One day I will find back my Casio 79QGS-39 Universal Calendar watch from the 1980s

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/09/08

I think it’s Jan Wildeboer that referred me to the vongestern Blog: Smartwatch 1986: Casio DBX-100 [WayBack] entry.

It’s about database watches (and also shows the DB-520 and DBC-610) which were of the first smart watch generations and reminded me I’ve misplaced my Casio 79QGS-39 Universal Calendar digital LCD watch from the same era (mine was chrome unlike some of the Casio 79QGS-39 images  around).

Back then smart watches were focusing on very few things, but did them well, unlike today where they try to be jack of all trades: Niemand braucht Computer in Uhren. Der Artikel fängt langsam an, aber macht gute Punkte zum Ende hin. – Kristian Köhntopp – Google+ [WayBack]

Hopefully one day I’ll find my smart watch back, get it working and can post some pictures. The battery should be easy to replace though:
