    If my 77A is any general indication, then don't trust any of these watches to have much water resistance. Think of them more like those early '80s feature-rich Japanese models just before the Seiko sports models came on the market. It really isn't a problem for me but I understand that many people these days tend to see digitals primarily as sports watches.

    Friends, in this case you need to buy several different models.

    Dear White Lion,
    the choice of the "right" Elektronika is always very difficult, as it was available in many graphic variants and colour, for me I would like to get a new "light and dark blue" 55 with Technochas markings, but it appears it's not available and their colour choices are VERY conservative. :P

    However as soon as the first arrive I plan to get one for each type, including the "simple" Kamerton 60, probably the most minimalistic digital watch you can on the market today.

    Dear cuthbert,
    I know that often it is very difficult to make the right choice. Therefore, I wish everyone to make right choice simply and easily.

    In the meantime from Technochas super secret vaults another Elektronika has emerged:

    ????????.?? - ???? ???????? 53? (??-53?)

    The watch we were discussing here, that is the waterproof (20 mt?) 53B with plastic case.

    I personally like it and perhaps if they can make it a bigger version more waterproof (about 5 or 10ATM) I think it might successful.

    I'm a big fan of Elektronikas, so I'm also in for any project that we decide. Also if we can find a way to get our hands in the watches appearing on the Technochas site I'm also in. Lets see.

    This thread needs more photos. Here are a couple of ancestors of the current line-up.

    The late 1970s/early 1980s Elektronika 5.202 is very much a 1st generation quartz digital. The the big chromed case is satisfyingly chunky on the wrist, but the watch is very light on features, having only the time and date. The Elektronika 77A is a late production in the slim octagonal case which is a favourite of mine. The chronograph and 7 melody alarm are fun features but the skinny pushers are less pleasant in feel than the button on the older watch.

    I know nothing about them, other than I NEEDED one on my wrist, so I jumped at the chance to buy a NOS one rather cheaply

    It's still on it's way to me, but here is a photo. Does anyone know the actual model number as the sale listing only said it was an Elektronika 5.

    It looks like a E-52 to me, but I'm not an expert.

    The 5.202 should be what a WUS project might aim if it's possible to get delivered without traumas like with the current one. It's interesting to see the difference in quality from early quartz of the 70s like the that one and the B6-02 and the 03 while in the 80s the aim was to make quartz as cheap as possible, this is also true with the Casiotron of the 70s and the F series of the 80s. Back in time quartz was really a "premium" production, that is the reason why I think it would be interesting to remake a SS variant.

    Also, most of the originals don't look great to the chromed case.

    Regarding the 77, how are the other functions? In particular timer and countdown, do they measure just up to one hour?

    Talking about retro-tech, I kind of like this :

    Is it a new design? I don't remember old Elektronikas with this case.

    Is the module Chinese? The description states "Elektronika 79".
