Old school Casio calculator watches...
« on: November 19, 2012, 03:31:07 pm »
Hello.

Does anyone still wear and use one? I do and since I was a teen(ager). Yes, I am old school and still love them. I currently wear Data Bank 150 model. I will have to get a new one one day...

Thank you in advance. :)

I have a Data Bank watch, but I'm not sure what model it is, but it's really useful having a calculator at all times.

Yep. Also, its alarm, scheduler, etc. too even though they are limited.

Heya and welcome here. My bro used to have one but he forgot to remove it from his wrist before going in the pool and it died. D: We could play Tetris on it. Lots of people in elementary school had such watch too.

I saw some at stores the other day. They still had an early 90's or even late 80's design, so they looked old school. Nowadays I only wear a watch at work, though.

I always wear a watch. I can't live without feeling it around my wrist. But mine isn't a DataBank, it's a GShock. :P

I always wear a watch, but I've always liked the analog with actual numbers on it. I've only had Timex's and Armitron's(I think thats how you spell it)

Hello ant, welcome to Omnimaga! You should head over and <a href=http://www.omnimaga.org/index.php?board=10.0>introduce yourself.</a>
I had one of these watches once upon a time, but alas; like DJ_O's brother mine died in a tragic swimming pool accident as well. D:

I used to wear one everyday, but stopped after I got my cellphone. I am annoyed because the watch always get stuck everywhere in narrow places, plus it's annoying when I wear winter clothes x.x

I have one of those fancy all stainless steel watches with dual analog/digital display. Wear it everyday like I wear my glasses­.

I should adjust it at the right time one time.

I don't have a calculator watch. I wanted one when I was young tho. (That really sounds like I'm already about 80 years old, lol)
I have an analog/digital watch tho :D

I want a watch with a built in soldering iron and hex screwdriver. I always need to have those around!
If you like my work: why not give me an internet?
