Apple’s new watch isn’t meant to be on sale until “early 2015”, but as MacRumors points out, you can get your hands on one right now. One from 1995.

Yes, Apple has made watches before (even called “Apple Watch”) but this was no way to keep in touch or pay for your groceries. It merely told the time, in a very zany fashion. These ‘stylish’ watches were given away as a free gift to those who upgraded to Macintosh System 7.5.

Now you might be wondering why Apple would need to give away a free gift to sell something. Well in 1995, Apple was not the Apple we know today. The company was crumbling, both in terms of its product line and its finances. After years of poor CEOs (John Sculley, Michael Spindler, and Gil ‘Bozo’ Amelio) following the ousting of Steve Jobs in 1985, it’s not at all surprising that Apple felt inclined to sell tat like this to keep afloat.

The watches have now gone on sale after the distributor found he had some left over stock. You can get them for $99-$129 – with the cheapest featuring minor imperfections and the most expensive being marked as “flawless”. You can get one at originalapplewatch.com.
