I love Casio watches and, since the early 80s, haven’t bought anything other than a Casio for myself. (I’ve also never bought anything other than a Casio calculator but that’s another blog post.)
When the battery on my latest watch started to die for the second time a couple of weeks ago (I’d owned this one for about 5 years) I figured it was time for me to buy a new one.
28 years of Casio Watches
I owned this watch when I was six or seven years old (i.e. in the early 80s):
And this one some years later:
I then got this fabulous calculator watch in the early 90s (which I loved dearly):
Through the rest of the 90s I owned G-Shock watches; first this one:
And then this one:
Finally, in the mid 00s, I got myself a ProTrek:
My New, Simple Watch
My newest Casio is one of their basic models (the AE-2000W) which really just tells the time (though it does do that across 31 time zones):
I bought this simpler type because I don’t use my watch as often as I used to. That’s mainly because the ProTrek was too bulky to wear under business shirts so I couldn’t wear it to work every day. This new one isn’t much thinner but I’ll certainly give it a try.
That said, I do still wear my watch whenever else I’m out of the house and I do keep it next to my pillow every night.
And now I have this shiny new one to help me keep track of my day :)
