Ultimate hipster watch,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Casio #DBC611G-1D Men's Gold Tone 25 Memory Calculator Databank Watch (Watch)
I consider myself to be the biggest hipster in town, so when I decided to buy a Casio calculator watch, I wanted to get the best. This watch is it...although I can't speak to the durability yet.
Let's be honest, no one cares about the DataBank or calculator, or even alarm functions...that's what phones are for these days.
So this watch fails at even it's primary purpose...telling time. The display is small and awkward, and the light is weak. It's OK, but there are far more functional digital watches out there for far less. And, the band painfully rips out my wrist hair...it's torture.
That brings us to the style of the watch, which transcends space and time...it is graceful on the wrist, and the anachronistic look could be right out of "The Empire Strikes Back." Add the gold tone to show that you're taking this seriously and I can't imagine another watch I'd take over it.

Thanks, Brocephus. I just ordered one. I've already got a fixed gear bicycle and messenger bag, and I'm thinking this watch is the one accessory that will complete the look for me.

If this is sarcasm, that's a home run reply right there.
