In June 1973 a friend stopped in to show me his new digital watch.  It was one of the first and if you pushed the button it showed the time in red numerals.  It showed only the time.   He paid $600 US. Now we have this.  The watch of 1973 was leading edge technology and caused as much fuss as the Apple Watch.  32 years have passed since I first saw that watch and I have wanted one since.
