There is no shortage of beautiful and innovative vintage watches out there, but few are quite as cool as the Seiko Quartz LC 0624-5009 LCD digital watch. That’s right, a digital watch, but allow me to backtrack a bit and set the scene. In 1973, Seiko introduced the 06LC in Japan, the world’s first six-digit display LCD watch. At the time, this was groundbreaking technology and the culmination of Seiko’s pioneering efforts in the area of producing more energy-efficient LCDs. As one might expect, today the 06LC is a bit of a collector’s item among Seiko die-hards, and great examples of the 06LC can be rather rare and expensive.
