The watch: Seiko M516 The movie: Ghost­busters (1984) The ac­tors: Bill Mur­ray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis

Plaza Watch International - - Time At The Movies -

A team of sci­en­tists searches for elu­sive ghosts and ghouls. This is the sim­ple – and bizarre – premise of this clas­sic movie di­rected by Ivan Reit­man, which was a huge suc­cess in the 80s. The film is also cel­e­brated by an hugely pop­u­lar sound­track. Ray (Dan Aykroyd), Egon (Harold Ramis) and Peter (Bill Mur­ray) are all seen us­ing new-fan­gled gad­gets, be­tween them a Seiko M516 that has the Voice Note func­tion­al­ity built into the watch, and it can be used to pick up Elec­tronic Voice Phe­nom­ena (EVP), which is “es­sen­tial” when at­tempt­ing to track down ghosts. This model was re­leased in 1983 and was pro­duced in a limited edi­tion. It is said that the qual­ity was poor but the price was high for its day. Its most strik­ing fea­ture was a voice recorder that of­fered a sur­pris­ingly tiny four or eight sec­onds of au­dio ca­pac­ity!
