There are different Green BORG clocks. They don't have a "curtain" that goes over the display. They do have a glass or hard plastic lens, haven't tried to remove the lens on mine so can't say for certain if its glass or plastic.Follow-up: the display is black on white.
I have a May build '86 with 3 buttons and a May build '87 with no buttons. I'd gladly trade them for analog clocks. My 8s read as 3s since they're half burnt out and I never can tell what time it is!Most of the '87s I've come across have the 3 button, but like I posted in the other thread, I did say that they may have changed in late '87. Either way, they're interchangeable, as you said. So, could we say that the correct version for an '87 is both LED/LCD, no button and three button (since Guido probably grabbed whatever he had in the parts bin at the time)?
Yeah the LED version has a colored lens, so if you could find a piece of flat broken tail light, you might be able to finagle something, since the LEDs themselves are clear. My 3 buttoner works fine too. It's the LCD one that looks like Chinese arithmetic.I'd like an easy way to change the color from green to red, blue, or orange. Sticking a gel in the LED version won't do anything but change the shade of green to something bluer or darker green. I'm too much of a chicken to try and pop out the lens in my clock. Luckily, my numbers are still working, so I can tell what time it is when I do get around to setting the clock.
