RETRO CASIO WATCHES

Hello and welcome back... Something a little different.

For the first time in 20 years or so, I have now started to wear a watch. I decided all those years ago that i was not going to be bounded by the hands of time.

So what changed my mind?

When i was 17-18, I was a huge lover of all things electronic, and why not.. Most things back then around 1987-88 were made in Japan.
Apart from my beloved AIWA Walkman than i paid a small fortune for, I owned a Casio Data watch. This was a watch that not only told the time (that's handy) but it could store 30 phone numbers and names in its memory, back then this was a huge thing, so was the calculator watch... Very Battlestar Galactica
Being i was into radio scanning at the time (still am) i would store radio frequencies into my watch, that way when i traveled, i had all the info i needed.

Fast forward 30 years or so, i stumbled across a eBay seller selling Casio watches at an amazing price. I hadn't seen these watches in years, turns out Casio are still making these retro watches.... There is a huge demand for watches that are reliable, cheap and is.. a watch.. not a health buddy, not a GPS tracker, just a watch.

The watch i brought was the same as i got when i was 18 (not made in Japan anymore but its still a genuine Casio), The Casio Databank watch. The seller of these watches is in Sydney (Australia) and is called "Monster Trading Store" with a little green monster for a logo.
Post was fast... i'm talking 2 days.
Of course it will take longer if you are interstate or overseas but still, they kept me up to date with everything and that's the way business should be like. I was impressed.

I am very happy with my Casio Databank watch (only cost me $30 inc Post)... I am a happy customer living a childhood memory with my new watch.

Check out the different styles... so good.
