I want to use indiglo by Timex for my item

I have an item ready to assemble and put into production. a part of it has a small simple digital clock display somewhat like the one shown on link below:

Timex developed electroluminescence, indiglo, and put it into use with their watches back in 1990 or 1991. Texas instruments uses this technology now with some of their items and aftermarket auto part companies uses indiglo for custom dashboards ( tachometer, speedometer, etc etc).
 
So basically my question is, HOW can i use indiglo for MY digital clock display ?

There are at least two questions you have asked.  
 
1. How do I find out how if I can use a potentially patented process of electroluminescence?
 
2. Can I use the trade name "indiglo" for my product?
 
A good start to answering question one would be to find out what kind of patent protection Timex has on this product.

For reference, here is one example of a seemingly relevant patent, assigned to Timex, that has already expired.

Timex seems to have a variety of other patents which could relate to its indigo technology, however
