    For HP's first foray into the world of watches the quality just oozes from this watch. I will let other already published descriptions describe the watch in detail.

    Suffice to say, Wow to the quality, fit and finish and the added details such as gold plated connections and circuitry. The keys are flawless as is the strap and case. The strap even has a quick release to allow for battery changes! Came with a soft pointed stylus attached to the strap buckle.

    I CAN'T GET THIS off my wrist!!

    Nice watch !

    BTW, is that an HP-55 calculator ? I had one in the 70's, still have it but it stopped working quite some time ago.. (thanks for the memories)

    Thanks,

    HP-67 with card reader, thats one of the programs I use in the cockpit on the white card. The card was inserted on the right side and exited on the left when read.

    The 55 had a timing circuit in it based on a quartz crystal. This watch has many of the same time based dynamic functions the 55 had.

    Keep the calc and get it fixed or if you want to sell let me know, I try to work on them also.

    Cheers, Geoff
