The Steineck ABC Wrist Watch Camera, 1940's
One of the longest running sales of a unique spy camera was the Steineck ABC Wrist Watch Camera. It was sold in the USA from the late 1940's until the late 1950s. Although this was not a watch, and it really was not disguised, it was a highly popular camera for it's time. If you were a private investigator and had one, you were the talk of the industry. No one, even to this day; quite knows why it was so popular but it was. Our guess is that it was just a show piece of modern camera technology for it's time period.
