OK, so this may be slightly off topic since this is a clock and not exactly a watch. But...

I got this TI-70 clock at an estate sale the other day. It's pretty cool and in pristine condition but I can't find very much information on the internet.

Does anyone know if this is the first mass-produced digital clock?

Also, any idea what one of these is worth to a collector? (Sorry -- had to ask so I can decide if I should keep it or sell it)

I also attached a pic of another vintage Fairchild Semiconductor clock that I got.

Any help appreciated!

Cool clocks. The TI looks as good as new.

Sorry but we don't give valuations here.

Very interesting LED clocks from the 1970's. The website below dates both the 70 and 71 to 1974 so I doubt that it was the first mass produced digital clock. I remember digital LED clock radios in the early to mid 1970's that were considerably more expensive than their mechanical flip panel cousins. Ebay and possibly the LED watch/calculator/clock collector siteswill be your best sources for value.
