Still Tuesday on the West Coast, but just have to share today's Craigslist buy. Definitely not my regular fare, but the price was too good to pass up. We'll see if it grows on me

Good morning Neilo, another beauty for today! Love that early ones, my first watch I got did look like this (at least in my memory....) A pity I don’t have her anymore. Truely one of the classics. 👍👍👍

Now that India is faking the current Presage these earlier Cocktail Times are a safer purchase.

So I shall sport mine today,

Phil Sir Thank you,I have a good few Seiko Digitals from days of Yore😜
It’s in what I call my Nostalgic Watch Box.
Funny how they always seemed A Big Watch at that time and now I see them as What they were “Kids Size” Love them though.👍⌚️
The Vintage Range Of Seiko And Citizen Digitals are still at realistic prices I think because the youth of today don’t see them as having enough Functions!!😂

Neilo, digital watches were all the craze in the 1980s, yes?


I just switched over to the Tudor.

Oooooh, nice strap. Mine's on the original horse leather , barely used. I've only owned it 4 hours but it's already impressing me far more than I predicted. That's never happened to me with a watch with no buttons to press or gizmos to turn.
I think it's better looking than the Presage too. Less cluttered.

Henry Sir,Digitals popular in the 80’s? OH YES Indeed😜⌚️
From the Late 70,s I remember the Black Screen Digitals you pressed a Button for the time and a Red LED display of the time came up,then the LCD displays started With positive Dials like the ones we see today.
I still have one of the round Old style Red LED Watches Somewhere.Now they were Cool.👍

My dad got one of the first Texas LED watches but I spotted the mistake as back in those days only really posh cars had clocks, so if you wanted to tell the time in his car you had to almost cross hands to press button whilst driving. I started my digital journey with Casio LCD's so display always on.
