The video introducing Apple Watch shows four dates being selected (at 1:43-1:48): 1/16/70, 1/24/70, 1/24/77, 1/24/84

In reverse chronology, these are the dates that:

  • Apple Macintosh was introduced
  • Roots TV mini-series premiered
  • John Lennon & Yoko Ono declared ‘Year of Peace’
  • Walt Disney World preview center opened

The brochure for the WDW preview center shows a ‘lovely young hostess’ wearing a Mickey watch, paid homage to by one of the Apple Watch faces.

Coincidently, WDW took 7 years from start to opening.
