introduced in 1979 with the LC-855W a tiny combination of a basic calculator
and a clock while the similar LC-854WA added even an
alarm function and stop watch.
Dismantling the LC-855W reveals a conventional construction with a Toshiba T3922S integrated circuit soldered on a flexible printed circuit board (PCB).
Don't miss the special edition of the LC-855W manufactured for American Express.
The LC-855W was soon replaced with the LC-859WA
sporting a traditional (portrait) housing.
