Citizen 8981

Another joblot find and also with a broken screen however I knew I had a spare from a watch I was given a while before.   A straightforward screen swap was needed although  I had bad segments for quite a while until I realised there was an issue with the battery retainer. Fixing that seemed to fix all problems on the screen. 

The typical Analog / Digital display combined with a temperature gauge. These watches are on the rise and becoming ever more desirable with pricetags to match.   I am lead to believe that this model with the black screen surround it quite rare also. 

I did a video on fixing this one which you can watch here:
