Casio F-91W

Recommended Posts

My dad bought me one when I was 12 and I loved it, I couldnt take it of my wrist.

Had it for 18 years and it never let me down. But it stopped working last week, even with a new battery, not bad for an £8 watch bought in 1992 :)

So I got a new one today, I couldn`t resist it, must be the nostalgia.

I have alot of really nice watches but this plain and simple wee casio will always have a place in my heart :thumbsup:

hi,

I thought I check if you had `AC` ed the watch before giving up on it, even though I'm aware of having to do this after a battery change on a lot of casio's I still often forget, must be old age.

Ahhh perform an AC reset that could have been the problem :wallbash:

do you have to do that with all Casio`s when replacing the battery?

Hi,

Not all, but most. I have owned dozens of casio's over the years and only one was without this feature. It's also got me loads of cheap boot fair buys knowing this as people tend to think the watch is toast if a new battery does not fix it. fingers crossed you now have two f91w's :thumbsup:

I'm sure I had one of these when I was a kid... It's funny to compare them to a G-Shock like a Gulfman. Can someone do a comparison shot of the F-91W and a G-Shock? :partytime:

No one has big enough lens to get them both at the same time in the same frame :P
