    The official terrorist watch?

    Was browsing through my NAWCC newletter and found this interesting bit.

    -------



    Inexpensive Digital Wristwatch Known To
    Be A Favorite Of Terrorist Bomb Makers

    The Casio F-91W wristwatch, an inexpensive, widely available quartz digital wristwatch, has been identified by leading terrorism experts as an item in use by agents of al-Qaida.

    Briefing documents used to train anti-terrorism personnel at Guantánamo Bay advise that possession of the F-91W-- available online for around $10-- may indicate the wearer has been trained in explosives handling and bomb making by al-Qaida in Afghanistan.

    The report states: "The Casio was known to be given to the students at al-Qaida bomb-making training courses in Afghanistan at which the students received instruction in the preparation of timing devices using the watch.

    "Approximately one-third of the JTF-GTMO detainees that were captured with these models of watches have known connections to explosives, either having attended explosives training, having association with a facility where IEDs were made or where explosives training was given, or having association with a person identified as an explosives expert."

    It's best not to wear one to an airport or large event then.. However it is tarring with the same brush, if I'm honest.

    My apologizes if the article seem offensive. The OP link was a debate about if these casios were ever used in IED by terrorists. And that was one of the support document used.

    https://forums.watchuseek.com/f2/terr...ch-533568.html Well, this was last discussed two months ago on this same subforum... I guess we can expect another similar thread around August-September then.
