Clock (off topic)

Between Christmas and New Year's I was cleaning out my mother's house and
found a Texas Instruments TI-71, complete with its docs and warranty card.
This is a small, line-powered digital clock. Still works fine.

What interests me here is that I recall hearing an unsupported contention,
years ago, that this was the _first_ commodity digital clock that used
seven-segment displays instead of flippers. Can anyone confirm or deny?
Tony, you probably know this one.
