    Nothing can be more classic than the calculator watch from my childhood ;).

    Nice. I used to have one as a kid. I wish I still had it. I still have my Casio remote control watch my brother got for me.

    Yep, I had one of those as a kid. I remember trying to take a math test that allowed calculators and trying to uss my watch. The beeping of me pushing the buttons drove the class crazy.

    Wish I still had that watch.

    I had one too, the Data Bank version that you could use as a telephone directory. That came in handy back in those pre-cell phone days!

    I remember those but we are not allowed to wear it to school (for obvious reason or else the maths teacher would be out of work :P)

    Other than the cal. watch, the digital moon-graph was among the hottest item for the boys in school.

    I had a couple too when I was a kid, but they were rubbish (definitely not Casio), most of the digital quartz watches I had at that time were not anti-magnetic and a lot of those watches were killed by the magnetic fields coming from TV sets.

    I would not wear one now lol

    HAHHAHAHAHAH those were the days. Having a calculator watch in the early 90's was the coolest thing you could have. Things change
