I have bought 2x Vic SAK's (tinker- 1991 and craftsman- 1996, minus the pliers but with fish scaler-ruler) that have ROUND phillips screwdriver WITH can key.The author completely skips that fact- square/can key, then round/no can key.
Shouldn't the long/short in-line Phillips and the glass/plastic magnifier change in the same year?
I noticed you didn't include the large blade, was there a reason you left it out? And it would be nice to find out when the scale went from solid to hollow (early 90's, I think?) and when various colors were introduced. But, that's only hard core collector information, it may be hard to pin that last one down. Excellent work though, that's the most comprehensive list I have seen to date!

The shorter in-line phillips changed released when the LED was released (at least according to the information I have). The magnifier changed later while it still combined with the long phillips...
Re: analog clocks. The earliest clocks were self winding, not battery operated. I don't know if the switch is directly tied to Roman numerals to Arabic numerals, however.

I've put a note on the wiki-page asking for someone to confirm the existence of a mechanical timepiece. Does anyone have more information they can provide?
