shame these new Casio retros only have the dim orange illumination rather than the bright green

Nope, that is a good price.

Oh really? I expected it to be blue. Hmmmm. I am not a fan of the orange lights either.

A shame that it is the true retro orange. I guess retro is only as far back as you'd prefer.

Very true

I used to have similar casio watch nearly 10 years ago. Can't believe they still sell it

very nostalgic, but surely nobody with a smartphone would buy this

Yep, me too - but sometime more than 10 years! But, reading between the lines, this isn't a patch on the original.

"Rectangular Resin Case with Plastic Bezel."

And one comment says it doesn't have the appointment reminder alarm. One of the functions I remember best.

Meh ill stick with my £6 bluetooth smart watch lol

Lots of people love retro watches. Not necessarily to use the databank function but more of a style thing I guess?

Voted hot! I used to use this watch to cheat in exams. The Databank function is great!

Retro would actually be a tiny bulb casting a dim light over only 2/3rds of the LCD screen

Already posted. And it was cheaper 5 seconds ago. Hot though!

Didn't know they still did these - they look great.... takes me back....very nostalgic...

Looking at a video on YT, it seems this truly is retro haha

if only parents understood how important a decent watch for kids at school really is. Heat for this btw

Purchased, great buy for when I go out on a date with a girl and divide the bill by 2!!!

Aww

bless

I can't believe they were still selling these 10 years ago. I desperately wanted one, but that would have been nearer 30 years ago.

Good find! I added an 8gb micro sd for £2.67 to get free delivery over £20 (came to £20.24) Needed one for a raspberry pi anyway! Heat added

While at the same time dimming the LCD as the battery was being hammered by the bulb.

Mr Bean has got one of those. Voted hot.

Had one 30 years ago and kept my full school time table on it. I think it took all Boxing Day to type if in.
