Digital watches:

Kimo sent me this pic of this digital watch. He still has it, and it still works. When digital watches first came out, they were ground-breaking. No one had ever seen one before, they were a new innovation. They were also extremely expensive. A really good digital watch would cost in the 100's of dollars. I'm not sure if they make them anymore.

I remember a few adults who had them in gold. I thought they were very cool!

I remember that they were definitely the bling to have back then.

I wonder if sundials and hour glasses were also all the rage WAY back in the day...

Cheer: I had an extremely ugly, uncomfortable-to-wear black one. I don't think they are made anymore.

Cool Dad: They were. Back then.

Marissa: I bet the sundial was like a major invention back then. Of course, now, not so much...

What did I miss? Did someone hate digital watches? Ratbastards.

joe said...

No, some nut who did a 7-paragraph anti-Israel rant... total nutjob.

I actually collect digital watches and have two of these, one still in it's presentation case. They still make them in the form of binary wathes mostly because the tiny 7 segment displays were no longer manufactured, although recently a small display has been introduced.
I LOVE digital watches. I would do ANYTHING for a digital watch.
It must have been 1974 I bought my first one.

I remember the watches that could also function as a calculator were popular too (this may have been an 80's thing)
