The Seiko T001 – Mother Of All Smart Watches

Post by JAS1125 » Tue Apr 09, 2019 11:23 am

Who said we were done bagging on about smart watches?) After a spring characterized by being bombarded by stories about smart watches, this summer I (almost) completely unplugged from the ‘net. One of my more productive endeavors whilst sitting by the pool was to pour over the pages of my trove of watch books and “MOOKS” (when a Magazine and a Book have a baby it is apparently called a MOOK…) On page 101 of “The Seiko Book” by Town Mook, I saw something that provoked a deep thought: What if smart watches have always been among us? What if, unbeknownst to you or me, you have the makings of a primitive smart watch in your drawer full of discarded gadgets? What if your portable cassette player and your first digital watch were trying to make their own MOOK?

Apparently, when Richard Leakey discovered Lucy, the missing link between early hominids and later early hominids, he was wearing a Rolex (or at least that is what the ad I saw way back when in National Geographic would have us believe!) Fittingly, I was wearing a Rolex when I discovered this!
