Thanks pip, it took me a while to get it right because I had to wait 12 hours every time I've missed the 10:10:02. That's the reason why I didn't post last week. Uninteresting but true facts: I've got the delay on the camera release set to 2 seconds and press it at 10:10:00. It usually takes several tries to have the seconds digit displayed right as these old LCDs are very slow.

This is my black Seiko A159-5019 from 1978. Not in showroom condition as I haven't found a nice example yet. I've put it online if you are interested in the technical details or want to see more pictures: timeartpiece.com/watches/seiko-a159-5019-black

Until now almost all of the watches in my collection were digital Seikos but a while ago I've added more brands to my search tool. It took a while for me to adapt to the idea but of course not too long until other brands sneaked into my collection. Like this early Casio for example: timeartpiece.com/watches/casio-casiotron-x-1s-s-14 I must say that I'm really impressed by its build-quality. A heavy case and a solid bracelet all well crafted. And I even like the design.

Wow, what a fantastic collection! It's so well documented and presented. More importantly to me anyway, is how you've been able reveal the artistry of the digital domain. Makes me want too seek one out! Thanks for the great share.

pip I appreciate wearing my newly acquired Casios and haven't worn a Seiko lately - but will do again. I own two Casiotron X-1s S-14, the other one you've probably seen over at www.instagram.com/timeartpiece/
russtmurray thanks, you're welcome! I think you often start to appreciate a watch when you look at it in more detail. If you know more about its history or the way it was manufactured and so on.

This is the last Seiko A159-4000 in a series of 4 and I've put it online now: timeartpiece.com/watches/seiko-a159-4000-brown It is actually the rarest of the series and for a long time I wasn't even aware that it exists. Quiet a while ago I've found one with a dial in bad condition and thought it must be a discolored blue dial.
I've bought a new compatible crystal FY928-87 but unfortunately it didn't fit. The crystal the watch came with is scratched and I'm searching for an original BA0W80GN replacement now.
It's difficult to find a decent gold colored Seiko A133 as they are often corroded or don't have the original strap. So this is more a project watch than a definitive member of the collection. I've put it online anyway to make the trio complete.
