    Thanks for the link!

    Two other things he said hit me from that video:

    First, that he said the G Shock sold so well, because it had great design.

    Second, that at that time, the average American owned seven watches. (I presume he meant old ones in drawers, too - lol)

    Ha! I remember this presentation. I think Steve would have been all over the different watch bands Apple created. I can just hear him in my mind describing them on stage and probably comparing them to expensive Swiss bands. He did compare the iPhone 4 to a Leica camera after all. :)
