Well, this is a rare prop. Used only in the episode named Liberation Day from V The Final Battle by Martin, Donovan´s friend, and later by Diana. They used this clock to take the antidote pill...you know, an antidote against the red dust. This is the clock that I am talking about:

At Martin's wrist:


At Diana's wrist:


After a research I did, I finally identified the wrist watch. Casio J-50 Pace Runner clock. Released back in the 1983. I was able to get one of them:







I am going to build the top part in 3D and print it to complete the prop. It is going to be really cool to be taking pills at cons when the clock warn us. So, stay tuned cause I will keep you posted. Hope this helps, cause I never saw this prop made around here.:love

Well, was not easy. Sent hundreds of emails all around the world and finally found it on eBay. It is almost new. No manual or original box, but who cares. Was not cheap at all, quite expensive for a clock. But is it catalogued as vintage. I am not a watch collector anyway.

My research did not only bring up the used watch, but a very good replacement. Casio GH-16:



This clock shares the same chassis and button colours. I am planning to create a vinyl decal, even if the original clock was painted. You can tell by this:



I don't want to ruin the clock with paint or permanent ink. Will be a shame to do that.

Ok, here is it. This is the top part model:









It will be ready to install two 3mm leds. Now working a method to fix that top part to the wrist band without damage it.

Good news, I found the correct wrist band. It is Casio model #283. I installed the replacement wrist band to my 3D printed prototype watch:







Store guy installed it for me anyway, but he did it backwards. Wont be any problem to transfer it to the final watch once It arrives. I paid 10 dollars for all. Guess you should be able to get them everywhere.
