1981 JDM Seiko G757-5030 Quartz LCD Silver Wave “Digiborg”


The 1980’s saw no shortage of fun and interesting LCD displays by several manufacturers. Arguably, no one did it as well as Seiko, and few are more collectible than the G757’s. One in particular is considered a grail of sorts to LCD fans everywhere: the G757-5020 Sports 100, famously worn by Roger Moore in the James Bond film “Octopussy.” However, adding any G757 to your line up can be a worthwhile venture as each model is an entertaining piece of digital Seiko history, and a collector’s item in it’s own right. The Japanese referred to these models as “Digiborgs,” but whatever you call them, here’s your chance to call one your own. This example from May of ‘81 is the 5030 “Silver Wave.” It has a large display with a seconds totaler, day and date, and alarm and hourly chime indicator. The functions include a count down timer with graphic display, an alarm, a graphic dual time display, and a chronograph (stopwatch). The alarm chime will wake up a nostalgia you had long forgotten, and the incandescent back light (yes, it still works), will brighten your display as well as your smile. The G757 movement was disassembled and the circuit panel and zebra connectors were carefully cleaned. A fresh battery was installed, and all functions were tested and operate correctly. This one comes attached to the original tapered five-link bracelet and ships in the original inner box. It’s all original aside from a NOS crystal replacement. As setting the various functions is fairly involved, we’ve provided a link to the original manual below.
