Seiko developed the world's first TV Watch, which was also the smallest TV in the world at the time, in 1982 - in time for the movie, and in time for the Christmas market, where it retailed for around £400. They occasionally pop up on eBay, where you can pick them up for around £300 - £800, depending on usage and standard of packaging.
Much of the watch's TV tuning electronics were housed in an external box that hooked to the top of the watch, but it was still a TV and it was still a watch, however poor the reception and picture quality.
The gadgetry was fine - it had been invented - gadgets do improve - by now you would expect brilliant pictures.
Unfortunately, that has not been the case and things have not improved at all. We do now have a watch with which you can control your TV and a variety of other electronic gadgets, but not a TV Watch of any real quality.
