Why I'll always keep this Casio Digital Sport Watch around

I always try to keep a watch on my wrist for easy access to the time as even the best smartphone begs to be pulled from a pocket before it will confirm the date. And while I’m inching ever closer to investing in an Apple Watch — a steep climb given my ongoing loyalty to the Pixel 4 — I’ve yet to find a wristwatch as all-around perfect and useful for me as the Casio F91W Digital Sport Watch. My father sported it in yellowing photos I’ve come across and I distinctly remember him sporting the metal model, which equips Electro Luminescence. Regardless, the point is that the watch stands the test of time. As far as I’m concerned, everyone should have one of these $13 watches tucked into a drawer or glove compartment, just in case.

I first got one of these a few years out of high school, strapped for cash and grabbing bargain tech to get me through. A watch that ran me about $10 back then (and just a few dollars more in the years since) became one of the most long-lasting, functional and efficient devices I’ve ever had. And I think it’s presented similar value to others:


I’ve personally bought this watch four times (maybe five) in the last decade, rebuying it to replace the last one I’d lost during a move or under a bed (just once). Sure, something this simple isn’t for everyone. But its biggest value, in my opinion, is specifically everything it doesn’t try to do or be. The Casio sport watch tells me the time, repeatedly, no matter what I’m up to: running, working, swimming, walking, hiking, beaching, biking and so on — it doesn’t do much more than that, though. This watch plants itself solidly in a bed of mediocrity and, in that space, it carries itself with the utmost confidence. That’s the kind of watch I’d want to have strapping me during an apocalypse — or pandemic.

Casio F91W-1 Classic Resin Strap Digital Sport Watch

The Casio wristwatch is water-resistant so you don’t have to take it off for a shower, nor when you hit the pool or beach. It’s also virtually invincible — I’ve accidentally smashed it and dropped it but it has never broken or gone silent — it will scratch, like any other device will, but it won’t complain about it. The display is clean, simple and informative:

  • You get the time, which you can format to a 24-hour output, a must for me in any timekeeping device
  • You can set alarms
  • You can start a stopwatch
  • And you can use its backlight for nighttime timetelling — and I mean an actual light, a bulb in the back corner of the display that faintly spreads it glow across the digits, lighting them up just enough so you tell the time in pitch darkness.


But all of that aside, we have to talk about its style because a watch is as much an accessory as it is jewelry. And in that space, the Casio watch achieves a wonderful compromise between ancient tech (from the 20th century) and the modern aesthetic: It’s cool. You get the essential functions of a watch that isn’t one bit smart (well, the alarm is quite punctual) with a style that fits 80s nostalgia as much as it fits modern (though distant) boardrooms, where minimalism and aloofness dominate. Of course, if you wanted to get the value of a Casio-built watch and crank up the styling, you’ve got plenty of options.

Casio Men's Vintage A168WA-1 Electro Luminescence Watch

The backlit display of this Casio watch gives you a greenish glow across its back, so the digits get especially easy to read at night. Otherwise, it sports lots of the same functions and amenities as Casio’s other baseline watches.

Casio Men's G-Shock Quartz Watch with Resin Strap

Maybe you’re more active or want to strap that fitness-first aesthetic onto your wrist. Either way, the iconic G-Shock line from Casio is still a relatively affordable upgrade to consider.

Casio Men's Classic Quartz Watch with Resin Strap

Finally, perhaps you’re way too advanced for digital watches and rather lean on the analog display of the truly timeless. This simple Casio watch will run you the same as the sport watch and likely fits better with a nice going-out suit than the former.

Digital casio vintage

The cheap, simple digital watches Casio made in the 1980s have in recent years transformed from overlooked and under-appreciated to straight-up stylish. They never stopped making this type of watch, but the company has doubled down on their nostalgic value with more vintage reissues and variations than we can even keep up with. The latest, called the Vintage A100, is of particular note for its role in the Alien movie franchise.

That franchise is most associated, however, with a different watch: the Seiko x Giugiaro collaboration well-known to collectors as the Seiko "Ripley" after the character (played by Sigourney Weaver) who wore it in the 1986 film Aliens. Ripley wore a few watches in the franchise, but the watch you're looking at featured in the 1979 movie, Alien, and you might call it the "Casio Ripley." It was fitting for a sci-fi film at the time and today, even without the Hollywood connection, it looks wonderfully retro-futuristic — wonderfully, that is, if this is the type of nostalgia that speaks to you.

It's not just the movie that makes the watch interesting, however, as this is a modern remake of the F-100 watch that's also historically notable as the brand's first resin-cased watch. For Casio, that was a major milestone, as the brand would go on be known for its use of plastic — not least with its famously tough G-Shock line.


The look is like a variation of the the brand's basic digital watch formula with an LCD display and four buttons for various functions, but this one takes the buttons usually found on the case sides and places them right on the front. Further, rather than labeling them (as many Casio watches do), each button is simply identified by a different-colored bar next to it. There might be some practical benefit to having the buttons on the front of the watch, but most of all it lends a slightly funky, gadgety (reminiscent of the brand's calculator watches) and more colorful aesthetic.


