Does this make you also want to collect calculator watches?

I like the Sinclair !

A 1979 Seiko c359 just sold on tm this week which features at picture number 9 in the above link. The appeal of this one is the tiny tiny calculator buttons. Many complain about the size of cellphone buttons, but this one takes the cake and I think we just forget how small buttons can actually get.

I buy the odd calculator, with a recent acquisition of the Calcu-Pen - the first calculator embedded in a pen :

I'd love to own more than the 2 or 3 I currently have and they have always appealed to me.
One the subject of small buttons I have a distant memory of one that came with a small stylus to aid with pushing the buttons. Any ideas what make this would be?

I've got 80+ vintage calculators in the collection and they are next in the list to test/catalogue/photograph.
