If you lived through the 70s, 80s and part of the 90s and that “Made in Japan” thing, surely you remember the Casio watches that began to flood the watch shops from all over Spain and a good part of those businesses that were called “confiscations”, and that brought the latest technology of the time. Who did not learn with the Japanese brand to know the world time, or the altitude, do math with their calculators or handle a stopwatch to know who was the fastest in the neighborhood?
Five special models for geeks
Surely many think that the best way right now to show that geek spirit of being up to date in technology is to wear a smartwatch on your wrist. It doesn’t matter if it’s an Apple Watch or any other smart watch model, it’s logical to believe that with one of those we can do practically whatever we want, from memorizing a workout to listening to music or making calls in the middle of nowhere. But if you really want to go through some real geeks, then you will have to travel to the pastto those Casio brand watches that have marked us over the last 35 years.
That is why We have decided to select five designs that do not go out of style. That maintain that classic spirit of the 80s and 90s with very basic and elementary functions but that will return your wrist to what it originally was: a place to check the time, allow us to set an alarm and little else.
So if you want to be a real geek, one of the good ones, here we leave you five alternatives to make you feel a little younger. That also matters…
Classic Casio model that has a very recognizable design and that it only allows us to know the time in which we are (in 12 or 24 hour format). It also has an automatic calendar and a synthetic resin strap. Its case is resistant to shocks and water as it is capable of withstanding small splashes and its battery has an estimated duration of 7 years.
If in the 80s you didn’t have a black Casio, the other was silver, like this one that we bring you that has a wonderful retro look, backlight on the screen to see the time at night, stainless steel strap, chronometer and automatic calendar. What do you need more for?
Casio Quartz Watch
In the 90s Casio made a leap in quality and started adding many more functions to their watches. This model is a living example of that and on this occasion we will be able to wear the world time of up to 29 different time zones on our wrist. It also tells the time, has the possibility of setting five alarms, a stopwatch, timers, an automatic calendar, water resistance of up to 10 bar (about 100 meters) and a battery that lasts 10 years.
The Japanese brand was one of the pioneers in putting a calculator on our wrists, so such a design had to be in this selection. This model offers LED light to see the screen at night, telememo, stopwatch, option to set up to five alarms, automatic calendar, calculator, currency converter and alarm clock. Its battery, as in the case of the quartz model, also lasts a whole decade.
We bring this model as homage to the many series that Casio released in the 90s focused on facilitating the practice of different sports disciplines, or adventure activities. In this case we will bring you an ideal model for fishing, which indicates the lunar phases and the best time to obtain better pieces, alarm functions, stopwatch, timer, waterproof with immersions of up to 100 meters and LED light to see the screen. in the evening. Complete is to say little and more geeky than these models… impossible!
