whilst the first looks like a Casio F-81W

I put the images side by side to check the details out. These look really close, but I don't know if we're quite there yet.

the second pics i think is not right. I had that watch too. The black lines on the top and bottom are not there. I hope we get this, as I want to have a similar watch!

i think i found the Variant on the first watch...it is definitely a Casio F-91W...but it is part of the colour series. this watch was available in many different colours of both strap and banding, so to be movie accurate, you'd need the F-91W with Black strap and White detail banding.i think you are right, mr0072003...the black banding on the strap looks like a reflection, which makes the watch look like the Casio AX-510

This will be interesting to watch and see what you guys can dig up. I'll keep my eyes peeled at flea markets and ebay for the time being for anything that may resemble this sort of watch.

So, I'm going to put an end to this, once and for all! ;)

Both of Ray's watches in Ghostbusters 2 are Calteck watches.

I'd looked at hundreds of Casios, Armitrons and Timex's... had trawled department store catalogues and Casio and Seiko yearbooks, yet found nothing. Eventually, I acquired a 4k version of the film, and went through frame by frame. I got lucky - on one frame (and I think it may be a single frame), you can pretty much read the words "Calteck" on the watch:

Image

After a good ol' fashioned face palm, I started looking at Ebay, Goodwill online, Marketplace postings, etc - trying to find the watches.

Sadly, I haven't found the exact model, and it seems difficult to unearth more on the company. At one point, they appear to have had a wholesale outlet in Los Angeles. Here are a couple of similar models of Calteck watches to the black and silver digital watches in GB2:

Silver Calteck in the movie:

Pay close attention to the strap - Calteck really loved this strap, it features on almost all of their watches.

Similar Silver Calteck model:

(Note: I own this watch, and can confirm it is silver, not rose-gold - though Calteck's finish picks up that colouring in certain light.)

Similar Black Calteck model:

Hope this helps, it feels good solving such a long-standing question. If anybody is lucky enough to find the identical Calteck model to the black digital watch, PLEASE share high-res pictures. Would love to see one some day. :sigh:
