1939 Popular Mechanics Wrist Camera

Camera Worn Like Wrist Watch Loads Thirty Six Pictures

"Latest in the line of miniature cameras is a tiny affair worn like a wrist watch. Sighted easily by raising the wrist to eye level, it carries a load of thirty-six exposures despite its diminutive size. It has an f4.5 lens and a focusing scale graduating from one foot to infinity."

From August 1939 Popular Mechanics
