I'd say Seiko beat Apple to the invention of the "digital crown" 40+ years ago.

my thinking too
my first memories of watches in a jewelry stores are digital watches
you got yourself a beauty
can i ask how large it is?
i love digitals but as a large guy most look out of place on my wrist
this one seems a bit larger
There's beauty in simplicity too .
Super example of a super watch, but Citizen's first LCD had a digital crown well before this Seiko.I'd say Seiko beat Apple to the invention of the "digital crown" 40+ years ago.
Thanks Gerald! - good bit of data. Either way Apple got beat with the concept decades prior. Maybe something along these lines?Super example of a super watch, but Citizen's first LCD had a digital crown well before this Seiko.
I believe Seiko's first watch with a digital crown (and no buttons) was the 0114-0010, which was first featured in 1975's volume 1 catalogue (actually the first of the Seiko catalogues to feature any digital watch). I'm unsure whether the 0114 or the Citizen was released first.
