Sony Watchman logo
Less known than its famous audio sibling, the Walkman, Sony’s Watchman is a line of portable pocket TVs. First introduced in 1982, it was discontinued in 2000. Throughout the more than 65 different models, the logo uses Russell Square, in all lowercase letters.
The very first Watchman, the FD-210, was released by Sony in Japan in 1982, followed by a wider release in Europe and North America two years later. It wasn’t the first handheld TV available to consumers—companies like Panasonic had released versions in the ’70s—but the Watchman was the first to be considered truly pocketable thanks to a clever feat of engineering by Sony.
