Hey guys found this today for $1, I really like it however it looks banged up! Dang... anyways it was only $1 fortunately the battery contacts look to be clean and taken care of, no corrosion! Haven't put a battery in yet. Some of the buttons are pressed down and aren't coming back up... is this a big problem? Would this watch be worth restoring or is it even possible haha? Any insight would be great, would love to add an LED watch to my collection, finally is this from the 70s? Model number is y739

Hi Spartcom5,

The watch was produced from the late 70's and is an LCD display rather than LED. With respect to fixing it you would be better off finding a working model. I did a quick check on ebay sold listing and a working model was purchased on May 4 for only $21.71. Cool watch.

Regards,

Hello


That particular watch was made in Sept 1980. I am thinking that model used a stylis to push the number buttons. It would have been located on the side of the original metal band.


You could always take out the module and see if the buttons were stuck or the rubber pad between the buttons and contacts on the module are damaged.


Take a pair of tweezers and grab that plastic tab that sits between the 2 battery hatches and gently pull up and the module will come out.
