Very nice watch!

Well, have you ventured inside the watch yet? :lol: Yeah, yeah, I know it working, that's not the point. :-P

No yet, Got it about a year and batteries are going strong.
But my other watch developed a problem, it was showing and extra digit,
very faint, the first digit, example, it show 15:00 at 5:00 pm. so I opened thinking batteries where bad installed new ones, maybe to tall and boyla!!
crack the circuit board. I was lucky to find the next day a parts watch for
$2.00 dollars at the flea market so I swapped good parts to the new find.
which as a better module a believe. the watch was made by Timeband,
I'm not sure about the module.http://img195.imageshack.us/img195/3915/imgp7216j.jpg

Ah, Litronix module....not the best quality item. See all those little pressed on contacts around the edge. Then you have all the exposed wire-bonds (those thin wires). And the board cracked. It couldn't have happened to a crappier module. :lol: Glad you were able to score a replacement cheap.

Yeah, that module was cheap. besides only showing the hour only, no date,
it was brittle. I remember hearing it crack when I was closing the back. Those wire bonds will be a nightmare to fix.
The Timeband module I found is a lot better.
