The display elements are one or more display rings (12) and a sliding element (14), all of different sizes. The device has an outer ring (11) with display elements mounted within the outer ring, movable eccentrically w.r.t. its axis. The display elements are one or more display rings (12) and a sliding element (14), all of different sizes. The rings and sliding element are arranged in a sequence of decreasing size to form a harmoniously closed display surface. Each ring and the sliding element can be displaced eccentrically w.r.t. the axis of the next largest ring or the outer ring. The parameter values are defined by the positions of the adjacency points (21,22) between the rings and sliding element. An Independent claim is also included for an use of the above device.
