Casio Retrograde Ultra Rare Vintage First Wrist Camera Digital Black Rubber Strap Watch WQV-2-1DR

The WQV is the original Wrist Camera from Casio that was first released in September 2000. The watch was initially sold in two versions, both had the same technical specifications except that one had a resin case and strap whilst the other had a stainless steel one. This watch is the first digital camera watch in the world and so for that fact has both innovative and perhaps one day historical value. With the watch you can take and store up to 100 monochrome photographs ready to view on screen or upload to your PC.

For the rest of you, the WQV-1 is a compact digital watch that has a digital black and white camera built into it. Thanks to the 1Mb memory, the watch will store 100 images in its databank at 120 x 120 dpi (20mm x 20mm) in 16 bit greyscale monochome. Via Infra Red the images can then be beamed from the watch to a PC (in JPEG format) when used with an Infra red receiver or images can be sent directly to another WQV-1 watch. The watch works just like a normal digital camera and so as soon as you have taken the picture you can review your results on the watch screen. You can then either keep the image or delete it and take another. Better still the watch has a facility to type a person’s name, details or phone number on that page and so you can call up a person’s photo and then see their details.

The watch also features contrast controls so that you can set the contrast of the screen in different light and also has a facility to tell the watch if you are indoors or outdoors to help take better pictures. Photos can be taken in three ways. In “normal” node you just press the shutter button and you have a normal monochrome photo, in “Merge” mode you can take two photos and each will fill half the screen so that two images are merged together. There is also an “art” mode that takes the image and turns it into a black and white blob that a few of us might call “art”.

The watch also tells the time, has a 1/200 second stopwatch, a timer and 5 alarms.

Power for the watch comes from a CR2032 battery.
