Toshiba 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.
