Ah! Yes, I had one of those, battery lasted about 4minutes :(

Guess battery technology has moved on since the 70's... I hope!

I've still got an original 70's model. Very retro cool :cool:

I've got an absolutely mint Casio H101 Marlin (OK it's a bit later, with an LCD display) still in it's Casio flip box, with original instructions and price tag - it's still got it's plastic protection film on the stainless steel back !

Classic watch and one day I'll sell it. I never wear it but I just keep changing my mind every time I tell myself to put it on eBay

Me too. But back in 1973 there was no way I could ever afford one and I wouldn't pay £795 for one now.
I remember buying a Casio LED watch at the time, it cost a shade under £25. You always needed both hands to tell the time. It got thrown in a drawer after less than a year when I got fed up of changing the battery and was never seen again.
