First watch to use e-Paper hits the stores

The Japanese company Seiko is set to release a limited edition of 500 units of their new Spectrum SVRD001. It will be the first watch to employ flexible e-paper, a technology called EPD (electrophoretic display). The form-factor is that of a bracelet made of stainless steel, which incorporates a unique, large e-paper display.

Word to the wise: wait a few months. Remember, Roger Moore's LED watch from the 1973 Bond film cost a couple of grand. Just 18 months later, I think the street price was about three bucks.
