Features and Specifications
- Time display in 12-hour or 24-hour format. In regular timekeeping mode, the current home time is displayed to the second, along with the month, date, and day of the week, without any button presses.
- Auto-calendar correctly calculates month lengths, leap years and days-of-the-week between 1985 and 2029.
- Alarm: One alarm. An unusual feature is that in addition to the hour and minute, a month and/or date may optionally be set, so the alarm will only sound during the specified month or on the specified day of the month.
- Time signal (hourly chime.)
- Dual time: Hours and minutes can be set separately for a second time zone (seconds are synchronized with the home time.) The current home time is also displayed in dual time mode.
- Countdown timer: Can be set for any duration from one second up to 24 hours, in one-second increments; optional auto-repeat function. The current home time is also displayed in countdown timer mode.
- Stopwatch: 1/100th second, with one split; rolls over at 24 hours.
- Illumination: Backlight is via a tiny incandescent bulb at the left edge of the display.
- Reminder mark: A peculiar feature seldom seen on newer watches, this is a user-enabled display flag which slowly blinks in all modes. It has no function except to serve as a visual reminder to the wearer.
- Shock-resistant design, intended to survive a 10-meter fall.
- Water resistant to 200 meters.
- Battery: One lithium button cell, CR2320 in older models (module 691) or CR2016 in newer models (module 901.) Either was expected to last ten years or more.
I still have the watch since 1994. Over time the rubber band dried up and broke in to pieces. Got a new band around my watch and it is like new again. Did everything u could think of with it, including diving, jumping out of airplanes etc etc.
