For the A239 series, I think this series started a bit earlier then December 1979.

I have Golfer Lanny Wadkins A239 that he was given for being in the Japanese Goldwin Cup in ether 1982 or 1983 (It was a different name from 1971 to 1981 and a different name in 1984)

It has Goldwin Cup engraved at the top and his name on the bottom

This watch is dated November 1979 so for some reason there Seiko seemed to have at least one 1979 model hanging around to be used for this.

Here is a post about it

The pics were from the original seller, once I replaced the battery the display went back to normal (with a darker display). There are a lot of Timex, Casio, Citizen and Seiko digital watches that have good displays. Most of the time, the thing that kills them is a leaking battery.
