So I acquired a, Armitron 20/4000 2105(3) JAPAN MOVT, watch from my grandfather. I've been trying to find out a little bit about this watch like the year it was made etc. But could not find anything about it. Perhaps someone on here could help me or now a little about it. Thanks!





I attached a photo That i found on the internet. Hopefully it helps.

A relatively low priced vendor of watches, Armitron is available at Target and other big box vendors. The watches are made in Asia and I have never seen any that were non-quartz. It is really impossible to date this watch as the design reflects no specific era beyond post-1990.

They are the modern equivalent of Ingersoll dollar watches. Many are put into drawers when the owner discovers a battery replacement can cost almost as much as the watch. Then someday the drawer's collection is brought to a kiosk watch vendor for new batteries and the owner suddenly has a bunch of watches! :)
