    I did some research a few years back, and I believe it is the Casio 103 AA-85.

    It is indeed an AA-85 (103) and because of the movie is a highly collectible vintage Casio.

    cheers,
    There is also a more common version of this watch. Model no. a201 also can be called aa81. It also has module 103 that has really unique animations during alarm sounding and the alarm can be switched between 10 different tones. You can also switch from analog to digital time keeping. All this from can you believe 1982. Probably one of the most interesting time pieces I have ever seen.

    Thanks! That's exactly what I was looking for...

    Casio must have made very few of these watches.
    I couldn't find it on Ebay. There's another model
    very similar to the AA-85 on Ebay and its current
    high bid is almost $200.(for a 20+ years old Casio!!!)

    I thought that thread was only for G-shocks.

    Do we want to start another thread for Casio non-G-Shocks in movies?

    Trains, Planes, and Automobiles:
    John Candy says, "I have $2 and... and a Casio"

    Overboard:
    The black Databank Calculator watch from the 80s appears in this movie.
    SPROING!!!!

    Loadsa TV shows and movies with non-G Casios... Big Bang Theory I believe Raj wears a calculator one. Moss and Roy in IT Crowd wear some too, but they may actualy be G's...
