In the 1983 movie "BLUE THUNDER": what's that
Casio with Imperial Seal of Japan countdown timer?
(or the chrysanthemum-flower-shaped) It was worn
by Officer Murphy, played by Roy Scheider(from JAWS).
He used it to check his sanity..... :-d

Thanks for any info! :thanks

It is indeed an AA-85 (103) and because of the movie is a highly collectible vintage Casio.



cheers,
There is also a more common version of this watch. Model no. a201 also can be called aa81. It also has module 103 that has really unique animations during alarm sounding and the alarm can be switched between 10 different tones. You can also switch from analog to digital time keeping. All this from can you believe 1982. Probably one of the most interesting time pieces I have ever seen.

Thanks! That's exactly what I was looking for... |>

Casio must have made very few of these watches. :-(
I couldn't find it on Ebay. There's another model
very similar to the AA-85 on Ebay and its current
high bid is almost $200.(for a 20+ years old Casio!!!)

I thought that thread was only for G-shocks.

Do we want to start another thread for Casio non-G-Shocks in movies?

Loadsa TV shows and movies with non-G Casios... Big Bang Theory I believe Raj wears a calculator one. Moss and Roy in IT Crowd wear some too, but they may actualy be G's...
