Casio Casiotron R-11

My first R-series Casiotron, an R-11 from 1981 is now online (some tech specs, more photos):
It's built in full stainless steel with a glass crystal and a solid bracelet. The functionality is relatively basic and its diameter of 37 mm makes it rather suitable for a small wrist.

Golden Age!

This is a pile of gold colored watches from my collection. There are probably more but that's what a quick search brought up.
They only make up a small part of my collection and I wouldn't claim that I'm really into gold that much. But hey, someone has to save them from oblivion!

Casio Casiotron S-15

My 1976 Casio Casiotron S-15 is now online:
I really like the solid feel and the build quality of the Casiotrons. Unfortunately the LC panel on this one is faded and I haven't found a replacement yet.

Seiko 0662-5009 Silver

This is my silver Seiko 0662-5009 from 1975:
I also own the blue and the gold colored versions. Unlike the Seiko 0634 the 0662 has a plastic crystal and the bracelet isn't solid, which makes it kind of less attractive in my opinion.

Casio Casiotron S-11

This is my 1975 Casio Casiotron S-11 and I've finally put it online:
I'ts condition is actually not that bad but the face has seen better days. I couldn't find a replacement yet and that's why I haven't put it online until now.

Bulova N6

My Bulova N6 from 1976 is now online with some tech specs, more photos and a video:
I've already posted this watch with its box here but back then it didn't run. I recently found a donor watch with a running module and now it can be found on my wrist from time to time.
I wish I knew more about these Bulovas but they don't have a model name or case number nor a serial number. I also own this exact model in its gold colored version and its designation is N7 which dates it to 1977. I wish I knew more.

Casio C-801

My black Casio C-801 is now online:
I prefer this one over my silver C-801. I bought both of them because I wanted a Casio calculator watch and they where very reasonable priced and in very good condition.

04-13-2019 08:53 AM
TimeArtPiece @learningtoflyth yes, the C153 is definitely an interesting watch. They are still obtainable and affordable, just be patient and persistent.
These are all the C153 that are sold on eBay - worldwide:
I don't see any right now that I would recommend but you should be able to get a decent one for under USD 100.
04-13-2019 07:51 AM
kentronix @TimeArtPiece Yeah, my black one is "good from far, far from good"
04-13-2019 04:15 AM
learningtofly The C153 is quite mad, and I want one!!!

Lovely collection.
04-13-2019 03:02 AM
TimeArtPiece @kentronix I don't own a black C153 yet as they usually are offered in either bad condition or way too expensive. I wear a silver C153 on a regular basis.
04-12-2019 01:57 PM
kentronix Hmmmm, C-153 content !!!

Prefer the stainless or black myself but I would happily have one of these too for variation.

Seiko C-153-5007

My golden Seiko C-153-5007 from 1978 is now online (tech specs, photos, video):
This is a work in progress as I wasn't able to find a decent one for an acceptable price so far. There is some corrosion under the plating and the overall condition isn't great.

03-30-2019 02:41 PM
TimeArtPiece @mario linus I agree, the 0124-0019 is a really nice watch and the one pictured in my thread is in exceptionally good condition. I really like it.
03-30-2019 09:26 AM
mario linus Fantastic collection, I'm in love with the 0124-0019

Citizen Crystron 50-3053

My Citizen Crystron 50-3053 is now online:

It's the first and yet only Citizen in my collection. I bought it very cheap as it was advertised as not running. Cleaned it inside and out and it does work again.
A unique feature are the plastic inlays for the light and the mode button which I've never seen on any other vintage digital watch before.

Casio Casiotron 03-502

My Casio Casiotron 03-502 from 1975 is now online with some additional information and a video:

Seiko 0634

These are all running Seiko 0634 I own (I own a bunch of non-running for spares). The case numbers are 5019, 5009, 5000/5001 from front to back.

Bulova N6 - Module 106

My Bulova N6 from 1976 is now online:

Almost a year ago I started scanning various online platforms like eBay for vintage digital LED watches. In my opinion prices are way to high and so it took a while until I got my first running example. For me it turned out that Bulovas offer decent quality for an acceptable price.

Seiko 0432-4000

My 1976 Seiko 0432-4000:
With its beveled crystal, the blue face and the solid bracelet it feels more posh than other Seiko 0432 (or its sibling the 0439). When I wore the watch for the first time, I was surprised how much I liked it.

Taking Watch Photos and Videos - Behind the scenes

As several people have been asking, I've posted some information about taking photos and videos in a new thread.

Tech RAL Binary

I recently saw this Tech RAL Binary watch from the late 1980s and added it to my collection:

It is NOS and came with the presentation box and the manual. Maybe I'll take some photos and post them later.
The overall quality of the watch is OK but the bracelet is rather cheap. But it's nerdy and cost almost nothing so I had to have it.

01-19-2019 02:33 PM
TimeArtPiece @kentronix I'm about in the same boat as you but there is a certain fascination about these kind of watches. If you wear them you can feel the sideburns growing and you wish you were brave enough to wear these Elvis Presley glasses or bootleg beer with a black Trans Am.

Besides the gold coloring and the brown face Seiko spent this 0124 variant a more coarse bracelet than was usual back then. That's probably as much 70s as it can get concerning early Seiko digitals.
