I was talking watches with my girlfriend and being slightly Bohemian and all said she really likes '80s style digital watches. Later that day I showed her pics of the classic F-91W and she really wanted one, and that why don't I get one as well seeing as they're so cheap.
3 days later we took delivery of them and I have to say I am humbled to be in the presence of what for me is a design masterpiece. My G's havent seen any wrist time since I recieved it.
I can understand why it is huge seller; a simple design with an easy to use module (no need for manual), accurate and costs about as much as a beer in London. Broken it? Just buy a new one.
Even though to many people this watch epitomizes poor taste, I am proud to wear it in defiance of their ignorance. Granted, it is not going to say you are succesful, but it is it's very uncoolness that makes it cool.
To the F-91W...
