After playing around with different ways to interlace numbers, the result was stacking two pairs of numbers upon each other, a big one and a small one. The big background numbers tell the hours (or the months).
The small foreground numbers tell the minutes (or the days). The numbers are all based upon the classic 7-segment digits brought into a half circle shape. Two numbers create a full circle. One display is nice but two displays are cool. This is why Focus got an eye catching dual display case with time and date readable at once.
