Casio Casiotron 04-502

Back to the retro again today!
When Casio first released their LCD watches in 1974, they started the Casiotron range. The Casiotron was the first digital watch which could show year, month, date, day, hour, minute, and second.

I think that this is one of the limited re-release versions from 1997,which were issued to commemorate the first Casiotron, but it could be one of the originals from around 1975. It uses an old-style LCD module with hour and minute on the display, along with a bar across the top for seconds (-a marker flashes every second above a number showing which group of 10-seconds).

The watch has a model number of 04-502, using the 04 module used by other 1970s models.

  1. It's a very nice vintage Casiotron Watch from early 1970's made by Casio, those are very tough watches and very high quality made. You can also called them Early G-Shocks.
