or physical contamination.11-24-2011
20090052285One piece self-expiring security badge or label with devices to print, activate and issue the time-label automatically - A self-expiring badge or label that includes an upper substrate having an upper surface and a lower surface and an adhesive activator layer on the lower surface. A protective layer having a first surface and a second surface is provided, with the first surface of the protective layer being removably attached to and overlaying the adhesive layer. A lower substrate is provided that has an upper surface and a lower surface, the upper surface being removably attached to and overlaying the second surface of the protective layer. A migrating ink pattern is on the lower surface of the lower substrate. To activate, the upper substrate and at least a portion of the lower substrate are removed from the protective layer to leave a remaining portion of the lower substrate having the migrating ink pattern thereon. The migrating ink pattern is then contacted with the exposed adhesive activator layer to activate the migrating ink pattern to migrate through the adhesive activator layer and upper substrate in a selected time interval for viewing from the upper surface of the upper support layer to indicate an expired badge or label. Preferably the migrating ink pattern is contacted with the adhesive layer by folding it onto the adhesive layer. Optionally, to activate the badge both substrates are completely removed from the protective layer and the migrating ink pattern is contacted with the adhesive layer.02-26-2009
20090086586Timing system and device and method for making the same - A timing device for indicating the passage of a duration of time is disclosed. The timing device and system, in accordance with the embodiments of the invention, comprise an electrochemical component which generates a visual and/or audio indication of the passage of time. The timing device further comprises a compensating element, such as a varistor, a thermistor and/or combinations thereof. The compensating element regulates the response of the device with respect to changes in temperature. The timing device is configured to indicate the passage of a single duration of time or comprises zones that are activated in a range of prescribed times and individually or collectively indicate the passage of time or the passage of a range of times.04-02-2009
20090016176Timing system and device and method for making the same - A timing device for indicating a passage of a duration of time is disclosed. The timing device in accordance with the embodiments of the invention has a grid array architecture. The grid array architecture includes an electrode structure with an anode layer, a cathode layer and a thermistor layer. The anode layer and the thermistor layer are electrically coupled through a plurality of cathode line structures. In operation the timing device is actuated through a suitable mechanism to initiate depletion of the anode layer and, thereby, indicate a passage of a duration time. As the anode layer depletes, sequential cathode line structures are exposed and the thermistor layer acts as a variable resistor through a plurality of exposed cathode line structures.01-15-2009
