I thought you guys would like this one :) They are rare (really!) and usually broken and always crazy expensive on the bay. But on the local market places one might get lucky :)

What did I buy? Well you might want to see this awesome site first:

http://www.crazywatches.pl/jules-jurgensen-optcom-optel-dsm-lcd-1972

And here is my ancient watch, I believe Seiko never had one of these displays?



The amateuristic display sticker reads Sandoz, but is easily replaceable with a lot of other brands like Avia, Tärnan (?) Walchron (the first?) and many others.

The giant case is filled with electric doohickies ;)



Some info on the back.


Nice maybe original bracelet.



A lot of "wrist presence" :)


Very bad viewing angle, there are more "I can't see anything" angles than angles that permit you to see the time...



But I don't mind, it's super cool and it works!

Yes that site is very bad for my wallet. Like this site. No idea of the battery life, but my "modern" FE display optel watches seem to work for a long time on a silver oxide cell.

Here's one of them :)
