Worlds very first lcd watch ever

Seiko was the watchmaker who makes the first quartz watch, the Quartz-Astron what was sold first end 1969.

Seiko made the first lcd quartz watch too (only the DSM/Optel watches were earlier but were difficult to read)

The first lcd watch was the 06LC 0614-5000 sold in Japan only. Sales started in Tokyo on Friday 5 October 1973.

My 0614-5000 was sold on Friday 12 October 1973 according to the Seiko guarantee what was still with the watch when I bought it.

But the productiondate of this watch is the most interesting: NOVEMBER 1972.
