Just for fun, a rare black Seiko RoboAir A861 talking watch

Post23 Mar 2018, 02:06

Hi,
I am aware about the first series of the talking watches in Digital Watch history, mentioned in Doensen's Book:
https://doensen.home.xs4all.nl/q7.html
But You have to accept that a watch like below one, deserves at least (a very small) review:

This is the FIRST GENERATION Seiko Robo Air Japanese talking watch (the first in the Seiko AIRPRO series - cca 1998- watches) - and sporting a Seiko A861 module, derived from early Seiko A860 talking watch module.[/color]

And mine - in the photo below - is the almost "mythical" BLACK ROBOAIR (please try to find another BLACK one on Google!!!) :grin1: , but - as most of the present day Seiko's ROBOAIR/AIRPRO watches - it came with a NOT FUNCTIONAL "AIR PUMP" !!!

Please let me know if You want more info or You really have a broken ONE to provide me some spares, because I really like its talk in JAPANESE LANGUAGE, and I may want its PUMP restored!!! :grin1: ...
Regards,
:dwf:
Every watch should have its own story...consequently, a watch collector has to be a good storyteller :)
