Casio Taps the 1980s for Its Retro Line of Smart (Looking) Watches

These days only people going for the ironic look would consider a gold digital watch a classy way to spruce up an outfit, but back in the 1980s they were cutting edge technology and high style. So Casio is bringing back a small collection of its swankiest designs in gold and silver for all you hipsters looking to complement your spats.

The silver versions are just $US30 each, while the gold models run between $US40 and $US65. And as far as functionality goes, the watches are only smart in terms of style. All you get is basic time and date functionality, an LED backlight, a single alarm, a countdown timer and a stopwatch. And yet another chance to look back and mock the 1980s. [Casio via Chip Chick]
