Commodore LED classic watch

This is a NOS watch (new old stock) Commodore LED watch, and it’s in mint condition. This is the steel strapped Commodore LED watch version.

This watch is slightly more expensive than the CBM watches we have on the previous page. “Why Rusty? Why?” I hear you cry. “You’re nowt but a bloody robdog”. Well, only partly true. These watches are a tad more expensive than the others cause they’re not as easy to source and a little more expensive to buy. Honest.

We can also supply spare LED watch modules, red screens, cases etc etc, all mint and boxed should you need them. It’s got an excellent LED display, very clear and sparkly. It should do, it’s a brand new watch, but I’m always impressed by life’s simple pleasures. Only managed to bag one photo of the LED display in action, as you can see below – that’s ’cause my wrist action wasn’t quick enough. This is probably my favourite of the Commodore watches I have in stock. In fact I’m wearing one at the moment. When you buy this one, you’ll see why I love this watch so much…

I have an old 70s Helbros LED watch, and the display is not working any more (was recently, but has decided to quit). The module is 29mm in diameter, and about 7.5mm thick, with push contacts at the 2 and 3 o’clock positions, and takes two LR44 batteries. Is this a standard size module, and if so, do you have replacements? Also, how much would a module be? Regards, Mark

I need help with finding a led module for a Texas Instruments #102.Any luck getting one?

January 14, 2012 at 8:31 pm

I bought from Amsterdam Holland a COMMODOORE blue plate watch and I lost the glass.

Is this the same company?

Can I send the watch for repairs

There are memories on this watch .

If someone can help with any information I ‘d appreciate

Without seeing a photo it’s tough to say, but I’d imagine it would be the same Commodore company… very much doubt they do repairs anymore though. Your best bet is to find a Commodore / LED enthusiast online. Any helpers here?

Hi Les, I don’t really sell just LED modules, cause it usually works out about the same price to sell the whole model… if you want to buy a complete Commodore LED watch and take it apart, you’re more than welcome to try! Cheers! Mail me at for more info….

Hi retro man, would you be. AbLe to repair my silver CBM watch, same as above?

Happy to pay for a new module and fitting and batteries, How much would you charge?


September 1, 2012 at 11:12 am

What batteries does the Commodore LED classic take?Mine works, but keeps erratic time shortly after reseting time . Date & seconds are working fine. Is this a sign that the module is faulty

Take it to any watchmaker and they can test the battery connection – or install the correct batteries for you to test. Could be that the module is starting to become faulty though… 🙁

I have an original 1975 ‘Palo Alto’ Commodore Timemaster that I bought new at the time. Swiss case, flat screen. Still in the box and with original paperwork. It looks like the module needs replacing. Can you help me and maybe give me a clue about how much it may be worth

Hola muy buenas;¿Alguien sabe o tiene por aqui modulos del fabricante fairchild para un Yema fairchild de 1977?.
Acbo de llegar por aqui,muchas gracias

April 4, 2014 at 7:09 pm

Hi Retro Man,

Two questions, if you may:

Can you tell us anything about the batterylife of this model, perhaps with some usage level info based on your experience (like 5-10 timechecks a day) ? I guess this has two 357 batteries inside, but those are quite small ones… Do they last for some weeks? Months? Even a year?

Some sources selling this same item clearly show in the product pictures they have that the company emblem is imperfect / not full. Just hoping the ones you sell do have a good quality “C=” marking on the front glass?

Thanks in advance! And BTW: your cataloque is full of really impressive time machines 😉

With Regards,

Well Alan, things are a little odd here on planet earth since you’ve been in a coma. We have a lunatic reality TV star in charge of the Free World. I suggest you sell that C5 and invest your cash in Commodore LED watch. Enjoy it for the short few months left before said lunatic blows us all up.
