    Seiko Travel/alarm watch?

    Picked this up for a couple bucks this weekend at yard sale. Unused, appears brand new in box with suede holder. Closest I could find on ebay seems to be from 70s? Anyone have any experience with something like this? Came with warranty papers but no instruction. I can't even see how to change the batteries. caseback has # 7421 002G. Seikosha co. 881099

    Snazzy find! If the case back has no obvious covers on a battery holder, it might be that one of the sides (probably the left, looking at it from the front) comes off....?!

    That's really cool!
    More photos please from all the sides :)
    Do I see a crown on the right bottom?

    Thanks Hartmut. I believe you are correct that the left side will pull off. Not sure but I did sense some movement there with some fingernail pressure. Will explore further.

    And yes, laik, That is a crown on the right and so far have not figured out its purpose.. Will need to get battery power first. I also need to check online for manuals.

    I will post more pictures when I get home this evening.

    Additional pictures. Left side twists to expose battery compartment but still not obvious how to change. Might need to unscrew that Philips head screw? The crown to the right does pull out and then turns and clicks. Maybe it changes the mode or watch functions.

    I think You should try the screw on the left which reveals after turning the stand leg

    Should have shown you this pic. I did unscrew and the left portion of the compartment comes off and reveals a transistor and a little of the innards. The right third is apparently the battery compartment. Still not sure how to find the actual battery. I tugged on that side a bit and didn't pull out easily. Felt that my impatience was about to damage something. I will play more this weekend with more time. Thanks.

    I have one of those alarm clocks and I stuck the tip of a ball point pen in the indent on the battery case and it pulled right out. It takes two 386/301 batteries.

    Thank you Chad. Sounds right. I will give it a try. What function does the crown do?
