Back in 1980 cutting edge technology included the cool C-80 Casio Calculator Watch.
Funnily enough retro watches are making a dramatic comeback, so before you start laughing on how awful these watches looked, take another look down the high street as these are selling fast!
Most of the reproduction retro watches range from £50 – £100. It is said that a retro watch is a good investment, and an excellent fashion statement. It will certainly turn peoples heads and start conversations. Almost all outfits can be complimented with a retro calculator watch or the LCD watches.
But talking seriously about these items in there day they were viewed as everything you could ever need. A watch, a stop-watch, a fashion statement, an alarm clock and of course a calculator.
Did you have a watch like this or one even worse? we would love to hear about it.
It's perfect! ih had one.
Nice blog and you have good taste in watches! Just wondered if I could do a cheeky plug for our retro watch website Watch Me Go, where we sell a variety of Casios and have Timex80s coming soon…
I had three different calculator watches. The Casio with the rubber buttons (similar to the one pictured above), one with a smooth button pad, and the databank watch that held contact information. What fun they were.
