Hello everyone,

I'm glad to share my latest acquisition: it's part of the Timber Cruiser series, produced presumably during the late '90 - early '00.

Analog-digital chronograph in a very appealing (to me) stainless steel cushion case. Screw-back, bead-blasted finish and 200m WR, common features of all the Timber Cruiser line.
The crystal is mineral and lightly domed.

The module (1325):

the tiny digital display mimic a day date window, but retains a crispness and a legibility that is one of the higher that I've see (for comparison the day indicator of my Casio Royale is bigger but very poor...).
Digital and analog parts are synchronized and separated: it will never end up with a deviation and can be set to show two time zones. In fact, setting the time is a bit tedious: you'll need to set the digital first, then with the help of the stop hacking sync the analog part.

The chronograph takes two subdials, seconds at 12 and minutes at 9. Purists of Chrono may be upset of this, for me it's not a big deal. The real issue is the reset: on the worst case (under 60sec timings) the seconds subdial has to make 60 revolutions, zeroing also the minute subdial. I think it's due to using only one motor with the two registers mechanically coupled. Also, split time/lap is not present, but (and this is a big plus) start/stop is directly accessible by pushing the upper right button in any mode. Measuring capacity 60min with 1/100 precision.

Of course there is daily alarm and hourly signal, and at 6 there is a nice 24h day-night indicator. The dial has no lume, but a nice indiglo-like feature triggered by the upper left button.

Time to show this guy:







hoping you enjoy this presentation, feel free to comment and correct any mistake and grammatical horror that I've presumably made.
Thank you
Cheers
Ale

That's a very clever integration of a digital display.. I'm impressed ^^
Lovely pictures, too.

Are the hands colour-coordinated (red for chrono, white for time)? By your description it sounds like the chrono hands are the subdials (red, red, white) and central 3 hands are all time (white, white, red) - that so?

Chrono has only two subdials (at 12 and 9 in red)
the white 24h subdial at 6 is coupled with the main hands, basically a day-nigh indicator.
I'll check what I've writed, thank you ;-)

I'd never seen or heard of this watch until about three days ago when I saw one on ebay. I really liked the look of it then, and your review just reinforces that opinion. Really nice looking watch.

I've also discovered this on the italian bay, while random searching for others vintage Casio. Never seen before. It was love at first sight, then the result is here.
Thank you ;)

To the OP, you really need to pop this thread over in the Casio subforum if you have not already done so. There are quite a few Vintage Casio collectors over in our forum. THe watch looks super sweet BTW. Yes, those are hard to come by.

Cool watch, haven't seen it before. Reminds me of a Sinn 142
Thank you
Yes, I've found a photo comparison after digging the Net for information about these models.

Thank you Rocat
I may have made a n00b mistake...
What do you suggest? Opening a new thread in the Casio section with a link to this one? Asking a mod to have this moved?
At this point I'm afraid of making another rookie error... :-s ;-)

You did not make a mistake. I just gave you a suggestion where more views would come from Casio fans.

Use the little triangle on the bottom left of your opening thread. It has an exclamation mark. That is how you send a message to the moderators. Ask them to move the entire thread over to the Casio forum.

Agree with goody2141, this would be an excellent and cheap way to scratch a Sinn chron itch....depending on how rare it is, that is.
