Just found this thing for 2 bucks at a thrift store, threw a battery in it and it's working very well... but I can't figure out what's up with it. It doesn't have a brand name anywhere, just a McDonalds logo. But it's not a standard Happy Meal piece of crud, it's a stainless steel watch (100% STAINLESS STEEL is engraved in the back of the clasp). It says MELODY ALARM on the front and has a cool days-of-the-week marker along the top of the display. The back says nothing but MADE IN HONG KONG. Any ideas what it is... if it's a rebadged Casio, maybe?
Thanks so much for your help.
Martin

These early LCD watches were so cheap when they were introduced they were often used as incentive items in retail sales. I remember finding them in breakfast cereal boxes. This one looks to be a fairly standard LCD watch for it's time. Casio was the biggest maker. But many were made by US semi-conductor firms that contracted with Hong Kong firms for actual assembly of US movements.
