A pain to get it working again but ready to go,module 811... Ultra basic functions: just only time and date,no light and chrono.
Dated 1977,nice green dial :grin1:

Looks like this just...might...be the same module used in the 3140 and 5140 Pulsar LCD watches. Same period, same digit style. Possible?

yes it's possible. Maybe this is an earlier version of the "Pulsar" Lcd module...it has no light. :scratch:

Hamilton (USA) and Ricoh had a trade agreement. Many later Hamilton movements (just prior to closing shop in the USA) were made by Ricoh, including both mechanical and digital”.
