Quartz LCD pen watch

This is a classic chunk of 70’s nostalgia and a really cool, functional, quality gift for someone. A very retro LCD pen watch by Quartz

Dating from circa 1979, this watch pen comes in its original box and is simply too cool.

I have just bought a 1970’s Panter Quartz pen watch but needs a refill, the refill it has is about 3 centre metres long, can anyone help here?

I recently found an old Compuchron pen watch in a friend’s house, I replaced the battery and it is “working” but I cannot adjust the minute and hours functions, the seconds tick by, the hour advances, and I think the calendar function. The latter is stuck at 1 1.

Does any who might have such a pen have the instructions and would be willing to make a copy and email or send to me, for which I will pay you?

Thank you.

Hi Mark,

I don’t have any Compuchron watch pen instructions, but I have taken a photo of instructions from another brand – maybe they will be similar to Compuchron functions?

Anyhoo, here you go:

P.S. I have a few of these watches in stock – both “boxed” and a few without boxes. If you’d like to purchase one, let me know! 🙂

Please let me know if you have a couple of these for sale, as I’ll buy them assuming they work. I’ve used these for the past twenty-five years, and now can’t find one anywhere. Hope to hear from you soon. Desperate in Denver!

I actually have one of these pens. It was made by Advance. I seem to have miss placed the instructions. I need to replace both the battery and re-fill the cartridge, but I don’t know what type of ink cartridge the pen takes,or how to replace battery. I pulled it apart months ago, but never completed the task. Not sure if it takes a parker type refill or not. Can you help me get it back together and functioning again? Thanks for any help
I like the pen as it has a similar feel to a Cross pen

In the words of Beyonce, if you want it put a ring on it.

Or even better, click “buy now” and buy it. I don’t do phone calls, sorry. Especially not to +91 wherever that is. It sounds like an expensive call. I’m a tight-walleted Scotsman ye ken.

Really!? I can’t remember that campaign. I remember the “thank Crunchie it’s Friday” payoff though. I loved a Crunchie me. Real teeth-rotters…

I have this same pen with digital time. Uses a Parker refill, but I cannot find any battery information, Thank you for the instructions post; that will help after I find the correct battery

I think it’s a fairly standard battery – it goes in the top of the pen when you screw it off. Just take it to any watchmaker in town they will sort you out!
