I have the classic Casio calculator watch, and Casio still makes retro watches for a very good price; like this one:



Timex has recently introduced a retro line of watches, though not as competitively priced.  Here's an example:

My everyday watch is the black plastic version of the Casio.

I used to have a calculator watch, but don't recall the make of it.

I also sent away for the James Bond watch that was released through Monster Munch crisps (I think.) The alarm was the Bond Theme. Had 5 of them and there was always something that didn't work on them  Sad

Ah well.

     I want that classic watch (Seiko?) that is programmable from an 8-bit computer, like a C64.  Smiley

     The original topic is at http://sleepingelephant.com/ipw-web/bulletin/bb/viewtopic.php?t=5704 but it's closed off unless you are a member of that forum.  I'm reposting the pictures here so you can see some awesome 1980's watches - the computer watch and the t.v. watch!
