Moire?

I guess it was when I was in high school art class we learned about moire, or the interference pattern between two dot patterns.

While I'm not a fan of the open dial look of the QDL, it does open up the possibility of using moire for things like the seconds. Has anyone ever seen an example of this technique used in watches?

Gee, really? No one here has ever heard this term before? Imagine the dial of the QDL, which has patterns printed on the inside of the crystal. Now imagine a subsidiary seconds only instead of a hand is a clear disk with a dot matrix pattern printed on it. As the seconds disk rotates it would create patterns with the two matricies, and would look like it were strobing. I thought this would have been a common thing in design, we were doing this 30 years ago in high school art class!
I know the term, I meant I was not familiar with any watch using this

design feature. Sounds cool but maybe a bit too audacious ?

In a world where the 44mm watch case size is becoming the norm, it's hard to say a sub seconds is audacious. Just remember you heard it here first!
