    F30: Casio's Humblest

    How much wristwatch do you need?

    Almost nothing, answers the Casio F30, probably the humblest in all Casio's wristwatch range in current production: just hours, minutes, seconds, month and date. That's all you need.

    And maybe, in these days of digital multi-functions and baroque mechanical complications, the F30 has a point. A point in favor of basics, a point for the simple foundations of timekeeping.

    Retaining the legendary Lithium lettering on its bezel, right from the victorious days of the digital quartz revolution, the Casio F30 is a visual tribute to retro trends. Everything says retro in this small and light basic watch: the design, the crystal, the black bezel and strap, the plastic caseback, the simple pins that hold the strap on place and that can be removed with a simple push of a ballpoint pen.

    No 24 hours stuff for the F30, a small rectangular indicator let you know when it's the PM part of the day; No light at all, of course; just 2 little square bottons to adjust the settings and to see the month and date if you keep it pressed.

    You know you don't need any more, says the F30.

    For the forum's Casio digital current and vintage community, I share these comments and a few photos.

    Meet the F30, Casio's humblest.

    i got ur point, but still prefer and see the f91 as THE minimum standard watch. and it has all we need in daily life. the f30 is a bit too much of a watch from a candy machine.
