So my biological father, who I didn't really know due my parents divorcing when I was around 3, (I'm now 50!), and never being part of my life for his own reasons, passed away in January.
Because my sister and I are the only beneficiaries, we've had to deal with all of his possessions.
As part of speaking with various people that knew him, many things about his history have come to light. One of these is that he was one of the original machine shop employees for what was then Williams Grand Prix Engineering, based in a town called Didcot here in the UK.
He was working there in their first full F1 season and on into the early to mid 1980's.
I now have the contents of two storage units in my house and garage!! We've come across quite a few very interesting boxes, in amongst which were 4 or 5 old 80's Casio's.
I'm used to seeing G-Shock and Edifice collaboration watches, but can't say I've seen many older "normal" Casio's made as collabs.
So this is the watch that I've today cleaned up and put a new battery in. It's an F-90, Honda Racing Team International, also stamped Willams-Honda, so I'm guessing from around the mid 80's.
No light, and functions of alarm, stopwatch, timer, and one called "counter"?
Oh, and possibly the loudest Casio beeper ever!!
It's a cool little thing, probably quite rare, and in it's original box. No manual though, (211 module), and absolutely nothing to be found for the module on Google.
