Citizen Ana-Digi Temp Retro 8982 module

Another watch I've chosen based on weather today! It's the coldest day of the year today, so I thought I'd mark the occasion with a temperature sensor watch.

Actually, it's another of my Ana-Digi Temp watches. These watches were released by Citizen, starting in 1982, and were the first ever electronic temperature measuring watches. I have a whole page about this range including history and the models, and the link can be found at the top right of the page.

This model appears to be one of the earlier models released in the range. From the serial number, I'd guess this was made in 1989. It features an 8982 module (-the range had models starting at 8980 through to 8989). This is the same module as the earlier posted Citizen ProMaster Ana-Digi Temp, but the watch is a very different shape.

The full model number is 8982-089618, and the strap part number is 25185.

As with most Ana-Digi Temp watches, it has two electronic dials, and 3 windows with LCD displays. The LCD display and right hand dial show different things depending on the mode (and full details are in the overview page). The watch modes are dual time, alarm, stopwatch, and of course temperature, and there is a small bulb based light for the LCD.
