    Agree...the first digital watch as we know it was the Hamilton Pulsar in 1972, followed by the Seiko in '73. The Vietnam war ended in '75, so I'd say that even if the watch was around in the 70's it's unlikely he wore it during the war.

    You may be right. I've been describing it as Vietnam era for quite a while; but now I cannot determine how I got to that conclusion! Might have been brain ph**t; associating the watch with Robert Mueller and his own history in Vietnam... thanks for spurring me to try to get it right!

    I still love the watch though... ;)

    FWIW, I have seen a reference suggesting the DW-290 was available by 1974... which in no way confirms or disproves Mueller wearing it whilst he was in Vietnam...

    Great watch...no doubt of that...Casio's own timeline data seems to indicate it was not in their lineup during Vietnam, but either way, a great design. I wish I had hung on to a few of my watches from that era. I own 3 Casios currently & they're maximum bang for buck. I gravitate to analog, though--all my guitar amps are still tube type, too. :cool:

    Yes! Sub-tropical climate, lots of woods and water in my neighborhood, lots of snakes especially this time of year.
