An LED Watch Good Enough for Tiffany
This is an elegant little watch from Fairchild Semiconductor that has the distinction of being a model that was selected by Tiffany. This model has the Fairchild branding rather than the Tiffany label, but the watch is otherwise identical to the Tiffany model show below.

This model features very minimalist styling and an extremely solid case milled out of a block of stainless steel. The watch has the usual five functions and a very bright LED display.
This fashion watch has a few slight usability issues. The display is set rather deep into the case of the watch and uses little magnifier lenses over the digits which makes the display difficult to read from the sides. For this reason, the display is not the most readable.

Also the angled button is a little bit hard to push since it must be pushed at a 45 degree angle instead of directly perpendicular to the watch case. Sometimes sacrifices must be made in the name of fashion!
This watch is in good condition with various little scratches over the front and sides of the case. None are deep and they could probably be polished out with a little elbow grease.
Face / Hands: Excellent.
All LED digits and segments are complete and bright.
The display is fine but has a single scratch across the front which is visible in the photographs. Due to the black bezel which underlies most of the front surface, it's not as noticeable as you'd think from the photos. The silvery Fairchild logo on the crystal is in fine condition.
Band / Bracelet: Good.
This is not the original bracelet but it's in find condition. The original bands for this watch were all made of leather which does not survive the span of time. However, the metal mesh bracelet matches the style of the watch nicely. It's a little difficult to fasten and requires some coordination.
Function / Accuracy: Excellent.
All functions work perfectly. The button is a little stiff. Digital quartz accuracy.
