    Timex LCA reissue

    Oh my... this takes me back to my school days when we'd all compare how many (pointless) functions our watches had.

    Obviously, already sold out

    Very cool. It's amazing how these things sell out before we've even seen they exist.

    Omg absolutely love that! I think I might even have had an original, or a friend did. Even as a school kid in the 80ís I was a fledgling wis!

    I never got into Timex digitals, but I do quite like that. Something of the G757 about it.

    Yes, I rather like that as well. I wonder what Zook thinks.
    My old clock used to tell the time and subdivide diurnity; but now it's lost both hands and chime and only tells eternity. PH

    Picked one up last week when they came back into stock, took me back to being a kid and it hasn't been off my wrist all week.

    I assume you are thinking of my comment on the yema thread. I much prefer this to the pacman watch they have out.

    I love all of these retro recreations as they remind me of my youth way back in the 1970ís !!

    They didn't sell out. Their stock was pulled because the majority of them had a defect where the actual LCD screen was noticeably crooked. I personally bought two of them, and they both had the defect. Sent them back. Timex is well aware of the issue and it should (hopefully) be resolved with the next batch.

    It's otherwise a cool watch, but their lack of quality control is disappointing.

    I suspect some of the crooked ones will eventually pop up on the used market. Once you notice the defect, it ruins the watch.

    It was very noticeable. I saw it as soon as I opened the box. The large rectangular display makes it really stand out.

    In fifteen years they will be highly collectible.
