    Do they still make/sell something like this?

    This type of watch is similar to what my dad got 15 years ago from japan.

    The bracelet similar to that still looks amazing. I bet if I was to polish it, it would look brand new. The watch is thin profile and stylish.

    THe watch on this pics is not so good looking, but you can see the analog/digital display which is good.

    Do they still make any of similar watches now? The only ones I see that come close are the 500-1000 dollar range seiko's


    thanks

    Hi Ilya -

    Not sure about these old CASIO watches but I'm always on the lookout for a SEIKO that I had when young.

    They were fairly new digital models and I think they called them SEIKO SPORTS 100 or 200..

    Really cool watches.. Wish I could find a new one for sale.

    Great memories

    The Seiko Sports 100 was the watch used by James Bond in Octopussy. As a result, even used ones change hands for over €700 EUR. NOS ones go for up to €1500 EUR!

    Hi SEAMASTER;

    That was one model I wanted whilst in Japan.

    The only one I found was brand new, with a dead battery and by memory was 56,000 YEN which I thought was a little high, but should have grabbed it..

    I'm more interested in the model with the three little black alrm speakers atop. Maybe one speaker but looks like three if you get what I mean.

    I love these old SEIKO's as they remind me of my high school days as many of us wore them

    This one?



    This model featured in Seiko's international marketing campaign to introduce the partnership between 007 and Seiko in The Spy Who Loved Me. Despite the watch not actually appearing in the final movie, Bond collectors will still pay over €500 EUR for a one in reasonable condition, as it did appear on posters.

    Smile Thanks for all the help..

    Hi Seamaster -

    Very similar, although with a three frame around three speaker slots. and the side buttons had a type of frame or sheath if that's the correct word.

    I've found something very close, although in a rather bad shape on EBay.
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=250031960485&ssPa geName=STRK:MEWA:IT&ih=015
    If I could find some new one's, including the OO7 LCD hands model, I would be done.

    Any ideas who sells these if any?

    Thanks once again for all your help here

    The best source I have come across for NOS Bond Seikos is http://www.bondtoys.de, but they ain't cheap!
