    Calling all Vintage digital watch buffs.

    Hi there. I use to have an old digital watch back in the 80's. I'm not sure if it was a casio, but probability is 95% that it was a casio. I researched my heart out, but I can't find it anywhere on the net.

    Sites that I searched on, quite a few, but mostly:
    casiodigitalwatches.com
    hometown.aol.de/kowloon2004/sensor1.html

    I bought it new in South Africa in the 80's. I don't know the model number nor do I have it's manual. All I have is my bad fading memory of it.

    I sort of drew it.


    Description of it:
    Black case. Black rubberish straps. It had a permanent black line in the middle splitting up the TIME (at the bottom) from the DATE (at the top). Not sure if the TIME digits were bigger, but I think so. Pretty sure it was LCD. It had 4 buttons. It was water proof. It had a light (not 100% sure). I am pretty sure it had alarm, beeped every hour, and stopwatch. The alarm, stopwatch, ect was displayed on the top display. Not sure if it had more functions, it could have had. So you would always see the time in what ever function you were in.

    That's about it. Anyone know what the h#ll I'm talking about?

    I did research the site previously, as well as:

    hometown.aol.de/kowloon2004/sensor1.html

    But I will recheck it! Thanks again. Maybe I skipped it :oops:
