    The Databank is pretty nerdy, but pricey. I've got a calculator watch that toes the nerd line without breaking the bank.

    Good choice Stockae !

    If you want a classically styled nerd calculator watch look for one of the following on eBay.

    DBC-610
    DBC-62
    CA-53
    CA-55

    I have pics of all of them on my website. Look at calculator/databank page 3.

    Modern ones include

    DBC-32
    DB-55
    DB-360
    EDB-610
    DBC-1500
    DB-E30 ( Solar but not atomic)

    If you just search for db* on ebay you'll find most of the models, both databank and calculator.

    Let me know if you need any nerdy help

    The CA-53 is a nice 8 function calculator watch that has been sold since the 1980’s and is still being sold. Your local Wal-mart would have them for under $20

    Cheers

    I can only speak of newest databank, tried it in store so here is my impressions:

    - almost impossible to enter a name or a number, buttons are WAY to small
    - figuring out the functions with no manual is next to impossible
    - as far as I can tell reading the manual and from the web site, watch is not waterproof at all... so beware...

    To me atomic/5 band wave ceptor is neardy enough... but that's just me...

    There's no other watch more nerdy than this one:
    http://www.casio.com/products/Timepiece/Databank/DBC310-1

    Its little brother:
    http://www.casio.com/products/Timepiece/Databank/DBC150-1/


    The databank calculator DBC-310. NOT water resistant though .

    But it's sooooooo nerdy.

    The secret is to press the little keys diagonally from one corner to the other with your finger nail. Like the way you measure a TV screen. I think the sensitive spot is right on the number but I'm not sure.

    With the older vintage databanks you DO press the number.
    SPROING!!!!

    (oops! Time for a new watch!)
