;-)I just realised that you have the perfect user ID to be posting about a roulette watch, Reno! :-d
Yes, it spins randomly. I have the black face model. When you push the button it compresses a spring and releases it's energy on the the pointer hand. The little pointer spins rapidly around. If you let go of the button while it's spinning it will immediately stop. If you continue to hold the button in, the pointer will eventually wind down to a stop. Either way it's fairly random, but I wouldn't be placing bets on or against it :-!Does the alpha "spin" randomly?
Hi, no haven't noticed or done any controlled experiments. :-d My assumption is that the spring is being compressed the same amount each time, and therefore the same amount of energy is being released which should mean it will stop at about the same place every time. When it first starts spinning it's going so fast you can't tell when to let go to make it stop on a certain number. I would think if you really wanted to use it for a little gambling between buddies to pass the time, you'd hit the button and then let your buddy say "stop" a few seconds later. You'd let go of the button and see what number it's on.Thanks! You haven't noticed by any chance if there is a relationship between where the arrow starts and where it ends? (I'm thinking maybe it makes X.YZ number of turns consistantly.)
Wardog, would you please post pictures of it ? They're quite rare around here ;-)
The black looks a lot better than the white one. Still waiting on my Croton.Sorry, I don't. Couldn't find it on ebay or alpha-watches.com There is a tiny picture I found through google.
