Today I was transported back in time 18 years as I received a gift in the form of a classic timepiece – the Casio F-91W. After not having worn a watch for almost a year it took a few hours before I stopped looking at other ways to tell the time – laptop, cooker, mobile phone, iTouch – all watch substitutes over the past 12 months. Now of course, I have this genius piece of digital technology.
The Casio F-91W first came out in 1991, in fact I’m almost sure I had one back then. It has a whole heap of features such as a stopwatch, alarm, light and even the ability to switch between 24hr and 12hr time display at the click of a button. It is also Water Resistant (read Splash Resistant), hence the WR emblazoned in red on the front.
One look at the screen tells me the time, date and day – there is no doubt that I have on my wrist a king amongst watches, one that I wholly recommend to anyone.
