Got this in a lot with a 14 size Waltham I wanted, uses 2 3 volt batteries which are on the way, waiting to see if it works or not. All plastic housing on the movement. 308485.jpg 308486.jpg 308487.jpg 308488.jpg

Well, I installed the batteries today, took 10 minutes to set the time, that is how far I got, you have to push buttons just to see what time it is, this will go the way of the buffalo at the next mart, likely a give away. the lights blink everywhere when you push the button then it shows the time in hours, the closest 5 minute marker and then the additional minutes at the bottom, worse than texting while driving reading the time. 309014.jpg

I have one, bought as a gift for Noel Poirier son.
He loved it and it worked well.

They call it a "dashboard" display

Well, my IQ is a little below mensa but I probably have more common sense than half of them. the watch works well and keeps time but lord it is a beast and the big rubber band makes me feel like I should take it diving. Maybe I can check out how waterproof it is, ha ha. Adam, thank for letting me know I am not the only one with one of these. Just wish it made engine sounds when showing the time to go with the dashboard look. Thank goodness the batteries are cheap too.
