Many are Japan made and although there are many, many lookalike digitals around from China, none of them have the pedigree of these or indeed the quality of the Japanese modules and displays, which in their day, were truly science fiction, and particularly in the actual design.
A great feature of the Automatic is that a) it doesn’t have a battery, b) it doesn’t require a light source and c) setting Time Zones or Summer Times is a simple case of crown out, move hands, crown in – job done. No instruction booklets
