Thread: My Casio GD-8 race car gaming watch lives again!

  1. #1

    My Casio GD-8 race car gaming watch lives again!

    Over the weekend, I revived my old old .. very old Casio GD-8 race car gaming watch. Its one of the first Casio I ever owned that my father gave me when I was little, roughly 32 yr ago. Unfortunately the LCD has slight bleeding on the top right hand corner, but at least it doesn't affect the rest of the screen. Now I have a source a strap to replace the well aged rubber strap.



    It uses CR2016 battery, like some other G-Shocks that I have, which is handy. The white plastic "holder" is intact, just that it doesn't show up in the over exposed photo.



    And here's a Hyperlapse video in the time keeping mode.
