Alba Y797 LCD

I'd always associated the big watch brands with the more complex watches, but this is an incredibly basic watch.

The watch is by the Seiko brand Alba, and uses the Y797 module. This is the most basic Alba watch I've come across, with only time and date display. The LCD panel does have 6 digits and a pm marker, but is not used for much.

The case and strap are both stainless steel, but it has a very light and hence cheap feeling. It also has a basic design with very little additional information.

The full model number is Y797-4A00, but there is no serial number, so I can't identify the date (but I'd guess 80s).
