Casio Twincept ABX-53 World Time Databank

Today's watch is an Ana-Digi, but this time, the digital display is over the top of the analogue dial.

It is one of the Casio Twincept models, the ABX-53, and uses a 1326 module to power the analogue, and an electronic dial.

The modes are shown on the LCD display, and the watch has telememo, world time (complete with an LCD display picture of the world - pictured below), alarm, and stopwatch.

It was originally released in the late 90s, and was sold for 11,000yen. The watch seems to be still on sale, for a normal price of around $65. The full model appears to be ABX-53CU-8A, which features a similar black leather strap.

Instructions for the 1326 module can be found here
