IIUYC, then you want an outdated display for nostalgic reasons, don't you? If I'd be a company, I'd let engineering estimate the coarse costs to fulfil your wish, multiply by pi, and offer you that price.

Why not? Would that require too much work or is it simply impossible from the technical standpoint?
As Massimo showed, it's possible.
I just think it would be a massive step back compared to the opportunities modern dot matrix LCDs offer. A step back causing much work (HW- and SW-wise) and no
benefit beyond curassing nostalgia.
If somebody would force me doing something like that, I'd let him pay for it.
YMMV of course.
