Interestingly enough, the watches of the Time Computer line were classified as Constellations. Four versions were created, called Time Computer I, II, III and IV, and were advertised from 1972 until 1975. This is an example of the third model of that line featuring, in addition to the time, the date and month indication that had been previously lacking on the first generation. For a similar example see Omega, A Journey through Time, by Marco Richon, p. 377
