    What watch is this from Jurassic Park?

    I was watching Jurassic Park and you get a few closeups of the watch Muldoon wears in the beginning as he's trying to save one of the workers from the Velociraptor. At first I thought it was a Seiko H558 of Arnold fame, but after pausing and looking it's gotta be something else that had a ana/digi screen. Maybe a Citizen? The compass on the strap also threw me off. Here's the clip, and a few large screen shots I captured. It's a really nice looking piece and I'd love to see if one of you were capable of identifying it.

    With what appears to be a small GMT or possibly compass in the band, I would hazard a guess at it being a Breitling.

    Hi, Im new here. But I found this fun to research a bit. The Compass seems to be no more than a compass clip on Amazon.com: SE - Compass - Watch Band Clip On, Navigation: Home Improvement,

    from the looking around, being its a movie from 1993, and the watch is probably an older 90's watch. and the watch band being the rubber kind, i think its a casio.

    This is quite the challenge, but if anyone can figure out the brand and model of a 20 year old fashion watch/studio prop, it is WUS. Here is what I have come up with, I believe this is the same movement as the Jurassic Park watch, based on location of the analog dial, matching hands, pusher location, similar design aesthetic, etc. The logo also looks similar. Unfortunately no higher resolution was available. I found the image on the bay, and the auction said the brand was "Eisenegger". My hunch at this point is that the watch is a $9.99 department store piece with a clip on compass as NixonFan supposed. Hopefully someone else can take the research further.

    edit: Another photo of the same movement. This one was found on the bay by forum member mjbernier back in 2008:

    Yeah I also saw a few Armitron's that looked really similar. I suppose an old Casio could possibly be the culprit as well.

    The bezel does not seem to match with the Armitrons.

    Looks like some kind of vintage Casio. But I could be wrong.

    Looks like a Timex variant. This one is dubbed the "Southampton":
