Mobile Watches

Today, hardly anyone was surprised with the mobile watch with high-tech "stuffing." However, before becoming the coolest gadgets, these watches have undergone a number of changes. Some worthy representatives - "progenitors" of the present mobile devices - can beat a younger generation of watches "cyborgs". Few people, for example, remember a unique piece of the spy watch Kilfitt UKA 659, invented in the 1960s by a famous optician Heinz Kilfittom Munich laboratory. Translated from the German, UKA means «Uhr KAmera» - «watch camera", in our opinion. In this digital age, when nothing new, it would seem, on the horizon there are enough interesting "little things." And in spite of this masterpiece Heinz Kilfitta which celebrates its fiftieth anniversary, is not the last place in the so-called top gadgets. What's special in watch of a German optics? Not only the time meters occur admiration (although they, too, are worthy of respect, it is enough to look at them), but a miniature camera built into it movement. Pictures can be saved to a special 8-frame film, and the size of the side of the frame is only 5.6 mm.
In today's photo stores such piece cannot be found. Fixed focal length of the lens is 10.5 mm, which creates the image of the "fish-eye" (now considered fashionable effect to a photo editor programs - clicked "ok" and ready, but before that it was a "handmade." Expression "eye-diamond "was not an empty phrase.). For any fan of espionage, for all those who love "saga" of the James Bond, it would be irreplaceable gift. But such a watch-camera is only in one piece. You can, of course, buy such a miracle on eBay, it will cost 60,000 USD. But you will become the guardian of history! Great honor, agree!
