    Off topic I never met my Grandfather but his Timex still works more then 40 years. *KNOCK ON WOOD*.

    It's a Gold Timex Electric Dynabeat Time Zone.

    I put a nice new brown croc pattern leather strap on it.

    Thanks, sorry I don't have a digital camera.

    But, the watch looks something like this, but my Grandfather's Watch is a GMT (extra hour hand) with Arabic Numbers, and I put a croc pattern dark brown leather strap on it.

    Pics from here.

    I took my Grandfather's watch in the shower and it's still water resistant.

    Yeah, that circle on the top of the caseback is the battery.

    And, when you put in a new battery. The caseback snaps in there really tightly.

    I know Rolex patented the "oyster case", but this watch really looks like a oyster.

    The crystal is even domed.
