Commodore Business Machines LED Watch

Before some of our favourite technology computers made the machines we all know and love, a lot of them were involved in the short-lived digital watch craze of the mid 70st

Companies such as Intel, HP and Sinclair all tried to get a slice of the market for digital time-pieces that was forecast to be a huge money-maker.

After the introduction of the world's first digital watch in 1972 (for a price of $2,000) several companies made an entry into this market before over-saturation and dropping prices meant the bottom dropped out later in the decade.

I take a look at the short-lived Commodore Time Master LED Watch from 1976.
