This Limit LCD is the smallest LCD watch we have ever seen, complete with box, guarantee and instructions too.


There is a fair bit of guesswork in this.  The papers are not completed, nor do they have any date references on them.  The movement is not documented anywhere we can find, and we have searched for similar watches and not found a single other example.  Based on the styling, and the technology, we estimate this was made in the mid eighties but we would welcome any other information.


Limit have been making watches since 1912, but this has to be one of the rarest – possibly the smallest LCD watch ever made!  The watch could be considered New Old Stock.  That would explain why the papers are not completed too.  The bracelet has all the six removable links still in place, and does not show any wear through the gold plate.  All the functions work perfectly – time, date and seconds, and we will set the watch up for your timezone too before dispatch, along with a new battery.  The module (movement) is a Japanese Sanyo item, but we can not identify the number.  The box has the hinges completely broken off – that’s the only negative to report.  While this was never designed to compete with luxury Swiss brands, the chances of finding another in this condition now make this a far rarer watch.  We have shown this Limit watch next to a modern watch in the video, just to show how tiny this is.

This watch will be supplied with the original presentation box, papers and our Certificate of Authenticity.