The new watches come in four variations, none of which replicates exactly the one in the movie, which was all black with a positive (dark on light) digital display. The new watches come in basic silver, an ion-plated gunmetal finish (with negative display,) and a gold-toned version — as well as a special Pac Man version. Each is equally retro-chic, and they start at the crazily low price of $55 for silver, $75 for the gunmetal or gold-tone, and $99 for the Pac Man. You can pre-order now, and they're expected to be in stock at Casio by early September.

The Latest Digital Casio Is Incredibly Cool, But...

Top 5 Best Retro Casio Watches For a Vintage Style

The Casio digital watch is one of the most timeless timepieces to have ever been created, and they’re seeing a massive resurgence in popularity right now.

If you’re having trouble deciphering all of their long alphanumeric model names, this review guide of the best retro Casio watches should help you out.

Casio Digital Watches: Best Sellers

Casio F91W-1

The F91W-1 is the classic Casio watch, so if you’re looking for the most iconic one available, you’ve found it.

This model comes equipped with all of the helpful features you’d expect to find in a Casio watch, including an alarm, a chronograph, and a backlight so that you can see it in the dark.

The dark plastic construction features a utilitarian design, and this watch is instantly recognizable at a glance. This watch features quartz movement, and the results are displayed digitally. Above the time, you can cycle through stopwatch, calendar, and alarm functions.

One of the best things about this watch is its low price point. With a price that is ten times more affordable than many of its competitors, the F91W-1 is the perfect watch if you want something iconic that doesn’t break the bank.

We also loved the slim profile of this watch, as it can easily slide under a cuff without any trouble.

This watch’s legendary durability makes it an excellent choice for work or other tasks where you can expect your timepiece to get banged up.

Overall, this is an excellent watch that provides the best value for money out of any timepiece we’ve ever come across.

Casio CA53W-1

The CA53W-1 is commonly known by its other moniker, “the calculator watch.”

This brilliant design combines the functions of a calculator with those of a digital watch, and when it was first released, this watch was the bane of many math teachers across the world.

If you work in a field where you’re constantly handling numbers, having a calculator on your wrist doesn’t seem like a bad idea.

While the proliferation of smartphones has made this watch less functional than it once was, it’s still one heck of a fashion statement.

While it may be a little cluttered, the design of the calculator watch is surpassed only by the F91W-1 when it comes to notoriety.

Somehow, the extra buttons on this watch make it look even more retro. Functions include a stopwatch, alarm, and calendar, much like other Casio designs.

One thing to note is that it’s easier to navigate the modes and menus on this watch because it features more than the traditional four buttons you’d expect to find on a digital watch.

We have yet to see another accessory that combines form and function quite as seamlessly as the

Casio A168WA-1

If you’re not a fan of the resin cases featured on the previous two models, then the A168WA-1 should be right up your alley.

This watch features a classic Casio design coupled with a stainless steel body and wristband, giving it a more business-like look than some of the other Casio models.

Like most Casio watches, this model is resistant to a maximum of 100 feet of water, and it features a stopwatch, calendar, alarm, and backlight for use in the dark.

The stainless steel construction of this watch makes it a little more pricey than the resin models, but not by a huge margin.

The stainless steel wristband that comes with this watch is also adjustable, so you won’t have any trouble with its sizing.

This is also a relatively lightweight watch, so it may feel flimsy, but it’s a lot more durable than some of its more expensive competitors.

The top of this watch is made out of a mineral crystal, which is more resistant to scratches than glass, ensuring that you’ll always be able to see the time clearly.

If you want a Casio watch that looks a little more stylish but doesn’t give up any of the other advantages, this stainless steel model is an excellent choice.

Casio LA680WA-7DF

While this model is broadly similar to the other watches we’ve reviewed so far, its main difference is that it’s a women’s model.

The LA680WA-7DF features a slimmer, more feminine design that you would expect from a women’s watch, and you still get all of the advantages of owning a Casio.

With a slightly higher price than some of the other options on this list, this watch doesn’t provide you with quite as much value for money.

However, it is still extremely durable, and the top is fully resistant to scratches, like most other Casio watches.

The battery life of this watch typically lasts five years, and the resilient design means that this watch will likely outlast its battery.

If you’re looking for a ladies’ variant of the classic Casio watch, we’d highly recommend this attractive stainless steel variant.

Casio AE1300WH-8AVCF

There are a few details that set this Casio watch apart from the competition, including a World Time Map and an optional analog-style display.

However, aside from these differences, this product is a classic Casio, complete with a low price and excellent build quality.

This watch comes equipped with a solar battery that is designed to last twice as long as traditional Casio watch batteries: ten years.

There are also twin stopwatches programmed into the timepiece, with one that runs up to 60 minutes, and another which runs to 100 minutes.

Like all Casio watches, this model uses reliable quartz movement, which is linked to a digital display.

This model is also resistant to water at depths of up to 330 feet. Despite the extra features, this watch features a comparable price to most other Casio watches.


These five watches barely scratch the surface of what Casio has on offer, but each one is a unique example of the kinds of products that they produce.

We hope that our reviews were helpful and that you’ve managed to find a watch with all of the features that you were looking for.
