This year is the 60th anniversary of the groundbreaking Nikon F camera, Nikon's first SLR camera and one of the most advanced cameras of its day. Introduced in 1959, the Nikon F was produced until 1973, when it was then replaced with the Nikon F2. Aspects of this revolutionary model's design can still be seen in modern Nikon DSLRs today - most notably in the 'F-mount' that Nikon retained when it made the switch from analog to digital. 

To celebrate this momentous occasion, Nikon Museum (operated by Nikon Corporation) is releasing a Nikon F watch to commemorate Nikon F's 60th anniversary. A Nikon Museum spokesperson commented (translated by Google Translate), "We planned a watch that you can always wear so that you can feel the presence and atmosphere of the Nikon F single-lens reflex camera that has been loved over time."
