Toshiba added to the scientific and statistical functions of the SLC-8260 some metric conversions, a clock with two alarm-times and a stopwatch. This unique combination was labelled SLC-8290WA and unfortunately not very popular.
internal design of the SLC-8290WA (left small picture) doesn't look like the usual Toshiba design. We
are missing details like the battery holder found in the LC-834WA.
We already discovered the manufacturer Sansyu
since we dismantled the SLC-8260 (right small picture).
