A bizarre periodin history in my opinion.
I am glad it is behind us. The LED watch reminded me of a Texas Instruments watch that I used to own.
Bad souvenirs from my perspective.

Vintage Ads: The Series – Part #3 Electronic
Note: Due to technical problems I re-post this Part #3. Sorry for the inconvenience. Hello Vintage Jaeger-LeCoultre Lovers, After some R&R with friends I am back and ready with Part #3. During the 70’s and onwards, like most of the Swiss watch manufacture...
My bad, Blomman. As I told you in my mail...
I messed a bit when I edited your post to put it in the reference posts. I'm very sorry for the inconveniences, for you, and for all of us who answered to your post. Thanks for reposting! Best, Nicolas;
Good or bad…

....Sorry, I should have written JLC LED modules. That era would have been fascinating. A real race for accuracy.
