MTV Music Television Reminder Watch

DSC02609

This is an early MTV Wristwatch from the 80’s. It’s got a metal case and bracelet in black and a digital face. The face has an image like a TV screen (I just noticed that after having this watch for about 8 years) complete with what appear to be dials or buttons down the right of the TV. The watch has a day indicator at the top with a special feature- a reminder box. The reminder box displays a beating digital heart in the upper right of the LCD. I don’t know for sure but I bet the beating heart reminder came on when MTV was airing a particular show. Headbanger’s Ball, perhaps? I found this at a thrift store in Pennsylvania. I’ve acquired about 5 MTV watches through the years. This is the earliest model I’ve seen.
