The Casio F-91W is legendary. For 25 years, this has been one of the world’s best selling watches year after year. It’s probably the most affordable watch on the planet starting around $10. It’s been ironically picture on both the wrists of Barack Obama and Osama Bin Ladin. As I am beginning to start the digital category of the blog, I knew that the F-91W had to be the first watch that I reviewed! I couldn’t resist anymore and ordered it over the weekend. Check out my Casio F-91W unboxing!
Casio F-91W Unboxing: The Package
Casio is pretty uniform in how they package all their watches: blue and white cardboard box with the Casio logo. The watch itself wrapped in plastic wrap on a black plastic stand. It’s cheap, but not in a low-grade or vulgar way. Casio wants to give you the best value for your dollar, so they are not going to waste that money on some fancy package.
Casio F-91W Unboxing: The Strap
This version of the Casio F-91W comes with its iconic black resin strap with a black plastic buckle with Casio engraved in it. Each side of the band comes has an arrow point out what side the pins are located on. The strap feels cheap and is very common to break years before the F-91W stops ticking. I have a feeling that it will only be a matter of time before this bad boy is on a NATO strap.
Casio F-91W Unboxing: The Watch
The caseback is a utilitarian stainless steel. The back gives some basic model information and that it was made in Thailand. The front is the iconic black Casio rectangular case with cut off corners.
The digital watch face itself is surrounded by a blue border. It gives a very vintage 80s/90s vibe. It has three buttons- two on the left side and one on the right side. The bottom left bottom allows you to scroll through the watch modes (clock, stopwatch, alarm, setting time & calendar). The top right allows you to use the most underwhelming lume I have ever seen on a watch. It’s just enough to see the time in the dark, but if you are buying an F-91W- the lume feature is not really your priority
This is probably the most affordable watch on the planet. It’s not fashionable by any means, but still gives off a timeless vintage and utilitarian vibe. I would be surprised if many of you are noglastically looking at this since it seems like this was every kids first watch.
