Hi Guys,

Now, don't slam me for getting commercial, but I found a calculator watch I really believe in. I'm the same guy who promotes HP-34C a couple of threads down, so that's why I'm really here. I don't know the seller at all, but I know all about this Casio calculator watch and I love it...

You will see a really nice picture for an eBay sale, for a Casio Calculator watch. Again, an older design has really nice fit & finish compared to the latest hunk o' junks from Casio (with built in 500 number phone directory or whatever). You just want a basic 4-function on your wrist? There it is. Would I like RPN? Sure but you can't find anything like that. I like the basic functionality, the size of it, the size of the keys, the styling. ALL GOOD !

There is even a black plastic of same design, for as little as $19 in local stores. But the nice Casio is Chrome, and that's darn hard to find lately, but there it is. I was pleased to see the guy in Hong Kong selling those and for a fact, he's got more, because I asked him.

I put one on my wrist about 3 years ago, to the laughter of all my friends. I stayed the course and find I use it DAILY. It is very nice to have a basic 4-function calc with you at all times.

This thing would've sold for $2000 back in 1979 (our nostalgia focus period) but now people laugh at you if you get one for $20 or $30. How societal values keep changing. Highly recommended for your basic wristwatch and calculator needs every day.

I'm passing it along because I believe in it not because I'm trying to make a buck.
