Take a closer look at the original Apple Watch

From 1995


The original 'Apple Watch' was launched in 1995 as a free gift with Apple's new operating system at the time. Check out the video which documents the range of reactions to this retro collectors item...

First launched in 1995, this Apple Watch was originally offered to Mac users as an incentive to upgrade their operating system to System 7, and there was a choice on offer between the watch and the Conflict Catcher 3. 

The analogue watch, which now looks entirely retro, features the previous colourful apple logo on the face and some unmistakably 90's design shapes in prime colours and has Mac OS emblazoned across the black wrist strap. 

Although these watches haven't been produced for two decades, the manufacture kept some models back, and released them for sale for collectors a few weeks ago. 

An amusing video, which sees members of the public asked about their impressions of the watch, produced mixed responses, with some people feeling a sense of nostalgia for the item, and other, younger generations, struggling to come to terms with the purpose of a tech-less Apple watch.
