The Apple Watch is not the company's first timepiece
While the Apple Watch is the company's first smartwatch, it is not Apple's first watch. Back in 1995 Apple gave away a decidedly un-smartwatch to Mac users trying to get them to update their OS to version 7.5. As you might imagine, the watch is now a valuable collector's item. In fact, a former Apple distributor held on to quite a few of the watches for 20 years and a number of them are being auctioned off.

There are three grades of the watch available to bid on. Grade A is "Flawless," Grade B is "Almost Perfect" and Grade C is "Imperfect" with minor blemishes. The watches are all new and bidding has started. The auction will end at 10:30pm EST on January 31st. Click on the sourcelink to bid.

Not too many people remember the original Apple Watch. Those who upgraded their Mac to version 7.5 had a choice between the free timepiece and the Conflict Catcher utility software. If you do win one of the watches in the auction, you are picking up a piece of history. We have several images and a video that you can check out by clicking on the video slideshow below.
