    Terrific read but he left out that Girard Perregaux set the oscillating frequency standard for quartz back in 72 and that same frequency was adopted by all brands including Seiko. Can be forgiven because the whole revolution is such a broad topic and to be fair he was focusing on Digital. However, he is incorrect to point out Seiko was one of the first to introduce LCD. That title belongs to Gruen with the Gruen Teletime released a full year earlier. As I said a terrific read and look forward to the other installments.

    Regards,

    Correction: Re - reading it I see he mentions Seiko LCD as the first (6) digit , which is correct.

    Then came a series of LCD firsts: first LCD watch with 6-digit display (1973), first multi-function digital watch (1975). Seiko consistently developed and improved its quartz technology.

    Regards,
