    NOS Micronta LCA LCD Hands Watch

    Hi, this is my first post.

    I have frequented this site for years due to my love of watches.


    I felt I had to share my latest find. Have been after this exact watch for 20 odd years ever since having one in 1990.

    It's a Tandy/Radio Shack Micronta watch with digital hands.

    I couldn't believe it after hours and hours of searching Google and the eBay notifications every time a Micronta item was added, that I finally found it.

    It came from Canada and I received it last week. Still in its original packaging and unused with the screen protector in it still.
    As expected, the strap has serious resin rot and literally crumbled upon bending it. The case seems ok apart from a little crack and the module is perfect. Unfortunately the strap isn't replaceable due to it being bonded or part of the case.

    Congrats! That is quite some dedication. Glad it payed off.
    "A watch is ruined, not by time, but by bad handling. To run well it should be wound regularly, cleaned yearly, and, if injured, taken to a competent, practical man. A ​Waltham watch properly cared for will last a lifetime." -American Waltham Watch Co. Catalog (c) 1900
    “When your watch gets out of order you have a choice of two things to do: throw it in the fire or take it to the watch-tinker. The former is the quickest.” -Mark Twain
